Paris Saint-Germain is a professional football club based in Paris, France. They compete in Ligue 1, the top division of French football. The club is known to be one of the greatest clubs in France, due to its achievements and glories.
PSG will hope to make it eight wins out of eight in the 2021-22 Ligue 1 season when they travel to the Roazhon Park to take on Rennes on Sunday lunchtime.
Both sides claimed wins in their midweek European fixtures, with Bruno Genesio's side overcoming Vitesse in the Conference League while PSG saw off Manchester City in the Champions League.
PSG gleaned revenge for last year's semi-final exit after maintaining their perfect record in Ligue 1 with a straightforward 2-0 win over Montpellier HSC - a result which saw them move onto 24 points from a possible 24 as they extended their lead at the summit to nine points.
Meanwhile, ahead of their crucial key fixtures coming up, Pochettino will be without 3 players due to injury, and I will thus be listing the affected players in this article.
1. Sergio Ramos
The Spanish defender is yet to make his debut for the Parisian club, as he continues to battle a calf problem, and it is unclear when the experienced center-back will be available to feature.
2. Juan Bernat
Juan Bernat has not been featured since last September due to a serious knee injury, and although the left-back is closing in on a return, this weekend's match will come too soon.
Both defenders will most likely not be fit to return before the international break, although it is simply a case of building up fitness for the latter following his return to training.
3. Lionel Messi
Messi recovered rapidly from a knee problem in time to start against Man City, but with Angel Di Maria back fresh following a European ban, Pochettino may see this as an ideal opportunity to rest the ex-Barcelona man so as not to risk any further layoffs.
