If Ibrahimovic does indeed sit out of Friday's clash at Lille, August 16's home game against newly-promoted Gazelec Ajaccio will mark his first league outing of the new season.

Fellow South Americans Javier Pastore and Ezequiel Lavezzi are still seeking match-fitness, while youngster Jean-Kevin Augustin has enjoyed a prolific pre-season.
