PSG vs. Toulouse: Team News, Predicted Line-Ups, Live Stream, TV InfoChristophe Ena/Associated PressParis Saint-Germain will try to get their title campaign back on track this Saturday when they welcome Toulouse FC to the Parc des Princes. Victory could see the Parisian side go temporarily top of the league with Marseille and Lyon both scheduled to play on Sunday. Date: Saturday, February 20Time: 4 p. m.
Depending on the team Blanc picks for Saturday, Pastore could either play in the front three or in the midfield, but either way he will need to make sure he sees plenty of the ball and creates chances to punish Toulouse. Toulouse FCMichel Euler/Associated PressBen Yedder started the season like a house on fire, scoring six goals by October. Since then he has only found the net twice, and not in the league since November. If Toulouse are to find success this season and get out of trouble, finding Ben Yedder’s shooting boots is crucial.
GMT (5 p. CET)/11 a. ETVenue: Parc des Princes, ParisTV Info: beIN Sport (U. S. ), Canal+ (France)Live Stream: beIN Sport Connect (U. )During Tuesday’s Champions League draw with Chelsea, PSG showed that they can play a high-tempo style against one of Europe’s best teams. The problem Laurent Blanc has endured this season, is trying to get his side to play the same way in their domestic games. Recent league form has been less than inspiring. Losing 4-2 to Bastia after taking a two-goal lead was unthinkable for a team of PSG’s standing. Once can be forgiven, but for it to happen again, last weekend against Caen, shows that the side still has some internal issues. They may not have lost against Caen but giving up a two-goal lead with only a few minutes remaining, regardless of how many players they had on the pitch when they collapsed, is unforgivable.

PSG’s opponents, Toulouse, may have the same points as Caen this season, but their current form couldn’t be more contrasting. Le Tefece may have won two of their last three games, but they have lost four in a row on their travels.

Unable to decide on their best formation or how to rediscover the form of Wissam Ben Yedder, both are reasons why Toulouse are on the edge of the relegation zone. Over six years have passed since Toulouse last left Paris with all three points, but back then they were riding high in fifth. In their last six visits they haven’t even left with a single point.
