Paris Saint-Germain will be without Edinson Cavani, Thiago Silva and Marco Verratti for its Ligue 1 visit to Dijon.

Layvin Kurzawa and Thiago Motta are also missing for Saturday's clash, as the leader looks to maintain its unbeaten start and move six points clear of champion Monaco.

Silva suffered an injury while on international duty with Brazil, while Cavani, who has scored 11 goals this season, has been given extra time to recover from his exploits for Uruguay in South American World Cup qualifying.

Kurzawa has a knee injury, Verratti has not regained fitness after pulling out of the Italy squad with an unspecified injury and Motta remains on the sidelines having struggled with a knee issue.

Better news for PSG comes with Javier Pastore being named in the squad following calf surgery.
