Paris Saint-Germain look for a first victory in four as they travel to Montpellier for their final away fixture of the Ligue 1 season.

The side from the capital has dropped points from leading positions in each of their last three outings - most recently letting a two-goal lead slip to draw 2-2 at home against Troyes - to potentially tee up a hugely disappointing conclusion to the season.

They have a great opportunity to get back to winning ways this weekend, however, facing a Montpellier side that has gone seven Ligue 1 fixtures without a win. Here's how Mauricio Pochettino could line his side PSG up.

1. PSG predicted lineup vs Montpellier (4-3-3)

GK: Keylor Navas - His four Ligue 1 clean sheets since mid-January is four more than Gianluigi Donnarumma managed in the same time.

RB: Achraf Hakimi -
Has enjoyed a solid maiden campaign in Paris, currently boasting ten goal involvements for his side.

CB: Marquinhos -
Will inevitably lead his colleagues out once again, with two goals in his last four behind him.

CB: Sergio Ramos -
Presnel Kimpembe's accumulation of yellow cards will see him miss this one, likely giving Ramos a start in the back line.

LB: Juan Bernat -
Has been building back to fitness in recent weeks and, after Nuno Mendes' woeful display last time out, could be reinstated here.

CM: Idrissa Gueye -
Should come back into the starting XI to beef up the middle of the pitch and provide a little bit more security.

CM: Danilo Pereira -
Having started ten of the previous 11 league outings for his side, the Portuguese powerhouse should be set for another berth.

CM: Marco Verratti -
Has displayed his wonderful quality in flashes in what has been another stop-start kind of season, but should be set for a fourth successive start here.

RF: Angel Di Maria -
Gave the fans a clinic in creativity last time out, and deserves to continue in the side before his expected summer departure, having been such a fantastic servant to the club.

CF:
Lionel Messi - Neymar's suspension should see a slight reshuffle of forward-line positions, although flexibility and elusiveness should definitely remain a theme.

LF:
Kylian Mbappe - Aiming to add to his 41 Ligue 1 goal involvements for the campaign so far, the club's undisputed talisman comes into this one having notched nine goals and seven assists in his last seven league appearances.
