Brest vs PSG XI: Predicted Lineups and team news for 2022-23 League 1

A deflated Paris Saint-Germain need to get their focus back on Ligue 1 when they travel to face Brest on Saturday.

Dumped from the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich, it almost feels as though PSG’s season is over now but Christophe Galtier’s side would be wise to remember that they are only eight points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 standings and their current form could see them slip back towards the chasing pack.

They’ll demand three points against a Brest side who have won just two of their last ten games in all competitions. PSG only won 1-0 when these two teams met back in September, however, so this may not be the walkover some fans expect.

Brest team news

Midfielder Mahdi Camara remains suspended and there are doubts over the fitness of winger Jeremy Le Douaron, who managed just shy of 50 minutes last time out before limping off with an injury.

Kenny Lala and Felix Lemarechal are definitely injured and there is expected to be no signs of either Mathias Pereira Lage or Karamoko Dembele.

Brest predicted lineup (4-3-3):

 Bizot; Fadiga, Dari, Brassier, Duverne; Belkebla, Lees-Melou, Magnetti; Honorat, Mounie, Del Castillo

PSG team news

Marquinhos went off injured in the first half of PSG’s defeat to Bayern and his replacement, Nordi Mukiele, was forced off at half-time as well. With Presnel Kimpembe out for the season, Galtier may have to get creative at the back.

Further forward, Renato Sanches made the bench in midweek as he steps up his return from a hamstring injury, but Neymar will be missing as he prepares to spend the rest of the season recovering from ankle surgery.

PSG predicted lineup (3-5-2): 

Donnarumma; Pereira, Ramos, Bitshiabu; Hakimi, Zaire-Emery, Verratti, Vitinha, Mendes; Messi, Mbappe
