Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti is set to welcome back Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was suspended for Wednesday's 3-1 Coupe de France win over Toulouse on Wednesday.

Kevin Gameiro started alongside Ezequiel Lavezzi that night, but Ancelotti will likely pump for the latter to start with the returning Swede. Marco Verratti should keep his place in midfield ahead of Clement Chantome in midfield.

Thiago Silva remains injured, with Alex uncertain to start on Sunday. Replacing the duo could be fourth-choice Zoumana Camara, with Sylvain Armand picking up a few niggles in Wednesday's cup win.

Lille coach Rudi Garcia is split between his usual 4-3-3 formation or switching to 4-4-2 as was the case in the 3-1 win over amateurs Plabennec on Thursday.

Nolan Roux is expected to lead the line, with Dimitri Payet and Marvin Martin providing the ammunition behind him. Otherwise, there are no major injury woes for Garcia to mull over.

Salomon Kalou, Ryan Mendes, Mohamed Sissoko and Siaka Tiene are away at the Africa Cup of Nations.


  • Paris Saint-Germain can move top of Ligue 1 on goal difference with victory.
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic tops the Ligue 1 scoring charts on 20 league goals, two fewer than last season's joint-top scorers Olivier Giroud and Nene. However, he only has six at home this season.
  • Salvatore Sirigu has not conceded a league goal for PSG since the 2-1 defeat to Nice on Dec. 1 - a total of 686 minutes.
  • Lille sits in 10th place in Ligue 1 after a shock 2-0 home defeat against Nice.
  • Rudi Garcia's side has just one win in its last 10 league games on the road. It has two away wins in Ligue 1 all season.
  • Les Dogues have not won a league game away at the Parc des Princes since 1996.
  • Both Lille's Grand Stade Lille Metropole and PSG's Parc des Princes were shortlisted as the 10 venues for Euro 2016 on Friday.
