Ligue 1 Preview: Paris Saint-Germain-Nancy

The Ligue 1 leader has been inconsistent of late, but with challengers Lyon and Marseille facing each other on Sunday, PSG can pull further clear with a win on Saturday.

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN

Sirigu
Van der Wiel, Alex, Thiago Silva, Maxwell
Lucas Moura, Verratti, Matuidi, Pastore
Lavezzi, Ibrahimovic
NANCY

Gregorini
Sami, Puygrenier, Sane
Karaboue, Ayasse, Sane, Jebbour
M'Bile, Bakar
Efoulou

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti will welcome back Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marco Verratti after they were both suspended for the club's 1-1 draw with Valencia in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Christophe Jallet was forced off, meaning Gregory van der Wiel is likely to continue at right back. Thiago Motta, meanwhile, is set to make way for Verratti. David Beckham could also be handed a start, depending on whether Ancelotti opts for a slight rotation of players.

Nancy boss Patrick Gabriel is without various players through injury or suspension as they seek to spring a shock at the Parc des Princes.

Florian Zitte is suspended, meaning Paul Alo'o Efoulou will revert to the lead striker role, as Romain Grange and Vincent Muratori both miss out through injury.
