This Saturday, PSG host FC Nantes as part of MD26 of the Ligue 1 season. After the great victory at Olympique Marseille (0-3), the Parisian team will face 13th-place Nantes in the French championship without Neymar and without Verratti, but with a competitive group anyway.
The team led by Christophe Galtier will try to stay on the path of victory and move even further away from their closest rivals in the league, Marseille, who sit eight points behind the Parisians in the Ligue 1 standings.
Winning won't be the only objective on PSG's to-do list, though, as the squad will also try to raise their morale and establish a strong state of mind looking ahead to their visit to Bayern Munich on March 8 for the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16.

Christophe Galtier has a particular headache regarding the management of his squad for the rest of the year, and it all comes down to Presnel Kimpembe being out for the remainder of the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon. Therefore, the three defenders that Galtier likes to use are not available for today's game.
The French coach will only be able to maintain his 3-5-2 system if Danilo Pereira or Nordi Mukiele take over the role of third center back. Marco Verratti is suspended, so Galtier will probably need Danilo in midfield unless he uses Warren Zaire-Emery. Neymar and Renato Sanches are also out injured.
Les Canaris will be without Nicolas Pallois, their starting center-back, while Quentin Merlin and Charles Traore could also be out. That means 19-year-old Jaouen Hadjam is leading the race to start for Antoine Kombouare's team in the mid
