Team News

Malang Sarr is fit again but may not get a place in the XI here.
Christophe Herelle is also available, and should partner Dante in central defence.
Pierre Lees-Melou had missed the cup win over Red Star through suspension, but will come back into midfield.
Adam Ounas could also play a more advanced role, with Danilo taking his place in central midfield.

Benjamin Bourigeaud and Clément Grenier have been definitively ruled out; look for the visitors to play a 4-4-2 formation in order to leave the midfield less stretched.
With Hamari Traoré and Damien Da Silva suspended, Julien Stéphan will likely opt for teenager Sacha Boey at right-back.
