Nancy boss Jean Fernandez has been boosted by the news that Joel Sami is fit for the visit of league leaders Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday.

The Congolese centre-back suffered a thigh strain last weekend, but has returned to training for the beleaguered club's clash against their star-studded opponents. Striker Djamel Bakar is suspended after being sent off in the 1-1 draw with Sochaux, as is Simon Zenke.

Paris Saint-Germain meanwhile can welcome back Marco Verratti from domestic suspension, after the 19-year-old missed the 1-0 win over Reims last weekend.

Midfielder Nene is out for six weeks having suffered a fractured cheekbone in that game, joining Mamadou Sakho on the sidelines with the centre-back struggling with a hamstring problem.

  DID YOU KNOW?

  • Nancy sit bottom of the table, having won just one of their nine league games to date. They have also scored a league-low of just three goals.
  • Jean Fernandez's men were unbeaten after week two, but have since lost six games on the trot, before arresting that record with a 1-1 draw with Sochaux.
  • ASNL achieved an unlikely 2-1 win over PSG in this fixture back in March, ultimately derailing the visitors' title hopes.
  • Nancy also won 1-0 win against PSG at the Parc des Princes in November 2011. They were the only side to do the double against them last year.
  • PSG moved top of Ligue 1 with a 1-0 win over Reims, coupled with Marseille's shock 1-0 defeat to Troyes.
  • Carlo Ancelotti's men are unbeaten in domestic football since a 2-1 reverse to Lille in April.
  • Les Parisiens, who have collected as many points as the whole of last season, have scored 19 goals in the last 15-minute period of matches this season.
