Thiago Motta    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Motta will not play in Wednesday's Champions League match against Barcelona because of a hamstring injury, Goal.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

PSG will be missing a few key pieces in a very tough matchup, as they trail Barcelona 3-1 on aggregate heading to Camp Nou.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic is available for Wednesday's Champions League match against Barcelona after being suspended for the first leg.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahimovic is currently serving a three-match domestic ban for referee criticism, but he'll be available for Wednesday's match while trying to pull off the near-impossible, as Barcelona lead 3-1 on aggregate.
Clinton N'Jie    F    Lyon
N'Jie recorded a 24th minute goal in Lyon's 2-2 draw with Saint Etienne on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

N'Jie has really blossomed in recent months and now constitutes one-third of an exciting Lyon attacking trio that also includes Alex Lacazette and Nabil Fekir. Overall, the 21-year-old N'Jie boasts five goals and six assists through just 13 league starts and he should be vital as Lyon pushes for the French title to close this season.
Edinson Cavani    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Cavani scored a penalty kick in PSG's 3-1 win against Nice over the weekend.

Fantasy Analysis

Cavani's record of nine goals through 29 Ligue 1 matches is a bit disappointing, but across all 38 appearances he's made for PSG this season, the Uruguayan has registered a much better tally of 22 goals. Six of those scores have come in the Champions League and Tuesday's match at Barcelona represents an occasion when his absolute best will be required for Paris Saint-Germain.
Javier Pastore    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Pastore supplied a pair of goals to lead Paris Saint-Germain to a 3-1 victory at Nice on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Pastore's seven assists this season lead PSG, but the Argentine brought his shooting boots Saturday, scoring just before and shortly after half-time. In doing so, Pastore staked his claim to start in the Parisian's midweek Champions League tie at Barcelona on Tuesday.
Thiago Silva    D    Paris Saint-Germain
Silva has been withdrawn from the squad to face Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday because of a thigh injury.

Fantasy Analysis

Silva picked up in the injury in the 21st minute of last week's first leg, and while he was initially included in the squad despite missing Saturday's Ligue 1 match against Nice, he simply could not recover in time.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic's four-match ban for referee abuse has been reduced to three, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahmovic's absence is obviously a huge blow for PSG, as he is third in Ligue 1 with 17 goals. He also missed out on PSG's Champions League match against Barcelona after picking up a red card against Chelsea in the Round of 16. Ibrahimovic has dropped hints recently that his time in France may be coming to an end, and he will likely be a popular transfer rumor name this summer.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic has been suspended four games for criticizing a referee last month, the Associated Press reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ibrahimovic's comments also included some disparaging remarks about all French referees, while stating that the country didn't deserve PSG to even be in the country. It's a harsh penalty and comes as PSG continue to battle for another title.
David Luiz    D    Paris Saint-Germain
Luiz has been ruled out for at least four weeks after suffering a thigh injury during Sunday's win over Marseille, Sky Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The injury comes at a terrible time for PSG, as Luiz will miss both legs of the Champions League quarterfinal tie with Barcelona, as well as the French Cup final and league cup semifinal. He was instrumental in taking down Chelsea in the Round of 16 and will leave a big hole in the center of defense alongside Thiago Silva.
Marquinhos    D    Paris Saint-Germain
Marquinhos signed a one-year contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The deal theoretically keeps the Brazilian in Paris through the 2018-19 season, though he's been the subject of a plethora of transfer rumors, so it's possible the extension only got rid of some kind of buyout clause, allowing PSG to maximize any fee.
