Due to a nearly full-strength roster of players, almost everyone can be taken into consideration. Brest coach Éric Roy only has one fitness concern. Dead Leg’s Brendan Chardonnet is out of commission.

Christophe Galtier, the PSG manager, is presently dealing with fewer team options. The following players are unable to participate Achraf Hakimi (hamstring injury), Renato Sanches (hamstring injury), Presnel Kimpembe (Achilles tendon rupture), and Neymar (ankle surgery).
Les Rouge-et-Bleu are expected to start Gianluigi Donnarumma, Nordi Mukiele, Marquinhos, Sergio Ramos, Nuno Mendes, Fabian Ruiz, Danilo Pereira, Marco Verratti, Vtinha, Lionel Messi, and Kylian Mbappe in a 4-3-1-2 formation.
Brest should be able to score in this match against this Paris Saint-Germain squad, but even one goal might not stop them from giving up two at the other end.
