Two sides neck to neck in the Ligue 1 rankings lock horns this Friday evening. Reigning Champions PSG welcome Angers at the Parc des Princes. The match kickoffs at 10 pm.
Both sides are coming off successive victories in game week 5. PSG recorded a win against Reims while Angers enjoyed a five-goal thriller against Brest.
PSG had a troubled start to their campaign following their loss in the Champions League finals. The Ligue 1 nine-time champions’ shock loss took to the side with two losses in the first two matches in the league.
Another pain in the injury followed the dramatic loss in the Classique against Marseille. Tuchel’s men seem to be waking up from their slumber with emphatic wins over Reims, Metz, and Nice without conceding a single goal.
Reims has been in disarray since the start of the season. It was not a hard task for the Champions to take advantage of the side’s woes. Mbappe was on target while setting two goals for Maurio Icardi.
Tuchel can give thanks for their next fixture against sides Nimes, Nantes, and Dijon. All sides are currently facing woes in Ligue 1. It hands Tuchel an advantage to regain his side’s form. However, this Friday will prove a step-up with Angers coming from a victorious win in their last outing in the league.
