Team News

  • PSG are without a number of first-team players ahead of the visit of Ajaccio.
  • Nene and Sylvain Armand both have calf problems, and Gregory van der Wiel also misses out.
  • Mohamed Sissoko is on African Cup of Nations duty with Mali, while Siaka Tiene has joined up with the Ivory Coast squad.
  • Ajaccio will be without Ricardo Faty for a month, after the midfielder underwent surgery on an ankle injury.
  • David Oberhauser has a knee problem, and Damien Tiberi is unavailable due to a groin complaint.
  • Carl Medjani and Mehdi Mostefa are at the African Cup of Nations with Algeria, Fousseni Diawara and Sigamary Diarra are both with the Malian squad and Chahir Belghazouani has joined up with Morocco.

Prediction

  • New Ajaccio boss Albert Emon takes his side to league leaders Paris Saint-Germain on the back of a shock defeat to third tier side FC Rouen in the Coupe De France.
  • The Corsicans sacked Alex Dupont after a poor run of form before the winter break, and they will be hoping for better fortunes under the former Nice, Marseille and Cannes manager.
  • However they face a difficult challenge on Friday, as they take on a PSG side that has been in sparkling form in recent times. The capital club should be confident of victory despite only just edging past part-timers Arras at the weekend.
  • Expect Zlatan Ibrahimovic to be the focal point of attack, the Swede has netted 18 times in the league this term and will expect to add to his tally against an Ajaccio side that has won just twice away from home.
  • The islanders will hope that the experienced Emon can turn their season around, but it is unlikely that he will get off to a flying start at the Parc Des Princes, and PSG should run out comfortable winners.
