The "Fantastic Four" to the rescue: Paris coach SG Thomas Tuchel decided on Sunday to start their stars Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, Mauro Icardi and Angel Di Maria together, to attack the Lille fortress, impregnable in Ligue 1 this season (9:00 p.m.).
The main question on the Paris side concerned the replacement in midfield of Marquinhos, injured: it was ultimately Idrissa Gueye that the German technician decided to align alongside Marco Verratti.
The Senegalese, trained at Losc where he was champion of France in 2011, finds for the first time the Pierre-Mauroy stadium, after his departure for England in 2015.
On the Lille side, coach Christophe Galtier has decided to leave his winger Jonathan Bamba, ineffective, on the bench. The Brazilian Luiz Araujo recovers his place in attack.
Paris SG can extend their lead over their Marseille runner-up to ten points if successful, while the LOSC, seventh, needs a feat to keep the podium in sight.
Composition of the teams:
Lille: Maignan - Celik, Fonte (cap), Gabriel, Reinildo - André, Bo. Soumaré - R. Sanches, Ikoné, Araujo - Osimhen
Paris SG: Navas - Meunier, Thiago Silva (cap), Kimpembe, A. Diallo - Di Maria, Verratti, Gueye, Neymar - Icardi, Mbappé
