Paris Saint-Germain vs Olympique de Marseille: Preview
Paris: Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti could hand David Beckham a first start in PSG colours, after the ex-England captain came off the bench for a starring cameo against Olympique de Marseille on Sunday.
The 37-year-old could replace the suspended Marco Verratti in the middle of the park, alongside either Blaise Matuidi or Clement Chantome, as Ancelotti seeks to shuffle his pack slightly for the Coupe de France clash.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic could also be rested, in favour of Kevin Gameiro, though otherwise it is likely to be largely unchanged from the side that beat Elie Baup`s men just two days ago.
For Marseille, the visitors welcome back Jordan Ayew from suspension, after the Ghana international missed Sunday`s knee clash. Elder brother Andre is a doubt after picking up a knock at Parc des Princes, and could well be replaced by the younger sibling.
Jeremy Morel is also uncertain to play, leaving Marseille short at left-back, with 18-year-old Baptiste Aloe ready to step in should the former Lorient player fail to recover in time.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN: Sirigu, Van der Wiel, Armand, Alex, Maxwell, Beckham, Matuidi, Menez, Pastore Lavezzi, Ibrahimovic
OLYMPIQUE DE MARSEILL: Mandanda Fanni, N`Koulou, Lucas Mendes, Morel Barton, Romao Kadir, Valbuena, Ayew Gignac
