Carlo Ancelotti's side have started the season sluggishly, and will be wary of the visitors, who have won their last eight Ligue 1 games in a row

  PROBABLE LINE-UPS

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN


Sirigu
Jallet, Alex, Sakho, Maxwell
Matuidi, Verratti
Menez, Pastore, Nene
Gameiro

GIRONDINS DE BORDEAUX



Carrasso
Mariano, Ciani, Planus, Tremoulinas
Ben Khalfallah, Sane, Sertic, Maurice-Belay
Obraniak
Gouffran


Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti will have to make do without Ezequiel Lavezzi after the ex-Napoli player was shown a straight red card in Sunday's frustrating 0-0 draw with Ajaccio. The Argentine forward has been suspended for three games (one suspended) with Ancelotti summoned to a disciplinary hearing on September 13 for his own dismissal.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic remains doubtful after missing the trip to Stade Francois Coty with an ankle injury, with Kevin Gameiro on standby to replace him should the Swede fail a late fitness test. Goalkeeper Nicholas Douchez and Mohamed Sissoko are still sidelined.

New signing Thiago Silva could be in line for his debut, albeit from the bench after being unveiled only on Friday, while Thiago Motta began training this week after suffering a hamstring problem during the Euro 2012 final.

Bordeaux coach Francis Gillot is set to welcome back Czech midfielder Jaroslav Plasil and Landry N'Guemo, who returned to the squad in Thursday's Europa League play-off draw with Red Star Belgrade.

Mathieu Chalme, Kevin Olimpa, Henrique, Abdou Traore and David Bellion all continue rehabilitation with their respective injuries, though les Girondins should largely field the same XI that beat Rennes 1-0 on matchday two.
