Paris Saint-Germain are away at French champions Lille OSC on Sunday with the hosts midtable and massively off the pace in terms of a title defense. Jocelyn Gourvennec's men are within reach of the European places but will need to improve if they are to hold on to that hope once the UEFA Champions League returns with Chelsea over two legs a tall order for LOSC. PSG have Real Madrid to worry about and Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to exploit Olympique de Marseille's failure to capitalize on their game in hand recently.

LOSC: Burak Yilmaz and Isaac Lihadji are Gourvennec's main absentees, but Hatem Ben Arfa could feature against his former club with Jonathan David and Timothy Weah having both faced challenging international breaks. Youngster Ugo Raghouber gets his first call-up to the senior squad.
PSG: Ander Herrera is an unexpected late absentee with left thigh pain. Otherwise, Sergio Ramos, Mauro Icardi, Neymar and Georginio Wijnaldum all miss out through injury while Idrissa Gueye and Abdou Diallo remain on Africa Cup of Nations duty. Youngsters Xavi Simons and Edouard Michut are once again involved.
LOSC: It has been a far from ideal title defense for Lille so far and it will not get any easier against PSG. However, they are not far off the European places and their UCL showing has already guaranteed a healthy financial return if they can remain in the hunt for at least UEFA Europa League soccer.
PSG: So much is riding on Real that this clash with the champions in title is not as big as it would usually be. LOSC's quality should give Les Parisiens the sort of workout that they need pre-Europe, but Les Dogues are not the force they were under Christophe Galtier either.
A tight one with PSG sneaking a win. Kylian Mbappe should be fit enough to start and could hold the key as is often the case in these sorts of games. If he turns it on, that should be enough. Ben Arfa will want to prove a point against his former employers, though. Pick: LOSC 1, PSG 2.
