PSG welcome Brest to the Parc des Princes this weekend when they want to arrest their troubling Ligue 1 form.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men are 11 points above the top of the table, but they have only won once in their last five games in the league.
Parisiens worked to make a 1-1 draw against Lyon last time out, and now they face a team from Brest that is embedded in the middle of the table this weekend.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.

Lionel Messi is likely to return to the squad after missing last weekend’s draw against Lyon due to a positive test for Covid-19.
Pochettino has actually struggled with a number of Covid-19 cases after Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler, Gianlugi Donnarumma, Layvin Kurzawa and Danilo were also absent last time.
Elsewhere, Achraf Hakimi, Idrissa Gueye and Abdou Diallo will miss out on their participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Midfielder Haris Belkebla will be missing for the away team due to his involvement with Sierra Leone in the Africa Cup of Nations.
At the same time, Romain Del Castillo is doubtful with a groin injury, while Sebastien Cibois will miss,
PSG will draw encouragement from their latest record against Brest, having won their last ten straight meetings dating back to 2011.
Pochettino’s team also beat Brest for four in the reverse match in August, with Ander Herrera, Kylian Mbappe, Gueye and Di Maria all on the results list.

There are still questions about which players Pochettino will be able to choose from during the recent Covid-19 outburst at PSG.
Paris’s league form has been worrying for a club with its resources, but the root of the problem is largely away.
PSG’s strength in depth means they should be able to ignore Brest with changes in hand, and fans will hope to see more of those like Edouard Michut and Xavi Simons in the meantime after their matches against Lyon last weekend.
Prediction: PSG 3-0 Brest
