PSG vs Troyes: Time, TV channel and live stream for highlights, line-ups and latest Ligue 1 score
PSG will put their unbeaten record at stake on Saturday when they host ESTAC Troyes at the Parc des Princes on Matchday 13 of the Ligue 1 season.
Unbeaten in all 18 games since the start of the 2022/23 season under new coach Christophe Galtier, the Parisian club sit first but just two points clear of RC Lens.
PSG are currently in the middle of a busy period of the season with the World Cup coming up, but they haven’t let up so far. They beat Maccabi Haifa 7-2 in the Champions League. Unlike recent seasons, Galtier lets the club play with intensity and dynamism and Troyes has caught the eye thanks to his coach’s pre-match comments.
Although ESTAC Troyes are not one of the big names in Ligue 1, after beating AS Monaco 4-2 away earlier this season as well as drawing 1-1 at Stade Rennais, they will be anything but weak despite sinking 10 Men.
After three straight losses early in the 2022/23 season, Troyes has bounced back in eleventh place and lost just two of their next nine games, scoring in each of their last five. Galtier has already warned his own that they need a strong start to set the tone against a young opponent who is only gaining confidence.

PSG vs Troyes line-ups
Marco Verratti is back in the line-up after being sidelined through suspension mid-week. Although Danilo is still not fully fit from his injury, centre-back Presnel Kimpembe (hamstrings) will return after missing five Ligue 1 games. He could see Marquinhos.
Despite a crucial Champions League group stage final on Wednesday, Galtier is unlikely to give some of his veteran starters a breather unless they can end the game early.
Expect PSG to continue in the 4-3-3 formation they have been using for the last couple of games and Galtier celebrates as he believes this brings out the best in right-back Achraf Hakimi.
Expected PSG starting line-up (4-3-3, right to left): 99 – Gigi Donnarumma (TG) – 2 – Achraf Hakimi, 4 – Sergio Ramos, 3 – Presnel Kimpembe, 25 – Nuno Mendes – 18 – Renato Sanches, 6 – Marco Verratti, 17 – Vitinha – 30 – Lionel Messi, 10 – Neymar , 7-Kylian Mbappe
PSG substitutions (11): 1-Keylor Navas (TG), 16-Sergio Rico (TG), 14-Juan Bernat, 26-Nordi Mukiele, 31-El Chadaille Bitshiabu, 5-Marquinhos, 28-Carlos Soler, 33-Warren Zaire-Emery, 8- Fabian Ruiz, 19-Pablo Sarabia, 44-Hugo Ekitike
Troyes coach Bruno Irles, who once played for PSG, is without No.10 Florian Tardieu (foot), Lucien Agoume (thigh) and Jessy Moulin (shoulder). Ex-Manchester City player Marlos Moreno is not part of the squad but veteran centre-back Adil Rami is back and should fit in at the back.
Two former PSG youth products are likely to feature in the starting XI as 17-year-old winger Wilson Odobert and 20-year-old right-back Thierno Balde should be included.
Estimated starting line-up for ESTAC Troyes (5-4-1, right to left): 1-Mateusz Lis (GK) — 18-Thierno Balde, 2-Jackson Porozo, 23-Adil Rami, 4-Erik Palmer-Brown, 39-Yasser Larouci — 11-Rony Lopes, 6-Rominigue Kouame, 24-Xavier Chavalerin, 29-Wilson Odobert — 7-Mama Balde
ESTAC Troyes Substitutes (9): 30-Gauthier Gallon (GK), 17-Yoann Salmier, 12-Abdu Conte, 19-Andreas Bruus, 15-Ante Palaversa, 5-Tristan Dingome, 26-Papa Ndiaga Yade, 20-Renaud Ripart, 9-Ike Ugbo

PSG vs Troyes best bets, odds
The odds for this game are challenging given the strong tendency towards a one-sided PSG win. And with Troyes having one of the most leaky defenses in the league – they’ve conceded a goal in every game and are averaging two goals a game – another goal fest is quite possible.
More than 3.5 total goals is not attractive at -145, but an angle that could be playable: half with most goals. PSG will be motivated to start strong and quickly get the game out of reach as Wednesday’s Champions League clash is a must-win.
Given that Troyes tended to concede early goals against some of the better opponents they faced, a first-half lightning strike is likely. Picking the first half as the half with the most goals is a risky game, but if you think PSG will start strong and then roll out the rest of the way, it’s a bet that would pay well if it comes in .
- Choose: Highest scoring half (first half)
- Forecast: +180 (Caesars)
