📋 Team News: AJ Auxerre
The AJ Auxerre manager Christophe Pélissier will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash thanks to a fully healthy squad available to choose from.
It seems likely that AJA will probably make use of the 3-4-3 system for the game, utilising Ionut Andrei Radu, Rayan Raveloson, Jubal, Souleymane Toure, Akim Zedadka, Han-Noah Massengo, Birama Toure, Gideon Mensah, Lassine Sinayoko, Nuno Da Costa and Gauthier Hein.
📰 Team News: PSG
PSG manager Christophe Galtier has some current player fitness concerns. Nordi Mukiele (Hamstring Injury), Presnel Kimpembe (Achilles tendon rupture), Neymar (Ankle Surgery) and Nuno Mendes (Hamstring Injury) can’t be considered.
It’s our belief that Les Rouge-et-Bleu could decide to make use of a 3-4-1-2 formation, starting the game with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Marquinhos, Sergio Ramos, Danilo Pereira, Warren Zaire-Emery, Juan Bernat, Marco Verratti, Fabian Ruiz, Lionel Messi, Hugo Ekitike and Kylian Mbappe.
We envisage that AJ Auxerre will likely be able to breach the defence of this Paris Saint-Germain outfit, although one goal is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
Our tip is for a very close game with a 1-2 victory for Paris Saint-Germain at the end of this one. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
