With only a week between today and the return of the Ligue 1, PSG will be facing Quevilly Rouen Metropole in the second mid-season friendly staged before kicking their second half of the year off next week.
Last Friday, Paris Saint-Germain took on Paris FC and defeated the minnow club from the capital 2-1 in a 60-minute match. It's now another second-division opponent PSG will be facing on their training ground.
Quevilly will be visiting Camp des Loges today for a midday kickoff at the PSG training ground.
The Parisian will be able to count on a few more players than they had available last week, although most of them have just returned to the capital throughout the past few days so they might not be entirely fit yet.
PSG staged their Friday friendly against Paris FC to get their players warm ahead of today's game against Quevilly, but mostly with the matchup against Strasbourg at Parc des Princes next Wednesday, Dec. 28.
International players from Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Costa Rica are already available and training with PSG
Keylor Navas, Pablo Sarabia, Carlos Soler, and Vitinha returned to the training ground earlier this week. They are not expected to start today's friendly, although they might see some minutes at the final stretch of the match.
Ethan Mbappe, the younger brother of Kylian Mbappe, made his debut with PSG's first team last Friday in the friendly against Paris FC and helped Paris Saint-Germain earn a 2-1 victory.
On the goal, Gianluigi Donnarumma made way for Sergio Rico to start last week. The Italian could man the posts today having a week-and-change of training and rest at Camp des Loges already under his belt.
The defense, barring an unexpected rotation and changes made by coach Christophe Galtier, should feature the same four players that appeared in it last week: Juan Bernat and Nordi Mukiele (goalscorer on Friday) on the flanks, with the pairing of Sergio Ramos and El Chadaille Bitshiabu in the middle of the line.
The middle of the field should be the strongest line of PSG today, with three internationals available and expected to start this game in Marco Verratti, Fabian Ruiz, and Renato Sanches.
Three more top-quality players and World Cup participants, Spaniards Pablo Sarabia and Carlos Soler, and Portuguese Vitinha, might make a late cameo after having trained for just a few hours with the rest of the squad.
Three youngsters should play up front. Gharbi (scored the game-winning goal last week) and Housni already did last Friday making another push to feature more prominently in the first team during the next few months and years.
The same was the case for first-teamer Hugo Ekitike, who got the starting nod along with the other two kids.
