Carlo Ancelotti's title-winners bring the celebration to the Parc des Princes for their final home game of the season against the visitors, who have been consigned to Ligue 2


Newly-crowned Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are unlikely to change too much from the side that clinched their third French title at Olympique Lyonnais last week.

Marco Verratti and Salvatore Sirigu return from suspension and should feature, with Carlo Ancelotti insisting that the club will not slow down despite the title being sealed last week.

Former England captain David Beckham - who announced his intention to retire at the end of the season - will likely start on the bench for what will be his final home game of a glittering career.

Stade Brestois, who were relegated following Evian's 4-0 win over Nice last weekend, are also unlikely to differ too much in starting personnel, though coach Corentin Martins has hinted at a reshuffle.
