Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti has the luxury of a near-fit squad with the only absentee being midfielder Clement Chantome who is still sidelined with a hip injury.

However, Ancelotti is still yet to decide on his best eleven, with team changes and uncertainty witnessed nearly every game, to the point of which club captain Mamadou Sakho being dropped, and even Jeremy Menez filling in the unusual position of centre-forward.

Nevertheless, Kevin Gameiro's display in the 1-1 draw with Auxerre last weekend should see him back in contention, by Momo Sissoko is still banned. Additionally, Ceara and Maxwell are injured.

On the other hand, Sochaux's Eric Hely has a number of injury concerns. Jeremy Brechet (Achilles), Edouard Butin (knee), Steven Mouyokolo (knee), Damien Perquis (elbow) and Yacine Mikari (knee) are all out.
