PSG entertain Troyes in Ligue 1 in the Parisiens' penultimate league outing at the Parc des Princes this season.

Mauricio Pochettino's side let a lead slip for the second time inside seven days when they conceded twice in the final quarter of an hour in their 3-3 draw with Strasbourg last time out.

Kylian Mbappe netted his 130th Ligue 1 goal in the game and the Frenchman could be playing one of his last game's for the club, with a move to Real Madrid edging closer.

In the meantime, here's how the Parisiens could line up this weekend.

Keylor Navas (GK) - Has established himself as Pochettino's No.1 in recent months given Gianluigi Donnarumma's disappointing form.

Marquinhos (CB) - The leader at the heart of the PSG backline, leading by example with his consistent performances.

Sergio Ramos (CB) - Pochettino's move to a three-man defence has seen the Spaniard return to the team.

Presnel Kimpembe (CB) - Exceptionally strong in defensive duels and boasts a cultured left foot.

Achraf Hakimi (RWB) - Excellent business from PSG to secure the Moroccan's services, underlining his credentials as the best wing-back in the world.

Idrissa Gueye (CM) - Likely to go straight back into the side after he was suspended last weekend.

Marco Verratti (CM) - Netted an unfortunate own goal last time out against Strasbourg.

Nuno Mendes (LB) - With his blend of precision and power, the Portuguese is destined for a bright future.

Lionel Messi (RW) - His world-class strike in the draw with Lens secured the title for the Parisiens last month. A doubt with a rib injury but will be keen to play.

Kylian Mbappe (ST) - Netted his 130th goal in Ligue 1 last time out, with only Edinson Cavani having scored more in the top-flight in France in the 21st century.

Neymar (LW) - Hasn't quite been at his best this season, although he's laid on three assists in his last four games.
