Once again, Dinamo Zagreb have been given a poor draw and are well on their way to getting kicked out of Europe. Following their comfortable loss to Dynamo Kiev in the last round, they're probably not even playing for a Europa League spot anymore. They're just playing for pride. Avoiding a thrashing at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain would be a decent result on Wednesday.
PSG are top of the table in France for the first time this season, and even though they fell to Porto in the last round, there's no reason to expect them to fail to achieve victory in this fixture. Crazier things have happened than Dinamo getting a result -- Nordsjaelland drew Juventus on Tuesday, after all -- but the visitors will be confident about winning.
Dinamo Zagreb and suspensions
Out: Arijan Ademi (toe), Ivan Tomečak (pubic bone).
Paris Saint-Germain injuries and suspensions
Out: Mamadou Sakho (thigh), Nenê (broken cheekbone), Clément Chantôme (thigh), Ezequiel Lavezzi (thigh), Thiago Motta (back), Diego Lugano (knee),
It's a good thing PSG have more depth than any team would know what to do with, because they're going to need it without two central defenders and two wingers.
