PSG and Angers meet on Parc des Princes, in the first match of the 6th stage of Ligue 1. Both teams have 9 points each, after the first 5 matches. you can find the recommended tip at the end of the match analysis.
PSG: Team form, news and statistics
The Parisians have recovered after the false start of the season.
The failures with Lens and Marseille were followed by 3 consecutive victories, matches in which Tuchel’s team did not even score.
The series coincided with the return of those who were found positive with Covid 19.
Metz, Nice and Reims were the victims of Thomas Tuchel’s team, which has to recover 4 points to the leading position, on which Rennes is. In the last stage, Icardi managed to break the ice and scored both goals of PSG, on the field of Reims.
These were the first goals of the Argentine, after the lockdown.
Another piece of good news is the return of Neymar. The Brazilian escaped suspension, following the scandal with Alvaro Gonzalez, from the match with Marseille. In addition, the medical problems that have plagued him lately are a thing of the past, so Neymar has been preparing normally for the last training sessions.
Mbappe can’t miss the first 11. Kurzawa and Di Maria are suspended for this match. Idrissa Gueye trained, too, normally, but it’s a bit unlikely to enter the top 11, in the midfield, where Tuchel will bet on Draxler, Paredes and Verratti. Bernat and Kehrer are injured, so Diallo will play on the left side of the defense.
The Parisians lost only one match at home, in the last edition of the championship, 0-2 with Reims.
The failure with OM, from the beginning of this season, tensed the atmosphere a little, but the victories from the last 3 matches brought peace to Parc des Princes. PSG has 10 victories in the last 12 home games.
Angers: Team form, news and statistics
Angers has a very good start to the season. The 9 points obtained in the first 5 stages of the season are an excellent dowry for the team coached by Stephane Moulin.
The victory with Brest, 3-2 in the last stage, took shape towards the end of the match, when Angers came back from 1-2.
Santamaria’s departure to Freiburg, two stages ago, left a goal in the center of the field.
This explains the failure with Montpellier, 1-4, and the tormented victory of the previous round.
Pierick Capelle, who was replaced by Santamaria, could not replace one of the players who have been constantly evolving in recent years. Even so, Moulin has no other options for that position, so Capelle will have a very difficult mission on the Parc des Princes. Enzo Ebosse, brought in from Le Mans two weeks ago, could replace Ait-Nouri in the top 11 on the left wing of the defense. Mathias Lage is down injured.
Angers won at Dijon, 1-0, at the start of the season, but it is not a victory that “will keep you too hungry”, because Dijon has only one point after the first 5 stages. In the previous trip, Angers clearly lost to Montpellier. Moulin’s team has won only 3 of the last 12 away matches.
This period also includes the failure of the Parc des Princes a year ago (0-4).
In the last 12 away games, Angers have lost 6 times.

Football Prediction of the Day PSG vs Angers
Traditionally, Angers is part of the numerous list of PSG’s victims, regardless of the venue of the match.
The Parisians have won the last 9 direct matches, in all competitions, and have only one direct match that they did not win, in Ligue 1, 0-0 in 2015. That was the only direct match in which Angers escaped undefeated. I bet on an advantage of at least two goals at the break, in favor of Tuchel’s team, which will also be able to rely on Neymar.
