Paris Saint-German entertain Lens at the Parc des Princes with victory set to secure a maiden Ligue 1 crown for Mauricio Pochettino.

The Parisiens were denied the opportunity to seal the title in midweek despite a 3-0 victory at Angers, with Marseille's second-half comeback against Nantes keeping the champagne on ice.

Pochettino could be without Lionel Messi for this weekend's clash, with the Argentine suffering from an Achilles problem.

With that in mind, here's how the Parisiens could line up.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Keylor Navas (GK) - Expected to retain his place between the sticks amid Gianluigi Donnarumma's loss of form.

Achraf Hakimi (RB) - An ever-present for PSG this season and is set to win back-to-back domestic titles.

Marquinhos (CB) - PSG were boosted by his return from injury in Le Classique, bringing an assurance to the backline.

Sergio Ramos (CB) - Played very little football this season, but he was on the scoresheet in midweek.

Juan Bernat (LB) - Could come in for Nuno Mendes, with PSG spoiled for choice in the left-back area.

2. Midfielders

Idrissa Gueye (CM) - His industry without the ball is key for laying the foundation for the gifted attacking trio to strut their stuff.

Gini Wijnaldum (CM) - Impressive in the win over Angers in midweek, driving PSG forward in transition opportunities.

Danilo Pereira (CM) - Always pops up with a vital goal for PSG, although Pochettino enjoys his defensive work.

3. Forwards

Angel di Maria (RW) - Thrived as part of a front two with Mbappe in the win over Angers in midweek.

Kylian Mbappe (ST) - Closing in on 170 appearances for PSG, where he's found the net more than 140 times.

Neymar (LW) - Should return to the starting lineup after missing out against Angers through suspension in midweek.
