PSG are back in action on Wednesday with a Coupe de France last-16 clash against fierce rivals Marseille.


These are France’s top two sides, both in terms of current Ligue 1 position and Coupe de France track record, which will only fuel the fire of what is famously one of the most entertaining rivalries on show in Europe.

With a lot on the line, here’s how Christophe Galtier could set up.

GK: Gianluigi Donnarumma – With Keylor Navas no longer on the books, Donnarumma could be the starter in cup games from this point onwards.

RB: Achraf Hakimi – Sensational against Toulouse, Hakimi is playing some excellent football right now and, with Nordi Mukiele out injured, should get another start.

CB: Marquinhos – At the back, PSG are without both Sergio Ramos and Presnel Kimpembe, so there’s even more responsibility on Marquinhos’ shoulders.

CB: Danilo Pereira – Young El Chadaille Bitshiabu could get these minutes but this may be too intense of a game to throw the inexperienced skyscraper into.

LB: Juan Bernat – Nuno Mendes had a real nightmare against Toulouse and so Galtier may prefer the experienced head of Bernat.

CM: Warren Zaire-Emery – The teenager made a real impact off the bench against Toulouse and deserves a chance to prove himself in this big occassion.

CM: Marco Verratti – Having served his suspension, expect Verratti to waltz back into the starting lineup.

CM: Fabian Ruiz – We’re yet to see the best of Fabian in Paris but expect the Spaniard to get another start anyway, largely due to the fact Carlos Soler had a shocker last time out.

AM: Vitinha – A favourite of Galtier’s Vitinha should start in this role while Neymar remains out injured.

ST: Lionel Messi – Messi’s wonderstrike sealed the three points against Toulouse and the veteran superstar may have to be at his dazzling best again here.

ST: Hugo Ekitike – Ekitike has had mixed experiences in Paris so far but the 20-year-old will only be improving from his time alongside Messi.
