Paris Saint-Germain team news

Achraf Hakimi should come back into the starting lineup on Wednesday

Enrique made several changes to his starting XI at Lille following Wednesday’s draw in Dortmund. The Spaniard should return the likes of Achraf Hakimi and Milan Skriniar to his defence and revert to a back four.

Gianluigi Donnarumma is still suspended for the hosts and Randal Kolo Muani could replace Bradley Barcola in the frontline.

PSG’s injury list is pretty extensive and Enrique could be without Carlos Soler and Goncalo Ramos in midweek due to illness. Presnel Kimpembe, Sergio Rico, Nuno Mendes, Fabian Ruiz, and Keylor Navas remain sidelined.

Prediction: Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 Metz

It would not be beyond the realm of possibility for Metz to switch to a defence-heavy setup in a bid to quell the PSG strikeforce, who are normally in a merciless mood at the Parc des Princes, but their resistance should ultimately prove futile.

Profligacy has harmed Enrique’s men heading into the Christmas period, but a straightforward success – their 14th in a row against Metz – should come their way before the New Year celebrations commence.
