Welcome to our live blog of St-Etienne vs PSG
Claude Puel’s side are unbeaten in their last five Ligue 1 fixtures; and will be looking to build on draws in their last two league outings with a win.
Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will take the reins for the first time as PSG boss; the French champions thrashed Strasbourg 4-0 in their last league game and are third in the table, a point behind league leaders Lyon.
Saint-Etienne will have to shuffle their midfield as Madhi Camara and Yvan Neyou are both suspended.
Zaydou Youssouf is likely to return to the host’s engine room alongside Lucas Gourna-Douath.
Panagiotis Retsos, Yvann Macon, Gabriel Silva and Wahbi Khazri are all out of tonight’s game through injury.
Pochettino could be without as many as 10 players for his first match in charge of the Parisians, Neymar is not expected to return from his ankle injury just yet.
Layvin Kurzawa, Alessandro Florenzi and Presnel Kimpembe also remain on the side lines, whilst Brazilian midfielder Rafinha has reportedly contracted coronavirus.
Juan Bernat is out with a long term injury and question marks remain over the fitness of Danilo Pereira, Mauro Icardi, Abdou Diallo and Pablo Sarabia, however the latter two have an outside chance of being available for tonight’s game.
