After their midweek heroics against Manchester United at Old Trafford, Thomas Tuchel's side face another difficult away trip

Paris Saint-Germain will aim to continue their recent run of success when they visit Saint-Etienne’s Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Ligue 1 duty on Sunday.

Heading into round 25 of action in France’s top flight, PSG command a 10-point advantage over Lille at the summit, though their attentions turned to Europe in midweek as they impressively eased past Manchester United 2-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash.

Saint-Etienne were also in action over the course of the week, playing host to Strasbourg in an encounter that saw them run out 2-1 winners.

Squads & Team News
Position Saint-Etienne players
Goalkeepers Vermot, Ruffier, Moulin, Bajic
Defenders Polomat, Saliba, Kolodziejczak, Silva, Perrin, Debuchy, Subotic, Panos
Midfielders M'Vila, Ait Bennasser, Vada
Forwards Cabella, Diony, Khazri, Gueye, Nordin, Salibur, Monnet-Paquet, Beric, Abi
Saint-Etienne striker Lois Diony is back after suffering a cut to his foot in midweek that prevented him from playing against Strasbourg. Given that Robert Beric stepped in to score one and assist the other, he is not guaranteed to start.

Head coach Jean-Louis Gasset, who was once assistant to Laurent Blanc at Parc des Princes, otherwise has few major concerns, though January signing Valentin Vada is out.

Ex-Arsenal man Mathieu Debuchy is set to be recalled.

Possible Saint-Etienne starting XI: Ruffier; Perrin, Subotic, Kolodziejczak; Debuchy, M’Vila, Ait Bennasser, Gabriel Silva; Cabella; Beric, Khazri

Position PSG squad
Goalkeepers Buffon, Areola
Defenders Kehrer, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat, Marquinhos, Dani Alves, Kurzawa, Dagba, N'Soki
Midfielders Verratti, Draxler, Di Maria, Paredes, Nkunku
Forwards Mbappe, Choupo-Moting, Diaby
Paris Saint-Germain are again without Neymar and Edinson Cavani, leaving them short of offensive options beyond Kylian Mbappe.

Thomas Meunier continues to miss out with concussion while there are some doubts over Marco Verratti.

With a busy fixture list, which will see them host Bordeaux in midweek, rotation in the starting XI seems likely.

Possible Paris Saint-Germain starting XI: Areola; Dagba, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Kurzawa; Paredes, Dani Alves; Diaby, Draxler, Di Maria; Mbappe

Match Preview
Presnel Kimpembe PSG Manchester United UEFA Champions League 12022019

Paris Saint-Germain enjoyed a terrific week, largely thanks to a 2-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, which puts them in a strong position to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2016.

Thomas Tuchel’s men made light of the absence of Neymar and Edinson Cavani to run out winners thanks to strikes from Presnel Kimpembe – his first for the capital club – and Kylian Mbappe.

The result and the maturity of the performance has heightened the expectation that PSG are serious challengers for the European crown, although the former Dortmund boss was eager to keep his side’s feet on the ground.

“We know we are capable of winning, but they are capable of winning in Paris as well,” he said in the immediate aftermath. “That's what sport is all about, particularly when we are playing football and in the Champions League. Now of course we will enjoy this but tomorrow we start preparing for the game against Saint-Etienne.

“We cannot rest on our laurels and start thinking about the quarter-finals as it is only half-time in the tie.”

Experienced full-back Dani Alves, meanwhile, was rather more forthright in his aim.

“I think we have to lose the virginity in the Champions League this season once and for all. We are working hard for it,” he said.

Indeed, Ligue 1 is virtually tied up for the Parc des Princes side, who can afford to channel their efforts towards Europe.

Their recent form domestically has wavered, with losses against Guingamp in the Coupe de la Ligue and PSG in Le Championnat since the winter break, and a Saint-Etienne side who have lost only once this season are unlikely to be a pushover.
