The reigning champions welcome Les Merlus to the Parc des Princes on Friday as they look to respond to their 3-2 defeat to Girondins de Bordeaux last weekend and return to winning ways in the French top flight.

However, Lorient, who eased their relegation concerns with a tightly-fought 2-1 victory over Stade Malherbe Caen last weekend, will be boosted by news of PSG’s defensive crisis.

David Luiz is suspended for the match and will not be present, while Marquinhos-who sat out the match against Bordeaux due to fatigue-is absent through injury.

“I think that Luiz and Marquinhos will be returning in ten days,” said Blanc on Thursday, as quoted by L’Equipe.

Additionally, Cote d’Ivoire right-back Serge Aurier remains a long-term absentee and is also ruled out.

Midfielder Yohan Cabaye will miss out having injured himself again after coming on as a substitute against Bordeaux, while Lucas Moura is not yet ready for a return.
