Ligue 1 title holders Lille take on Coupe de France winners PSG in the Trophee des Champions on Sunday at 7pm (UK time).
Recently-appointed Jocelyn Gourvennec starts his Lille tenure with an ominous opening game against Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG in France’s equivalent to the Super Cup — which will be held in Tel Aviv, Israel — with the latter having won the annual competition eight seasons in a row.

Lille vs PSG build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
It will be a completely new-look Lille come the referee’s whistle in Tel Aviv, with title-winning coach Christophe Galtier stepping down from his position and taking the job at Nice, while two of the club’s biggest stars have also left the Stade Pierre-Mauroy this summer in Mike Maignan and Boubakary Soumare. However, the likes of Sven Botman, captain Jose Fonte, Renato Sanches and Jonathan David are still flying the Lille flag and will want to inflict further woe on recently-dethroned PSG.
For Pochettino, the narrative surrounding his trophy drought has naturally concluded in Paris, with the Argentine clinching his first piece of silverware by winning this competition in January, beating Andre Villas-Boas’ Marseille 2-1 in Lens, with an 85th-minute penalty from Neymar deciding the contest. Having also won the Coupe de France in May, Pochettino’s side re-enter France’s Super Cup, but not as Ligue 1 winners, and they will be determined to bruise Lille’s confidence and get the psychological edge ahead of their bid to reclaim the title off Les Dogues in 2021/22.
- Lille (vs Porto): Jardim; Celik, Djalo, Botman, Bradaric; Andre, Xeka, Araujo; Bamba, David, Burak.
- PSG (vs Sevilla): Navas; Hakimi, Kehrer, Bitshiabu, Kurzawa; Gueye, Herrera, Dina Ebimbe; Gharbi, Draxler, Icardi.
Pochettino will be without a number of his star players as they enjoy well-earned breaks from their respective involvements in Euro 2020 and Copa America. The likes of Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes and Neymar, as well as Marco Verratti and Pablo Sarabia will be unavailable.

Player to watch: Achraf Hakimi (PSG)
Having joined from Italian champions Inter Milan for a bumper £51.3m, Hakimi will be eager to continue his medal-winning exploits by clinching another on Sunday. The forward-thinking full-back has proven one of the most dynamic and progressive defenders since bursting onto the scene for Real Madrid, and his attacking exploits will be key to the way PSG play this season under Pochettino. The Parisians have recruited a number of high-profile names this summer including the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma, but Hakimi may prove the most important cog for the way Pochettino executes his style of football. His ability to progress up the pitch and retreat when out of possession with such intensity will mesh well with the incisive passing brand of Pochettino, and on Sunday he will also play an important defensive role in trying to keep quiet fancy-footed winger Jonathan Bamba.
