Team News

PSG made wholesale changes for their trip to Montpellier, but Tuchel will certainly revert to his regular 4-3-3 and welcome several first-team stars back to the fold on Tuesday.

Mbappe was named on the bench and Neymar did not feature at all on Saturday, but both men are sure to come back for this one, as will Marco Verratti, who was also given the night off against La Paillade.

Dagba's first goal for the club is unlikely to see him retain his place at right-back over Alessandro Florenzi, with Marquinhos, Danilo Pereira and Paredes all set to return to the first XI.

However, Pablo Sarabia is expected to remain sidelined with a muscle problem until the end of the month, while Julian Draxler and Mauro Icardi are both fitness doubts.
Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:
Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Pereira, Paredes, Verratti; Di Maria, Mbappe, Neymar
Paris Saint-Germain Champions League form: LWLWW
Paris Saint-Germain form (all competitions): WLWDWW

As for the visitors, Martin Skrtel is banned for this one after picking up his third booking of the group stage in the defeat to Leipzig.

With Alexandru Epureanu out with a muscular problem, and Ravil Tagir not eligible, Mahmut Tekdemir may be forced to deputise in the heart of defence alongside Ponck, who scored an own goal at the weekend.

Edin Visca was forced to miss the draw with Yeni Malatyaspor after being forced off against Leipzig, but the 30-year-old is expected to be fine for the trip to the French capital.
Istanbul Basaksehir possible starting lineup:
Gunok; Rafael, Ponck, Tekdemir, Kaldirim; Kahveci, Ozcan; Visca, Giuliano, Chadli; Ba
Istanbul Basaksehir Champions League form: LLWLL
Istanbul Basaksehir form (all competitions): LLLDLD

Prediction: Paris Saint-Germain 3-0 Istanbul Basaksehir
