Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Paris Saint-Germain could line up for Saturday's Ligue 1 clash with Brest.
Paris Saint-Germain will not be able to call upon Lionel Messi for their Ligue 1 encounter with Brest on Saturday night.
The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner is yet to return to team training following COVID-19 infection, but Layvin Kurzawa, Danilo Pereira, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler are all thought to be back with the group.
However, Neymar is still out injured, and the trio of Abdou Diallo, Achraf Hakimi and Idrissa Gueye remain away on Africa Cup of Nations duty.
Donnarumma ought to return in between the sticks following Navas's positive COVID-19 test, as Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe keep Sergio Ramos out of the team.
Nuno Mendes can also expect to hold his spot over Juan Bernat, but Thilo Kehrer will hope to demote Colin Dagba to the bench after scoring his side's equaliser against Lyon.
Leandro Paredes is set for another start in the middle with Gueye absent, and he ought to be joined by Marco Verratti and Georginio Wijnaldum for Saturday's game.
Ander Herrera will likely make way if Di Maria is fit enough to start on the right, as Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe complete Mauricio Pochettino's attack.
PSG possible starting lineup: Navas; Kehrer, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes; Wijnaldum, Paredes, Verratti; Di Maria, Icardi, Mbappe
