Ligue 1 action for the weekend begins on Friday night as perennial winners PSG travel to Patrick Vieira’s Strasbourg, who will be looking to cut the gap on the top six to two points.

Le Racing were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened Clermont last Sunday, although this point did extend their unbeaten run to eight games in all competitions.

PSG dropped rare points at home to Brest last time out, with the league leaders squandering a two goal lead to draw 2-2 at the Parc des Princes.

Team News

 Vieira has a handful of absentees for this league encounter, with Guinea international Saidou Sow still unavailable after helping his nation qualify for the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Long-term injuries to Karol Fila and Lebo Mothiba will ensure no participation in this fixture for the duo, while Ismael Doukoure and former PSG striker Kevin Gameiro are also likely to miss out with respective ankle and hamstring problems.

There is also a lengthy list of absentees for Luis Enrique to contend with, particularly in the treatment room, with the likes of Nuno Mendes and Milan Skriniar expected to miss this fixture through injury.

Presnel Kimpembe continues to recover from an Achilles problem and young winger Bradley Barcola is suspended after his sending off against Brest.

International duty will rule out South Korean Kang-In Lee, while it is uncertain whether Achraf Hakimi will return in time for selection after his missed penalty contributed to Morocco’s shock AFCON elimination at the hands of South Africa.

Match Odds

 PSG are the favourites at 4/9, while Strasbourg can be backed at 6/1 and the draw is priced at 7/2.

In the anytime scorer market, Kylian Mbappe is the shortest price at 11/5.

PSG to win and Both Teams to Score @ 15/8

Strasbourg may be unbeaten in six Ligue 1 games, but it will be a tall order to grab anything against a Paris side with just one league defeat all season.

The league leaders have picked up 13 league victories so far this campaign, scoring 46 goals in the process which is 10 more than any other side in the division.

However, injuries in defence has left Les Parisiens susceptible at the back, with the French giants keeping just one clean sheet in their last five league games.

This may offer some hope to Strasbourg to grab a consolation goal, but expect PSG to hold on for the victory.

Randal Kolo Muani to score anytime @ 7/4

The goalscorer market predictably has French star Mbappe as the favourite to grab a goal in this fixture, but strike partner Randal Kolo Muani could be a decent shout to get on the scoresheet.

The Frenchman has scored three goals in his last three games in all competitions and, at 7/4, could be the better bet to grab his sixth league strike of the season.
