Paris Saint-Germain are looking for their fifth win from their opening six games when they face Nantes on Saturday.
Christophe Galtier has made a mightily impressive start to life in the French capital, but the work is only just beginning.
They face a Nantes side who have proven a tough matchup in recent seasons and are competing in Europe themselves.
Here’s who Galtier could select.
GK: Keylor Navas – Now firmly PSG’s backup stopper, Costa Rica legend Navas failed to seal a loan move to Napoli last month, but should come in here to give Gianluigi Donnarumma a night off.
CB: Nordi Mukiele – The summer signing has primarily been used at wing-back by Galtier this season, but could revert to centre-back as part of a backline shuffle.
CB: Marquinhos – The club captain is now into his tenth season with PSG, a true stalwart.
CB: Sergio Ramos – Presnel Kimpembe’s injury could force Ramos to left centre-back, with Mukiele reverting to the Spaniard’s most comfortable area instead.
RWB: Achraf Hakimi – After spending much of last season in a back four, Hakimi is flying once again at wing-back.
CM: Vitinha – The diminutive Portuguese has looked impressive early on in his PSG career following his transfer from Porto.
CM: Renato Sanches – While he hasn’t quite made the same waves as his compatriot, Sanches could still yet prove to be a shrewd bit of business.
LWB: Juan Bernat – Nuno Mendes probably deserves a night off, particularly as Hakimi was rotated out of the lineup on the other flank in midweek.
RF: Lionel Messi – The legendary Argentine is back to his best and is treating Ligue 1 like a playground this term.
CF: Kylian Mbappe – Mbappe’s ongoing attitude concerns – and newly raised controversies with the Pogba family – haven’t derailed PSG’s opening to the season.
LF: Neymar – Is the Brazilian one of the best players in the world again or is he just healthy? We probably won’t know for sure until around February.
