Paris St Germain will be looking to improve upon their midweek form against Valenciennes in the knowledge that victory on Saturday against Toulouse will take them a point clear at the top of Ligue 1.
Laurent Blanc's team are currently second, two points behind Monaco - who play on Sunday - after four wins and three draws from their opening seven games.
They were fortunate to take three points from their 1-0 win over VA on Wednesday however, something Blanc readily acknowledged.
He told reporters: ``It is true that we suffered in Valenciennes and that it was a bad game, we are aware of that.
``But we won and if we continue to take three points despite playing badly, it will be good for after the Champions League.''
Of Saturday's game against improving opponents, the former France boss added: ``The team will be different than against Valenciennes.
``All coaches know this puzzle. We would like to leave some players to rest, but to leave out major players can create imbalance in the team.''
After taking just three points from the opening five games, Toulouse have now enjoyed two successive victories to move up to 11th.
However, coach Alain Casanova is reading little into that, especially against such difficult opponents.
He told reporters: ``It will not be clever.
``It will be in place, solid and organised.
``For me, Paris are a more complete team (than last season) and will keep the title.''
Midfielder Clement Chantome added: ``(We are) eager to go.
``What is important against them is a good start and not to go as victims.''
