There are two questions marks for tomorrow: Edinson (Cavani) and Ibrahimovic.
We will wait for this afternoon's training session and see if they can be included in the squad.

Although the current league leaders are unlikely to severely miss his services against Lorient, which reside one place above the relegation zone, Ibrahimovic's absence gives Lucas Moura a chance to support Edinson Cavani in attack, per Holyman.
Ibrahimovic has been on a terrific run of late, netting an array of stunning goals in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League. His four-goal haul during the French side's 5-0 dismantling of Anderlecht highlighted a forward who is capable of special moments from anywhere on the pitch.
Similarly, his famous backheeled flick recently thrust the current champions to a simple 4-0 win over Bastia.
Ibrahimovic has scored 11 goals in 14 games across all competitions this season, per WhoScored, but currently trails Monaco's Radamel Falcao by three strikes in the domestic division, as recorded by Ligue 1's official website.
Ibrahimovic recently joined the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale on the FIFA shortlist for the Ballon d'Or, as reported by Sky Sports.
Both PSG and Sweden—which face a crunch World Cup qualifying playoff against Portugal on Nov. 15 and Nov. 19—will pray for the charismatic forward's speedy return to full fitness.
