Angers and Paris Saint-Germain will face each other in Ligue 1 this week. The match between Alexandre Dujeux’s side and Christophe Galtier’s team will be held at Stade Raymond Kopa and is scheduled to kick off at 8pm UK time on Friday.

Angers

Angers have been one of the worst teams in Ligue 1 so far this season and are very likely to get relegated to the second tier of French football at the end of the season. Alexandre Dujeux’s side are simply dire at the moment, and it is hard to see them survive in the top flight.

Les Noirs et Blancs are at the foot of the Ligue 1 table at the moment with 14 points from 31 matches. Angers are as many as 17 points behind 16th-placed Brest, and unless there is a miracle, they are not going to be in Ligue 1 next season.

Angers will head into the Ligue 1 match against PSG on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Clermont away from home in the league. It came after a 1-0 victory over Lille in front of their own fans in Ligue 1 and followed a 1-1 draw with Nice at home in the league.

Team News:

Angers are likely to line up in a 5-3-2 formation against Paris Saint-Germain at home in Ligue 1 on Friday evening. Paul Jean François Bernardoni will be in goal for the home team. Himad Abdelli and Ibrahima Niane will be the two centre-forwards.

Paris Saint-Germain

Paris Saint-Germain have not always been at their best in Ligue 1 this season, but they are very much set to win the title yet again this campaign. There were a couple of hiccups for PSG in the league, but they are now back to winning ways and are looking good for the title.

Christophe Galtier’s side are at the top of the Ligue 1 table at the moment with 72 points from 31 matches, as many as eight points clear of second-placed and bitter rivals Marseille. PSG have failed to do much of note in the UEFA Champions League yet again this campaign, but they look set to maintain their stronghold over the French domestic league.

PSG will head into the Ligue 1 match against Angers away from home at Stade Raymond Kopa on the back of a 3-1 victory over RC Lens at Parc des Princes in the league. It came after a 2-0 victory over Nice on the road in the league and followed a 1-0 loss at the hands of Lyon at home in Ligue 1.

Team News:

Paris Saint-Germain are likely to line up in a 3-5-2 formation against Angers on Friday evening. Neymar is injured and will not play, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe will be the two players in attack. Marquinhos, Sergio Ramos and Danilo will be three centre-backs for PSG.
