Angers vs PSG Preview: First League Meeting Between David & Goliath

Angers vs PSG Preview: First League Meeting Between David & Goliath


There have been a few surprise packages in Ligue 1 this season but none more so than promoted Angers who currently find themselves occupying a Champions League spot in third place.

It is absolutely incredible what they have done so far. When you consider they were promoted from Ligue 2 in third position last season, 14 points off the champions Troyes, who are currently rock bottom with just five points. Their defence has been integral to their amazing form, conceding just nine goals which is only one more than ourselves.

It will be the first competitive league meeting between the two clubs and if stats are to go anything by, it bodes well for PSG tonight. Les Parisiens have only lost one out of the last 21 away games against promoted sides. But, we have come face to face with le SCO before having beat them in a Coupe de France semi-final four year ago.

Although he was not at training yesterday, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in the group for the trip to the Stade Jean-Bouin. Serge Aurier is back after three games out. Gregory Van der Wiel is suffering with a back problem and has been left at home as Javier Pastore and Marco Verratti continue their recoveries.

PSG squad: Augustin, Aurier, Cavani, David Luiz, Di Maria, Ibrahimovic Kurzawa, Lavezzi, Lucas, Marquinhos, Matuidi, Maxwell, Ongenda, Rabiot, Sirigu, Stambouli, Thiago Motta, Thiago Silva, Trapp.
