Paris Saint-Germain will be hoping to close out the year with a win against Strasbourg in Ligue 1 on Wednesday.

The reigning French champions were held to a goalless stalemate by leaders Lille at the weekend. That result came just a week after the 1-0 home loss to Lyon, who are a point ahead of the Parisiens.

After losing both their opening games, Thomas Tuchel's side won the next eight on the trot, but have lost steam once again, winning only twice from their last six encounters.

Despite their inconsistent form, PSG may feel confident after seeing Strasbourg mired in struggles of their own, languishing 17th in the table and just two points above the relegation zone.

Centre-back Presnel Kimpembe is on four yellow cards and risks suspension from the trip to St-Etienne in the next game if he's booked again this week.

Lebo Mothiba and Matz Sels are the only long-term injuries for Strasbourg, who otherwise have a clean bill of health.
