Strasbourg vs Paris SG - Match Preview
⚽ 27 May 2023 - 19:00 GMT +0
The rescue mission of coach Frédéric Antonetti is on the verge of being successful as after a 1-1 draw in Troyes last weekend, Strasbourg holds a six-point lead over the relegation zone with two matchdays remaining. When the eldest coach in Ligue 1 (61 years old) joined the club in February, it was agreed that he would be granted an additional year on his contract in case of avoiding relegation to Ligue 2, and he now only needs one point to officially achieve that.
If 17th-place Nantes fails to secure three points at Lille, even a loss against league leaders Paris Saint-Germain could still ensure their top-flight status next season. Therefore, Le Racing enter this match without too much pressure, but considering their strong home form of late (W5, L2), and their balanced record in the previous eights league H2Hs held here (W2, D4, L2), they could turn this final outing of the season at Stade de la Meinau into a great celebration.
With a six-point lead at the top of the table and two games remaining in the season, visiting PSG could mathematically clinch a historic 11th Ligue 1 title by avoiding defeat here. While rumours suggest that José Mourinho could replace Christophe Galtier next season, the French coach could go down in Ligue 1 history as the first manager to keep his team at the top of the standings from the first to the last matchday of the season!
The Parisians have been gaining momentum in May, as a 2-1 win away to Auxerre on Sunday made it three consecutive wins thanks to Kylian Mbappé’s brace after only eight minutes of play - the quickest in Ligue 1 since 2012. That victory extended their flawless record against current bottom-six teams (W11), including a 2-1 win in the reverse H2H.
📋 Players to watch: After his brace in Strasbourg’s last home outing, Habib Diallo has become the club’s first player to score 20 goals in a top-flight season since Albert Gemmrich in 1977/78 (21). While Marquinhos has recently extended his contract with PSG until 2028, the Brazilian defender might steal the show after scoring at both ends in the reverse H2H.
⚡ Hot streak: The last five H2Hs have all witnessed the opening goal scored within the first 20 minutes.
