What you need to know about PSG vs Strasbourg
Here are the top stats for the game along with a tool to help you pick the best odds.
PSG trying to remain the only unbeaten team
It’s not that big of a surprise to see PSG as the only unbeaten team thus far in Ligue 1. Their main goal is to win the Champions League, and getting the Ligue 1 title is something that they expect, and won’t accept second place. Every coach that takes over the team knows that, so Christophe Galtier is focused to get the job done. It’s been five years since the last time Strasbourg beat PSG, but the last one ended with a 3-3 scoreline. That game was played at the end of last season in Strasbourg. Alongside Lionel Messi who is still in Argentina celebrating his World Cup title, PSG will be without injured Nuno Mendes and Danilo Pereira. But, most importantly their two best strikers, Kylian Mbappe with 12 goals, and Neymar with eleven will be able to compete.
PSG’s probable lineup: Donnarumma, Ramos, Bitshiabu, Bernat, Verratti, Soler, Mukiele, Ruiz, Vitinha, Sarabia, Ekitike.
Strasbourg is second from bottom with only a single win this soccer tips tomorrow season, and it took them ten rounds of matches to get that victory. But, another five after that one, they are still looking for a second win. Strasbourg has eight draw games, the highest mark alongside Reims, but that only got them eleven points in total and a lot of uncertainty going forward. PSG is the worst possible opponent to restart their season especially when they have allowed three or more goals in their past four matches. It is somewhat strange that Strasbourg earned more points playing away from home than in front of their fans. Coach Julien Stephan can’t count on Colin Dagba and Nordine Kandil who are injured. However, he will depend on his two best strikers Habib Diallo and Kevin Gameiro to provide some damage to PSG’s defense.
Strasbourg’s probable lineup: Sels, Le Marchand, Nyamsi, Djiku, Lienard, Thomasson, Aholou, Bellegarde, Pierre-Gabriel, Gameiro, Diallo.
Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.
Player to Watch: Habib Diallo
When it comes to PSG, we know plenty about their stars, but the player that will get some attention is Strasbourg’s best scorer Habib Diallo. The 27-year-old has six goals this season and will try to further his agenda against the best team in the league. He was born in Senegal but also has a French passport. He played a total of 80 games for Strasbourg scoring 27 goals.
