Paris Saint-Germain return to Ligue 1 action with the visit of Olympique Lyonnais this weekend.
Prior to the international break, PSG’s campaign all but unravelled before their eyes. Neymar’s season-ending injury was followed by another early UEFA Champions League exit, falling to Bayern Munich at the last 16 stage.
A limp defeat at home to Rennes swiftly followed, while the long-term futures of Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi are up in the air – PSG could do with a win just to restore a bit of a feel-good factor around the club.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of this one.

Lyon predicted lineup (4-3-3): Riou; Kumbedi, Lovren, Lukeba, Tagliafico; Caqueret, Lepenant, Tolisso; Cherki, Lacazette, Barcola
PSG really are down to the bare bones, despite boasting an attack which features two of the best players of all time.
They looked out of sorts against Rennes just before the international break, but Lyon themselves have been stumbling from one disaster to another for a while now too.
It could boil down to who is the least calamitous on the night – advantage goes to the team with Mbappe and Messi to call on.
