Midfielders: Marco Verratti, Vitinha, Fabian Ruiz

Marco Verratti's return to the lineup has been super anticipated but it's not quite happened yet. He finally played for 30 minutes last week against Angers after being expected to crack the starting XI--which he didn't.

Verratti should be on the pitch from the start this weekend, though, even more with PSG playing at the Parc des Princes.

Vitinha had an extraordinary game against Lens in which he scored his first goal of the season once and for all, but then followed that match with a stinker against Angers. He's hella young and going through the growing pains, though, so he will keep getting start after start for the remainder of the season, including this Sunday.

Fabian Ruiz is the man for the open slot with Galtier seemingly refusing to play any young player (Warren Zaire-Emery would make the most sense this deep into the campaign, but alas) and Verratti filling Carlos Soler's starting position from games past.

Rest assured, though, that if any of the three penciled-in starters misses the XI, then it'll be Soler out there from the get-go followed by Renato Sanches (if he's available), then WZE. Becauase Galtier will Galtier'd his XI no matter what.
