Who is in the PSG predicted lineup for the game vs. Ajaccio?
PSG will play at the Parc des Princes for the second-to-last time this season when they host Ajaccio on Saturday, May 13, for MD35 of the Ligue 1 season after winning their second game in a row last week when Paris Saint-Germain beat Troyes 3-1 on the road.
This weekend might (or might not) mark the return of Lionel Messi to the pitch of the Parc to play one of his final games with PSG if the club and Christophe Galtier entirely lift the two-week-turned-one-week ban the Parisian organization imposed on the world champion following his unsanctioned trip to Saudi Arabia.
Galtier is expected to speak about Messi's situation in his press conference on Friday afternoon, and we'll know more then. For now, though, we're assuming Messi will not play or at least start on the bench and just enter the game through the second half.
While PSG cannot seal the Ligue 1 title this weekend, they can take a huge leap forward with a win and Lens/OM losing points and widening the gap to the current leaders and reigning champions of the competition.
There are only four more games to play and 12 points to win in the three weeks left on the schedule, so there is a chance Paris Saint-Germain wraps the weekend at as large a distance from the second place as nine points, pretty much putting the Ligue 1 trophy at an arms reach next week.
Here we take a look at how PSG could line up for the match against Ajaccio on Saturday evening as they return to the Parc des Princes on MD35 trying to make the final push toward the Ligue 1 title.
Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Donnarumma
One more game in Gigio's bag and it's now 34 of 38 for him. The clean sheets have not populated his game logs, but at least he can rely on a superpowered offense to bail him out most weekends.
