PSG hosts OGC Nice this Friday, September 15, on the occasion of MD5 of the French championship. The national team break is over and the team led by Luis Enrique is already preparing to resume league activity.

The Parisians will assume this commitment just four days before making their Champions League debut against Borussia Dortmund next Tuesday. It is expected that this event will also serve as a tribute to Marco Verratti, who after 11 years in the French capital signed for Al-Arabi of Qatar.

PSG's situation

As is usual after a FIFA date, PSG will have to deal with some absences due to injury. The most relevant is that of Marco Asensio, who had started in the “false 9” position in the Parisians' last two games. Surely Luis Enrique will opt for the only pure center forward he has; Goncalo Ramos, who has also just scored a brace with Portugal.

The presence of Kylian Mbappe is also in doubt since he did not participate in the last match of the France team. The one who did participate was Randal Kolo Muani. The 24-year-old Frenchman will have the opportunity to debut with the Paris Saint-Germain shirt at the Parc des Princes.

Nice's situation

The visitors have to deal with a couple of injuries. Although there were doubts about Khephren Thuram's presence in the starting XI, the local press placed him in the squad. The French midfielder was the subject of much speculation about a possible transfer during the summer, but he remained in Nice. Alexis Claude Maurice and Antoine Mendy are out.

Former Atalanta star Jeremie Boga is vying to start on the left flank, while Jean-Clair Todibo will return from international duty with France to command the Nice defense alongside veteran Dante.

PSG and Nice predicted lineups

PSG's predicted starting XI vs. Nice: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Danilo, Skriniar, Hernández – Zaïre-Emery, Ugarte, Vitinha – Dembélé, Ramos, Mbappé (or Kolo Muani).

Nice's predicted starting XI vs. PSG: Bulka – Atal, Todibo, Dante, Bard – Sanson, Ndayishimiye, Thuram – Laborde, Moffi, Boga.
