Missing Players and team news:


Monaco youngster Willem Geubbels is available for the final after serving a three-game suspension for his involvement in the mass brawl with Lyon, but Kovac is unlikely to consider the attacker for a starting role. The veteran Stevan Jovetic has a chance of shaking off a calf injury in time for Wednesday, Kovac confirmed, but attacking midfielder Sofiane Diop is expected to remain sidelined with a sprained ankle. Pietro Pellegri is nursing a back injury but was never likely to feature from the off, and barring the possible inclusion of Ruben Aguilar on the right-hand side for Gelson Martins, Kovac should elect to name a largely unchanged team for the final. Radoslaw Majecki has garnered praise for his performances in the cup this term, and he will desperately hope to keep Benjamin Lecomte out of the team for the final. In a huge blow to their chances of defending the crown, PSG will be without Neymar for the final, as the Brazilian attacker was booked for the third time in 10 matches in the semi-final win over Montpellier. The champions will also be forced to make do without suspended centre-back Presnel Kimpembe for Wednesday’s final, while Idrissa Gueye and Abdou Diallo are doubtful after missing out against Reims with gastrointestinal problems. Julian Draxler is also expected to miss out after suffering a reported hamstring injury at the weekend, while Layvin Kurzawa and Marco Verratti will not play again this season. With Neymar and Draxler both set to miss out, Mbappe could shift to the left-hand side as Kean leads the line, while Leandro Paredes should return to the engine room after coming on as a substitute against Reims.
