Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss PSG's league match against Ajaccio on Sunday after failing to recover from a minor foot injury.
Ibrahimovic sustained the knock in last week's opening league match against Lorient, meaning he also missed his country's 3-0 midweek defeat by Brazil.
PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti had earlier said he would not be rushed into a decision on whether to start the striker.
"He'll train today and after we'll take a decision," Ancelotti said. "The player is confident in his capability to play but I want to be sure that there'll be no problem. So we'll wait a little."
Also missing the trip to Corsica will be Brazilian defender Thiago Silva, who has a three-day rest period after playing seven games in three weeks at the recently-concluded Olympics and including the friendly against Sweden.
Ancelotti added that the club wanted to recruit a French right back after Anthony Reveillere's planned transfer from Lyon fell through because of medical reasons, but said the target was not Lille's Mathieu Debuchy.
"We want to look in France and it will be a French player," said Ancelotti. "But it will not be Debuchy because he's a Lille player."
