PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel could welcome back Marquinhos for his side's Ligue 1 match against Dijon on Saturday.

The club captain has missed the last few games though was named on the bench for the midweek Champions League loss against Manchester United. Julian Draxler, too, made his return from injury to feature on the bench.

Both will likely be called upon to start against Dijon.

Angel Di Maria and Layvin Kurzawa are suspended for the champions, which will mean wither Draxler or Pablo Sarabia taking the Argentine's sport, while Mitchell Bakker will come in at left-back.

Marco Verratti, Mauro Icardi, Juan Bernat, Thilo Kehrer, and Leandro Paredes are all out, with Idrissa Gueye also set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up a hamstring injury against Man Utd.

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are fit to play.
