PSG, deprived of the trophy last season, will not want to miss the opportunity to write an additional line to its long history.
The Ligue 1 leader, who also has to play in the Coupe de la Ligue final against Lyon and a Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta Bergamo, has an exciting end to the season. Since its last official match against Borussia Dortmund (2-0) on March 11, the Parisian club have played 3 friendly matches since the beginning of July. Neymar’s partners want to return to competition as demonstrated by the cards inflicted on Le Havre (9-0), Waasland-Beveren (7-0) and Celtic Glasgow (4-0).
The magic trio struck again during these friendly matches with 4 goals for Neymar and 3 for Mbappé and Icardi.
AS St Etienne, who took two bags against Paris this season in the league (4-0) and in the Coupe de la Ligue (6-1), will have to strengthen their defense to stay alive as long as possible in this final. The Forézien club, which will be deprived of Stéphane Ruffier on the start following a conflict with Claude Puel, shows a record during the summer friendly matches of 3 successes in front of Rumilly (4-1), Nice (4-1) and Charleroi (4) -0) against 1 setback suffered against Anderlecht (1-2 and 0-1). The 17th of Ligue 1, which finds a final of the Coupe de France after a famine of 38 years, will be deprived of Monnet-Paquet and Youssouf and most certainly of Cabaye. ASSE is not in the best conditions when it comes to facing the Parisian ogre.
