Evian could well name the same starting XI that impressively dismantled Stade Rennais, winning 4-2 in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

That would mean Kevin Berigaud - a scorer at the weekend - retaining his place ahead of Yannick Sagbo, with no other pressing issues for coach Pascal Dupraz to consider.

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti is set to rest a few members of his side - most notably those that featured in both games against Barcelona and ESTAC Troyes in the past week.

Kevin Gameiro's outburst when substituted at the weekend could well cost him a place, with the returning Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to lead the line. The likes of Clement Chantome and Zoumana Camara are also in line for a recall.
