Paris Saint-Germain, still smarting from their Champions League exit, continue their victory lap in Ligue 1 when they host Toulouse at the Parc des Princes this Sunday.

The Parisians have already secured their third consecutive league title, while their visitors sit comfortably mid-table, meaning both sides can enjoy a relaxed end to the season.

PSG’s squad has been hit by injuries, with Lucas Hernandez’s ACL tear the biggest blow. The Frenchman’s season is over, and his dream of representing France at Euro 2024 is shattered.

Other Parisians currently sidelined include Sergio Rico, Presnel Kimpembe, and Layvin Kurzawa. However, manager Mauricio Pochettino has no new worries after their midweek defeat and might make a few changes. Youngsters Manuel Ugarte and Bradley Barcola could get a chance to shine.

Kylian Mbappe, who recently announced his departure from the club, is unlikely to play the full game. Expect him to be subbed off early to a hero’s welcome from the home fans, but he’ll likely start this, his final home appearance for PSG.

Toulouse head to Paris after a fiery encounter with Montpellier last weekend. Both sides finished the match with ten men after red cards for their defenders. One of those red cards was for Rasmus Nicolaisen, who will miss this match through suspension.

Thankfully for Toulouse, Nicolaisen seems to be their only absentee. Youngster Kevin Keben is expected to slot straight into the backline to replace his suspended teammate.

Paris Saint-Germain probable lineup:

Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Skriniar, Mendes; Lee, Ugarte, Zaire-Emery; Asensio, Mbappe, Barcola

Toulouse pprobable lineup:

Restes; Desler, Keben, Costa, Diarra; Schmidt, Casseres Jr, Sierro; Aboukhlal, Dallinga, Gboho
