Mehdi Chahiri (Knee Injury) and Mohamed Simakan (Arthroscopie) won’t be able to feature for Strasbourg gaffer Thierry Laurey.
Team News: PSG
PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino has to currently contend with reduced team options. Layvin Kurzawa (Calf Injury), Mauro Icardi (Thigh Problems), Marco Verratti (Corona virus), Alessandro Florenzi (Corona virus) and Juan Bernat (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out on this game. Neymar cannot play in this game through suspension.
Our assessment is that Strasbourg must be fancied to breach the defence of this PSG lineup, although just one goal probably won’t be as many as they’ll concede.
We’ve gone for both teams to score in a 1-2 winning margin for PSG at full-time. Expecting it to be very competitive.
