Istanbul Basaksehir
The last thing that Istanbul Basaksehir needed before a showdown with PSG was more injury concerns, but unfortunately for Buruk, the Turkish outfit are heavily depleted for Wednesday's fixture.

The Super Lig champions could be without a recognised right-back following an injury to Ugur Ucar, Junior Caicara out for the season and 18-year-old Muhammed Sarikaya not in Istanbul Basaksehir's Champions League squad.

Former Premier League players Nacer Chadli, Rafael and Martin Skrtel have all suffered with injury problems as of late, with the latter two lasting just 45 minutes against Antalyaspor before being taken off.
Istanbul Basaksehir possible starting lineup:
Gunok; Rafael, Ponck, Epureanu, Bolingoli; Visca, Kahveci, Topal, Giuliano; Ba, Crivelli

PSG have had bad luck of their own on the injury front as Thilo Kehrer and Juan Bernat are still sidelined, while Idrissa Gueye is out with the hamstring problem he sustained against United.

Leandro Paredes, Marco Verratti, Julian Draxler and Mauro Icardi also occupy spots in the medical room, but Angel Di Maria and Layvin Kurzawa are set to return to the fold after missing the win over Dijon through suspension.

Mbappe will almost certainly return to the first XI for this one, with Keylor Navas, Presnel Kimpembe and Alessandro Florenzi also expected to start after being named amongst the substitutes at the weekend.
Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:
Navas; Florenzi, Diallo, Kimpembe, Kurzawa; Marquinhos, Herrera, Rafinha; Di Maria, Mbappe, Neymar
Paris Saint-Germain Champions League form: L

Prediction: Istanbul Basaksehir 0-3 Paris Saint-Germain
