Paris Saint-Germain will be looking for their 10th consecutive league win when they host Strasbourg in Ligue 1 action at Parc des Princes, in Paris, France, on Sunday night (IST).
What competition it is? Ligue 1
Teams: Paris Saint-Germain and Strasbourg
Kick Off: Monday 08 April
Match Timing: 12:30 AM (IST)
Where the game is played? Parc des Princes (47,929)
Paris Saint-Germain are almost home and dry and don’t need to flex their muscle in their remaining games. They have so much gap at the top of the table, that if the reigning champions are to lose their remaining games, they may still end up winning by some margin.
For the Parisians are sitting atop the Ligue 1 table having collected 80 points from 29 games. While 2nd placed Lille are a huge 20 points behind them at 2nd having played a game more than them.
But everybody knows that the Ligue 1 wasn’t the priority for Tomas Tuchel. No team in France is well-equipped to challenge their might. It’s the Champions League which the owners of this club and fans want most. And just like any other season, the European journey has ended far too prematurely.
The managers have come and gone, all failing to win Europe. Tuchel knows that the same fate may be waiting for him if he fails to deliver what PSG want the most.
That said, PSG’s long injury list hasn’t helped the cause either. Neymar missed both the legs against Manchester United, while Edinson Cavani wasn’t at his full strength.
Strasbourg, on the other hand, will head into this game on the back of a stunning Coupe de Ligue final victory over Guingamp. It wasn’t a convincing win as they had to ride their luck on penalties (4-1).
No matter what happens from now on and until the end of the season, this is one of the best seasons for Strasbourg. And it’s no less than what this club deserves, coming all the way from the 5th tier to become a regular fixture in Ligue 1.
