PSG vs Marseille build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Pochettino stepped into the PSG hot seat earlier this month and has so far overseen two matches (a 1-1 draw at Saint-Etienne, and a recent 3-0 home victory over Brest), but he already faces his biggest challenge as manager of the Parisian behemoth: winning a trophy at a club where domestic silverware is par for the course.
So, Pochettino has the opportunity to end his silverware duck and finally lift a trophy as manager, but he faces a Marseille who have already defeated PSG this season, with Villas-Boas masterminding a 1-0 win at the Parc des Princes on matchday two in Ligue 1, a game in which five players received a red card.
- PSG (vs Brest): Navas; Dagba, Marquinhos, Diallo, Bakker; Gueye, Herrera, Verratti; Di Maria, Mbappe, Kean.
- Marseille (vs Dijon): Mandanda; Sakai, Gonzalez, Caleta-Car, Nagatomo; Rongier, Kamara, Gueye; Thauvin, Radonjic, Benedetto.
The big news for PSG is that Neymar returned to training earlier this week and could feature on Wednesday. The likes of Presnel Kimpembe, Danilo Pereira and Leandro Paredes also face late fitness tests to make the matchday squad, but Rafinha and Thilo Kehrer remain out indefinitely.
For Marseille, Morgan Sanson and Kevin Strootman are unlikely to take part, with the latter currently in Genoa to complete a loan move, while the former is struggling with a hamstring agitation.
Players to watch:
- PSG: Mauro Icardi’s season has been plighted by injury troubles but the mercurial Argentine returned from his latest setback to feature over the weekend, playing 25 minutes in the 3-0 win over Brest. The former Inter Milan striker entered the fray with PSG a goal up, but in his brief cameo was able to score and assist to complete a comprehensive first win for Pochettino. The new PSG boss could give his compatriot the nod on Wednesday ahead of Moise Kean, looking to add some goalscoring pedigree and aggression to his frontline as he aims to avoid a repeat of the club’s early-season mishap against Marseille.
- Marseille: The Phocaeans are not quite firing on all cylinders as they were last season, but Villas-Boas will be buoyed by the recent form of Florian Thauvin. The France international has been simply sensational since returning from Newcastle in 2016 (initially on loan) but missed the majority of last season with a long-term ankle ligament injury, which kept him sidelined for six months. It has not taken long for Thauvin to find form again, though, with six goals and seven assists to his name in Ligue 1 this term, including the winner against PSG back in September. He is the club’s top goalscorer and top creator and could prove the difference again on Wednesday.
