Auxerre boss Jean-Guy Wallemme has no major injury concerns ahead of the visit of Paris Saint-Germain to Stade de-l'Abbe Deschamps on Sunday.

Delvin Ndinga and Ben Sahar both participated in training sessions, though neither is expected to make the starting XI as the coach is tipped to go with the same XI that lost narrowly to Olympique Lyonnais last week.

Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti heads into the match on the back of a morale-boosting 2-1 victory over fierce rivals Olympique de Marseille.

Les Parisiens are without Mohamed Sissoko after his red card in the 'Clasico', and with Ancelotti tipped to favour the 4-2-3-1 formation, Mathieu Bodmer is in line to make an appearance.

Clement Chantome is still sidelined, and with Jeremy Menez deputising as a centre-forward to full effect in place of out-of-form Guillaume Hoarau and Kevin Gameiro, the trend may be set to continue away to Auxerre on Sunday.
