Ligue 1 leaders PSG travel to the Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg) stadium this Saturday as they look to continue their impressive run of form that have seen them top the league with 13 points after 27 games.
The Paris club, who will be looking to make it three wins in three Ligue 1 games go into the encounter as clear favorites as they face a Strasbourg side who have failed to win in their last three league games.
The host who sit in 10th place—30 points shy of the visitors—will be hoping to cause a major upset as they look to record their first win since their 3-nil defeat of Reims on February 09.
Laurey Thierry will be without Anthony Caci and Banjamin Corgnet who is out with a muscle injury.
With a return leg against Borrusia Dortmund on the card this week, PSG may decide to rest Brazilain forward Neymar Jnr who sustained an injury over the week.
Colin Dagba remains sidelined with a knee injury for the home side while captain Thiago Silva, Ander Herrera, Daillo, all miss out with thigh injuries.

Strasbourg who are winless in the league in three matches (D2, L1) head into the match ill prepared to face a rampant PSG side who despite their off-filed issues continue to score goals for fun.
The home team have endured a patchy run of form recently that have seen them pick up just 11 points from the last 24 available in the league. In this period, they did pick up an impressive away win over Reims though.
Over the last eight top-flight games, the away side have kept three clean sheets, scoring ten times in the process.
PSG continue to bang in the goals this season, with their midweek win over Lyon making it the 7th match in nine that they have scored 4 plus goals in a single game so expect the away side to score the goals in this contest.
The Parisians in those eight matches have scored 3+ goals, which six of those matches seeing them net 2+ goals in the first 45 minutes.
At the other end of the pitch however, the Parisians have been porous, conceding five in their last six games at the Parc De Prince. They have on average conceded 2.0 goals in four of those games.
However, in their last eight games in the league, they have kept seven first half cleans sheets.
