Rennes Team News
Rennes are still missing injured pair Jeremy Doku (thigh) and new recruit Lovro Majer (hip), while Jeremy Gelin is sidelined for the rest of the season after rupturing his ACL.
The hosts have no new injury concerns following Thursday’s success – Bade’s dismissal having no bearing on Ligue 1 – and the majority of the lineup that began at the GelreDome should start again here.
Sulemana will almost certainly replace fellow adolescent Loum Tchaouna on the left side, while Birger Meling could replace Adrien Truffert at left-back.
PSG Team News
PSG defenders Sergio Ramos and Juan Bernat are unlikely to return before the international break, though the latter’s return to training will just be a mater of building up fitness.
Messi returned from a knee injury in time to play against Man City, but with Angel Di Maria back in action after serving a European suspension, Pochettino may see this as an excellent opportunity to rest the ex-Barcelona midfielder.
Nuno Mendes was given the nod at left-back in the Champions League, so Abdou Diallo will want to return there, while Leandro Paredes might return in midfield if Ander Herrera is given a rest.
Rennes XI: Gomis; Traore, Bade, Aguerd, Meling; Bourigeaud, Santamaria, Tait; Laborde, Guirassy, Sulemana
Paris Saint-Germain XI: Navas; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Verratti, Gueye, Paredes; Di Maria, Mbappe, Neymar
