Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a doubt to face Evian on Sunday in a game which could see Paris Saint-Germain all but secure the Ligue 1 title.

• Johnson: PSG without Carlo?

The Sweden striker, 31, missed training on Friday with a virus, and it is unknown whether he will able to take his place in Carlo Ancelotti's starting line-up or even the PSG squad which will travel to Annecy for the game on Sunday evening. Ibrahimovic, who has struck a league-high 27 times for his club this season, missed a penalty in PSG's shock shoot-out loss in their Coupe de France quarter-final tie at Evian last week.

Brazilian attacking midfielder Lucas also missed Friday's session with the January signing from Sao Paulo nursing an ankle injury.

Should second-placed Marseille lose and Lyon fail to win this weekend and PSG triumph, they could even afford to lose their last four games of the season and would likely still be crowned champions given their current +35 goal difference advantage over OM.
