Paris Saint-Germain play out the last four of their remaining Ligue 1 fixtures as champions, starting with a trip to Strasbourg on Friday night.

Mauricio Pochettino’s future at the club might be as far from certain as you can possibly get, but his men made sure of the title as they drew 1-1 with Lens last time out. They come into this weekend having also won five on the spin prior to that title-winning point – including a Classique victory over Marseille.

A tough test awaits them on Friday against a Strasbourg side hoping to qualify for European football this term. Here’s how Poch could set his side up.

GK: Gianluigi Donnarumma – Can hope to be reinstated between the sticks having been sat on the bench for PSG‘s two previous Ligue 1 outings.

CB: Marquinhos – Should be set to skipper the side for the 28th time in Ligue 1 this campaign.

CB: Sergio RamosA very stop-start season (more stop than start) has seen the Spaniard start just five league games, although he could be set for a third consecutive berth here.

CB: Presnel Kimpembe – Having deployed a three-man defence in the last two, Pochettino could opt to retain the system, which would see Kimpembe start on the left once again.

RWB: Achraf Hakimi – Hasn’t lit things up as he was doing so consistently earlier in the season, but the Moroccan is an absolute machine up and down the right flank and will surely feature again here.

CM: Danilo – Idirssa Gueye is out through suspension while Leandro Paredes will continue to nurse an injury, so Danilo should be set to play in midfield.

CM: Marco Verratti – Partnering the burly Portuguese will be the little Italian magician, who has been hitting some excellent form of late.

LWB: Nuno Mendes – Such an exciting prospect, Mendes has shown his dangerous qualities and increasingly solid defensive capabilities throughout what has been a hugely impressive season.

RF: Lionel Messi – With two goals and six assists in his last eight Ligue 1 games, Messi is in a strong vein of form although is still failing to hit previous heights.

ST: Kylian MbappeContinuously climbing to new heights is Mbappe, who boasts 56 goal involvements (35 goals and 21 assists) in 51 appearances for club and country since the start of the campaign.

LF: NeymarHas suddenly exploded into life in recent weeks, coming into this away trip with seven goals and three assists in his previous seven outings behind him.
