PSG vs Nimes build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
PSG enjoyed a good start to life under Mauricio Pochettino who, after replacing Thomas Tuchel at the start of the year, led his new side to four wins from his opening five matches across all competitions (only drawing against Saint-Etienne in his first game). That run also included a 2-1 win over Marseille in the Trophee des Champions and had PSG back top of Ligue 1, looking to continue their recent dominance of French football.
However, at the weekend they hit their first roadblock, losing 3-2 to Lorient, who went into the game down in 19th and are still in the relegation battle. Initially going behind, PSG did fight back to hold a 2-1 lead going into the final 10 minutes thanks to a brace of Neymar penalties. But goals from Yoane Wissa and Terem Moffi turned the game back on its head, handing Pochettino his first defeat as PSG manager, who have now dropped to third, three points behind leaders Lille.
Although PSG did lose to a relegation battler at the weekend, they will still fancy their chances against Nimes this week, with the visitors going into the game bottom of the league. Things are so close at the bottom of the Ligue 1 table, with Nimes only three points from safety and holding a game in hand over 17th-placed Nantes. However, their defensive problems have given them a mountain to climb with a goal difference of -27.
Nimes have won just four games all season, two of which came in their opening six matches, and go into this fixture having earned four points from their past 11 Ligue 1 matches, though that did include a 2-1 win over PSG’s rivals Marseille.
- PSG (vs Lorient): Rico; Florenzi, Kehrer, Kimpembe, Kurzawa; Di Maria, Paredes, Pereira, Neymar*; Icardi, Mbappe.
- Nimes (vs Angers): Reynet; Alakouch, Deaux, Briancon, Meling; Cubas; Ferhat, Fomba, Ripart, Eliasson; Kone.
PSG will be without Neymar for this week’s game, with the Brazilian suspended for an accumulation of cards (despite not being booked in the defeat to Lorient). Juan Bernat, Ander Herrera, Abdou Diallo and Marco Verratti continue to be absent, but PSG will be hoping Keylor Navas and Marquinhos have recovered in time after missing the weekend’s game through injury.
Sidy Saar, Pablo Martinez and Loick Landre are injured for Nimes.

Players to watch:
- PSG: The winter transfer window has come and gone, and Angel Di Maria remains a PSG player. But the Argentinian still has not been offered a new
contract and, as things stand, is still set to leave in the summer. So now more than ever Di Maria is playing for his future, whether it be a new contract with PSG or a move elsewhere. So far this season, the winger, who turns 33 this month, has scored two goals and recorded six assists in Ligue 1 but hasn’t been as effective since Pochettino took charge, with just the one assist. Di Maria has been linked with a return to the Premier League, most notably Tottenham, but he will need a good few months to push any move through.
- Nimes: If Nimes are to have any chance of getting something PSG they will need Zinedine Ferhat to step up and counter their weak defence. The Algerian midfielder has been directly involved in more goals than any other Nimes player, with six – over a third of their total Ligue 1 tally for the season. Ferhat’s goal contributions have been evenly split too, with three goals and three assists but he does not go into this game in good form. He hasn’t been directly involved in a goal since November 8, a run now of 11 games in which Nimes have managed to score just seven times.
