The Argentine legend has stepped up his game this season and is a constant outlet for goal-scoring opportunities for PSG. His ability to drive forward with the ball and also finish off opportunities makes him a difficult player to pin down. Messi’s technical ability will be unlike anything Ajaccio will have faced in the French second division, and they will need to be on their toes and deny him any sort of space. Mbappe will be expected to lead the line, leaving Messi to act as the number 10. With a midfield trio likely to protect his rear, the Argentine wizard will have the freedom to focus on offensive actions and make a difference in front of the goal.
The Brazilian was the hero last time around versus Marseille and will be missing as he will be in court, making his case against allegations of corruption following his move from Santos to Barcelona. Ramos, meanwhile, is serving his suspension following the sending-off against Reims two weeks ago. Nuno Mendes is nursing a hamstring injury, while Renato Sanches is recovering from a knock. To add to PSG’s woes, the centre-back duo of Presnel Kimpembe and Danilo Pereira will both miss out thanks to thigh injuries.
Ajaccio have not beaten PSG since winning at the Parc des Princes in 2006. A clean sheet on the night will see PSG make it five shutouts in a row away from home in Ligue 1 for the first time since 2016. Player to Watch Lionel Messi PSG’s creator in Chief.

Romain Hamouma (meniscus), Yoann Touzghar (ankle) and Qazim Laci (hamstring) all remain out of contention, and it remains to be seen if centre-back Fernand Mayembo will be fit to play a part against the champions. Substitute Youcef Belaili weaved his way in and out of challenges before El Idrissy's equaliser against Troyes and is pushing to displace 37-year-old Riad Nouri, who missed a first-half penalty last weekend. Meanwhile, PSG attacker Neymar is currently involved in active court proceedings, refuting allegations of corruption and fraud relating to his move from Santos to Barcelona, but the Brazilian is suspended for this game in any case due to an accumulation of bookings.
This limits Galtier’s options at the back, and he could be forced to deploy Nordi Mukiele alongside Marquinhos. The absence of certain players could force Galtier to shift to a 4-3-1-2 formation for the game. Gianluigi Donnarumma is certain to start in goal behind the back four of Achraf Hakimi, Nordi Mukiele, Marquinhos and Juan Bernat. ðŸ†™âš½ï¸ Back to session for our Parisians ðŸŸ¥ðŸŸ¦#ACAPSG pic.
Prior to being the subject of boos at the Ballon d'Or awards over his reported desire to leave the club, Mbappe laid off Neymar for the Brazilian to poke home the winner off the post in first-half injury time, and Marseille's hopes of a fightback were extinguished following Samuel Gigot's straight red card. After spending a week furiously denying claims of Mbappe's unhappiness and an alleged smear campaign against the striker, Galtier and co got the job done in Paris to open up a three-point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table, and they remain unbeaten after 11 domestic matches. While it was a far from spectacular Classique success, PSG ended a run of three consecutive draws last weekend and unsurprisingly travel to Ajaccio boasting the league's best attacking and defensive records away from home, scoring 19 and conceding just one on rival turf so far this term.
twitter. com/fO1JkYKOd7 — AC Ajaccio (@ACAjaccio) October 18, 2022 Ismael Diallo and Cyrille Bayala will both return from suspension and will immediately be considered for a spot in the playing XI. The duo are key players for the French minnows, and their return will be a boon for Olivier Pantaloni. Romain Hamouma, Yoann Touzghar and Qazim Laci are all out injured, while Fernand Mayembo is a 50-50 to feature. Ajaccio have an otherwise fully fit squad to choose from and will hope to surprise a similarly injury-hit PSG side. Ajaccio are likely to set up in a 4-4-2 formation with Benjamin Leroy in goal. He will be protected by the back four of Mohamed Youssouf, Oumar Gonzalez, Cedric Avinel and Ismael Diallo.
Vincent Marchetti and Mathieu Coutadeur will form the backbone of the midfield, giving the duo of Cyrille Bayala and Youcef Belaili the freedom to push forward. Mounaim El Idrissy and Bevic Moussiti-Oko will lead the attack up front. The duo will look to take advantage of PSG’s missing centre-backs and maybe spring a surprise or two. Probable Lineup (4-4-2):Â Leroy; Youssouf, Gonzalez, Avinel, Diallo; Bayala, Marchetti, Coutadeur, Belaili; El Idrissy, Moussiti-Oko Paris Saint-Germain The French champions will be without Neymar and Sergio Ramos for the game.
Â Ajaccio have scored just eight goals in their opening ten games in Ligue 1. This is the lowest of any side in the current French top flight. PSG have conceded just five goals in Ligue 1 this season, making them the meanest defence in the French top division. Kylian Mbappe has scored eight goals in Ligue 1 so far this season, as many as the whole Ajaccio side put together. Neymar, meanwhile, is one better with nine goals.
com/iO2ix3VhYy — Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) October 19, 2022 Marco Verratti is one booking away from a suspension but is likely to be included in the starting XI. He is likely to be accompanied by Vitinha and Fabian Ruiz. The trio should provide a stable anchor in the middle of the park, protecting the PSG rearguard. With Neymar out, Pablo Sarabia is likely to partner with Kylian Mbappe upfront. Argentine playmaker Lionel Messi appears set to don the role of the number 10 and should act as the chief creator of opportunities on the night. Probable Lineup (4-3-1-2):Â Donnaruma; Hakimi, Mukiele, Marquinhos, Bernat; Vitinha, Verratti, Ruiz; Messi; Sarabia, Mbappe Key Stats PSG have found the back of the net 29 times in their first ten Ligue 1 games, making them the most prolific top-flight team in the league.
