When PSG face Bordeaux on Saturday, in their Ligue 1 clash, they’ll be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Javier Pastore.
The current Ligue 1 holders have started their title defence in fine fashion, winning all four of their games so far without conceding a goal.
They’ll face Bordeaux without two of their big names, with Pastore still recovering and Ibrahimovic rested ahead of UCL clash with Malmo.
“Ibra could play tomorrow, but he won’t. He won’t be in the squad,” Blanc revealed.
“We will give him some more time to get ready for the Champions League game against Malmo. That’s one of the advantages of having a substantial squad.
“His injury isn’t serious, but it is painful and that means he needs to rest.
“Pastore will not be with the group tomorrow. He has trained well [over the international break] and he has needed it.
“He had two small injuries around the calf. He needs to work and to complete the sessions he is missing.
