Angers host an out of form Paris Saint-Germain in the league action at Stade Jean-Bouin.
PSG vs ANG Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Nobody saw it coming, the results of the past few weeks too inexplicable and astoundingly shocking for all the football fans. For it was Paris Saint-Germain losing games after games, falling to pieces, crumbling like a hard substance, but too brittle to resist the pressure.
The Parisians lost four games in the last month or so. However the defeat to Rennes on penalties in the Coupe de France final would make the wound feel even deeper. No wonder, Thomas Tuchel is coming under a huge pressure. Now there are talks of him being given the impending axe. That’s looks far fetched at this stage. Still, there are standards, every football manager is expected to maintain when in charge of Parc des Prince.
Angers meanwhile are coming into this match on the back of a decent recent run. In fact they have lost just once in the last nine games, though only two resulted in the wins.
So there is definitely an area of improvement for the hosts. But they should sense the blood in this particular match, considering how PSG have been playing of late.
The Ligue 1 match will be played between Angers and Paris Saint-Germain at Stade Jean-Bouin ArenA, in Angers, France. The ground has a capacity of 18,752.
The game will start at 08:30 PM (IST), on Saturday night (IST).
