Angers SCO boss Stéphane Moulin will be grateful not to have any fitness worries whatsoever before this clash with a fully healthy group to choose from.
Team News: PSG
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino has a number of players out of action. Thilo Kehrer (Corona virus), Alexandre Letellier (Elbow Injury), Colin Dagba (Corona virus) and Juan Bernat (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) can’t be considered.
Angers SCO have it in them to find the net against this PSG side, although just one goal may not quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 1-2 advantage for PSG when the referee blows the final whistle. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
