Soccer France Ligue 1 Prediction
Angers vs Paris SG - Match Preview
⚽ 21 April 2023 - 19:00 GMT +0
The 32nd round of Ligue 1 opens with what looks like the most lopsided match possible as last-placed Angers host leaders PSG, knowing that they could be mathematically relegated to Ligue 2 if they lose. Doing whatever it takes to help their team, last weekend some SCO fans even tried to distract then-opponents Clermont by showing their backside during the two penalties that their team conceded, but it didn't work as Angers eventually lost 2-1 to remain rock-bottom.
Coach Alexandre Dujeux lamented his player's “lack of sharpness” during that defeat on Sunday after his team scored first within 30 minutes and even played the whole second half with eleven men against ten. A return to the Stade Raymond-Kopa will be welcome for Angers who have taken points in their last two home outings (W1, D1), and their recent 1-0 win here against in-form Lille shows that a positive result isn’t impossible.
PSG bounced back from consecutive Ligue 1 home losses on Saturday by winning 3-1 against Lens, their closest competitors before the last round, leaving coach Christophe Galtier understandably pleased. The Parisian’s boss, who has been plagued by allegations of racism that he denies, is now close to his second French title as a coach, with PSG sitting eight points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 standings.
Although Galtier stated that his men shouldn’t believe that “it is already done", it seems nigh on impossible that PSG will be denied a record 11th French title considering they will only face teams currently ranked tenth or below until the end of the season. They travel well to this venue too, emerging victorious in their last six visits to Angers, while their last H2H loss here dates back to January 1975.
📋 Players to watch: After ending a 17-game Ligue 1 drought against Clermont, Angers’ Adrien Hunou could be a threat as he’s scored three of his four league goals on home soil. Rested in the reverse fixture, Kylian Mbappé could be a key figure in this match, and he has 12 goal contributions in just seven meetings with Angers (G8, A4).
⚡ Hot streak: PSG have claimed full points in all 11 of their league road trips where they scored first.
