Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are looking to end the season on a high when they host Metz at the Parc des Princes on Sunday.
A win in this game will take the French champions to 86 points in the Ligue1 table. Meanwhile, their opponents, Les Grenats, are certainly doomed to finish in the last three. However, they will be able to avoid automatic relegation if they manage to collect maximum points against the Parisian giants.

Ligue 1 2021-22 Paris Saint-Germain vs Metz: Team News, Injury Update
Mauro Icardi and Julian Draxler have completed their recovery and are expected to return to training this week. That the duo will play this weekend is highly doubtful, however, as Mauricio Pochettino sees no reason to risk them. Leandro Paredes is still struggling with groin pain. Now that Abdou Diallo has regained full fitness, he will look to squeeze his way into the starting XI. Keylor Navas and Angel Di Maria are also expected to start here, despite reports they will be leaving in the summer. Neymar and Presnel Kimpembe are expected to return after serving their bans. Idrissa Gueye reportedly missed the previous game because he was unwilling to wear matchday shirts out of solidarity with the LGBTQ+ cause and he could be recalled here.
Metz will be without his star striker Nicolas de Preville against PSG as he serves his ban for piling up yellow cards. Ibrahima Niane is expected to miss this game due to a dispute with the club, so Louis Mafouta could get the start. The trio of Fabien Centonze, Habib Maiga and Ibrahim Amadou will also not be available for the last game of the season.
