PSG have kept just one clean sheet in their last five games.

The visitors did not score in their last two Ligue 1 away games.

Latest Performances in all competitions




A patchy start to the season sees Bordeaux come into Round 13 sitting in 16th place. They have picked up two wins in the league all season and have lost four times (D4). 

Although they have lost just one of their last seven games, four of these games have been drawn while only two were won. 

They beat Reims 3-2 in their last league outing to pull themselves slightly out of the relegation zone. But if they are to move completely out of the relegation fight, they have to find a way to beat this PSG side and pick up their first consecutive win in the league since May last year. 

Possible Bordeaux starting line-ups

Benoit Costil; Timothee Pembele, Laurent Koscielny, Stian Gregersen, Ricardo Mangas; Tom Lacoux, Otavio, Yacine Adli; Hwang Ui-Jo, Jimmy Briand, Javairo Dilrosun.


Paris Saint-Germain have enjoyed a good start to the Ligue 1 campaign having won ten of their opening 12 games. Their only loss this season came four games ago when Rennes beat them 2-0.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side managed to salvage a draw with RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday in what was an entertaining encounter that saw summer signing Georginio Wijnaldum score a brace and Gianluigi Donnarumma save a penalty.

The visitors will be desperate to move on from that draw and continue the dominance of the league where they are already leading with eight points. 

They head into this tie unbeaten in their last five competitive games and will fancy their chances of picking up another win here.

Meanwhile, Sergio Ramos remains sidelined since making his switch from Real Madrid. Presnel Kimpembe and Leandro Paredes are also struggling with their fitness at the moment and might not feature in this game while Lionel Messi has made progress with his recovery but is unlikely to be risked in this fixture.

Possible PSG starting line-ups

Gianluigi Donnarumma; Abdou Diallo, Thilo Kehrer, Marquinhos, Achraf Hakimi; Idrissa Gueye, Ander Herrera, Georginio Wijnaldum; Angel Di Maria, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe.
