Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the PSG v Angers SCO game (plus the best game odds).
PSG will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 0-2 Ligue 1 victory versus Reims.
In that game, Paris Saint-Germain managed 65% possession and 21 shots at goal with 7 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Paris Saint-Germain was Mauro Icardi (9', 62'). Stade de Reims got 8 shots on goal with 3 on target.
Their latest results really do illustrate the point that huge efforts have been put in by the Paris Saint-Germain backline. Les Rouge-et-Bleu have been stingy, with the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past 6 outings standing at 3.
Angers SCO will go into this game following on from a 3-2 Ligue 1 win as they beat Brest in their most recent outing.
In that match, Angers SCO managed 52% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. For Angers SCO, the scorers were Sada Thioub (22'), Ismaël Traoré (78') and Angelo Fulgini (80'). For their opponents, Stade Brestois 29 had 14 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Steve Mounié (3') and Gaëtan Charbonnier (32') scored for Brest.
Throughout their six most recent matches, Stéphane Moulin's Angers SCO have turned their attacks into goals a total of 8 times, earning them a goals scored per game average of 1.33.
Head to head
Delving into their past head to head meetings going back to 27/05/2017 tells us that these fixtures have been miserable for Angers SCO. They’ve not managed to come away with any victories at all whereas PSG have been the better of the two, beating them in 100 per cent of those games played.
A combined sum of 20 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 17 of them from Les Rouge-et-Bleu and 3 coming from Les Scoïstes. That is an average goals per game value of 3.33.
The previous league game between the two was Ligue 1 match day 9 on 05/10/2019 which ended up with the score at Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 Angers SCO.
That time, Paris Saint-Germain had 72% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 8 on target. The scorers were Pablo Sarabia (13'), Mauro Icardi (37'), Idrissa Gueye (59') and Neymar Jr (90').
Angers SCO got 10 shots at goal with 2 on target.
The referee was Willy Delajod.
Team News: PSG
Neymar (Calf Problems), Thilo Kehrer (Adductor problems), Idrissa Gueye (Ankle Injury) and Juan Bernat (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will be missing for PSG boss Thomas Tuchel. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Layvin Kurzawa and Ángel Di María.
It looks as if Les Rouge-et-Bleu should use the 4-3-3 system this time featuring Keylor Navas, Mitchel Bakker, Presnel Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Alessandro Florenzi, Ander Herrera, Leandro Daniel Paredes, Marco Verratti, Neymar Jr, Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe.
Team News: Angers SCO
Owing to a completely injury-free squad to pick from, Angers SCO boss Stéphane Moulin has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
There’s a good chance that Les Scoïstes will likely make use of a 4-3-3 formation by sending out Paul Bernardoni, Abdoulaye Bamba, Mateo Pavlovic, Ismael Traore, Rayan Ait Nouri, Thomas Mangani, Pierrick Capelle, Angelo Fulgini, Antonin Bobichon, Stephane Bahoken and Sada Thioub.
We’ve got the feeling that Angers SCO should be able to breach the defence of this PSG side, but that is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
We can see both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for PSG at the end of this one. Looking forward to this.
