Paris Saint-Germain will be hosting Angers at Parc des Princes in Ligue 1 on Saturday, October 5, 2019. PSG boss Thomas Tuchel and his side had a productive European outing as they defeated Galatasaray 1-0 away in the UEFA Champions League. PSG will leave no chance for any errors in the upcoming clash against Angers, who are placed on the second position in the Ligue 1 points table and just two points off Thomas Tuchel’s men. PSG lead the Ligue 1 table with 18 points.
Paris Saint-Germain recorded a 1-0 away win against Bordeaux in their previous Ligue 1 clash. Neymar scored the only goal for PSG in that encounter. On the other hand, Angers settled for 1-1 home draw against Amiens SC. Rachid Alioui scored the only goal for Angers.
PSG forward Edinson Cavani is still out of action due to a hip problem. Kylian Mbappe is all set to make a return to the starting 11, as he missed few clashes due to a hamstring injury. Mbappe came on as a substitute in the match against Galatasaray in the UEFA Champions League. Neymar will join him in front, and he has scored late winners in their previous clashes against Strasbourg, Lyon, and Bordeaux in Ligue 1. Thomas Tuchel would be facing a severe problem in defence as Meunier and Dagba are out of action due to injuries. Youngster Loic Mbe Soh is likely to be in the starting line-up. Meanwhile, Angers squad will be heading to the clash without their crucial defender Abdoulaye Bamba as he picked up a thigh injury last month.
