PSG shuffle their pack after losing 2-1 here to Man City a few days ago, making six changes. The big news is that Kylian Mbappe is out with a calf injury. Icardi starts up front. There are also six changes to Lens from their 2-1 win over Nimes last time out. Three of those changes are due to suspension.

Unfortunately for PSG, Lens look like they will be awkward opponents. Franck Haise’s fifth-placed side are having a phenomenal season and are unbeaten in their last 13 Ligue 1 games, the league’s longest ongoing run and the joint-longest by a newly promoted side this century. With Europe still a dream for them, the team from Pas-de-Calais would love to derail PSG’s title defence.
Ligue 1’s intriguing three-way title race continues and PSG are still very much in the mix. The defending champions are just one point behind leaders Lille after winning their last three league games, and are looking to make it four in a row for the first time under Mauricio Pochettino. With just four games to go and a crucial Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City coming up next week, they can’t afford any more slip-ups.
