Paris-Saint-Germain wishes to resume its march forward. After its unexpected setback in Rennes (2-0), the team of the Capital receives the SCO Angers, author of a good start to the season. A meeting full of surprises.
PSG no longer has the right to make mistakes. The setback (2-0) against Stade Rennais left indelible traces within the Parisian workforce. An error of course which must be inconsequential after a perfect start in Ligue 1. Before this disappointment, eight meetings for as many victories. Mauricio Pochettino expects to reshuffle his squad with his flood of South American internationals unavailable for this match.
On the Angers side, an equally interesting dynamic. Gérald Baticle’s men have a series of good performances in Ligue 1 even against the cadors. No goal conceded against Lyon, Rennes and OM accumulated with seven points taken in the bag. A single poor performance against FC Nantes (1-4) quickly forgotten by the current fourth place of the SCO.
The question of this meeting lies in the quality of PSG. At its optimal level, the Club de la Capitale should have Angers unopposed. However, since the South American internationals will be put to rest, the composition appears less impressive. For us, the danger will come from the terrible Kylian Mbappé in all the right moves. Cho will sound a slight Angevin revolt without succeeding in shaking up the vice-champions of France.
