Indications have shown that PSG are likely to have Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. back for the ligue1 action against Lens.
Although Lens are also on fire, Paris Saint-Germain is expected to wrap up the Ligue 1 Uber Eats title with victory. The clash will hold at the Parc des Princes on Saturday.
This means that the two talismans are ready to celebrate the likely title party.
Marseille had postponed PSG’s party after they beat FC Nantes late in their last fixture.
Once the Paris club win, they would claim their record-equaling 10th. They had defeated Anger SCO on Wednesday. PSG recorded the victory courtesy of goals from Kylian Mbappé, Sergio Ramos, and Marquinhos.
Either Marseille will or lose the weekend fixture, the Paris club will claim the title if they beat Lens as expected.
Speaking of the weekend clash, PSG manager Mauricio Ponchettino said winning the title as soon as possible is the best possible outcome.
While noting that it was hard to get the maximum points against Angers, former Spurs coach noted that they had a good game and took the three points.
It is not expected to be a walk in the park for PSG, but Poch said he will be satisfied with a win.
They both expected to join Mbappé in the final third.
Meanwhile, regulars Marco Verratti and Presnel Kimpembe are both struggling with knee injuries. They could be replaced by Ramos and Gum once again.
Mauro Icardi, who has been restricted to few minutes of action is out with a thigh strain. Others on the lengthy injury list include Leandro Paredes (groin), Ander Herrera (thigh), Abdou Diallo (groin), Layvin Kurzawa (calf), and Julian Draxler (knee).
Lens are coming on the back of 2-0 win over Montpellier Hérault SC, their eight on the bounce.
Les Sang is seventh on the Ligue 1 table. They are aiming to feature in European football next season.
