Defenders: Nuno Mendes, Danilo, Marquinhos, Achraf Hakimi

One piece of bad news, one piece of bad news in defense for PSG. Nordi Mukiele was ruled out of Sunday's game early so that was bad but at the same time expected. No need to mention Kimpembe is out for the year.

Sergio Ramos, though, didn't have a problem until late in the week and has now been also ruled out Sunday. Cold world for Galtier, who won't be able to use a five-man defense as was the case in games past considering he basically has three other men capable of playing center-back and judging by his decisions in prior games: two starting, one in the bench.

That means Danilo and Marquinhos will start, with youngster El Chadaille Bitshiabu waiting on the bench only making it to the pitch in case of emergency.

The full-back positions will return to full strength as both Nuno Mendes and Achraf Hakimi are available and fully fit. Hakimi had missed a lot of time of late, only appearing in the games against Bayern Munich, but he is coming off logging 50 minutes with Morocco on international duty so that's promising.

Juan Bernat brought some late doubts to the table but he made the list and will be the most interesting option off the pine. Whatever that means...
