Strasbourg vs PSG
French League Cup – Coupe de la Ligue
Date: Wednesday, 13th December 2017
Kick off at 20:05UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Earlier this month Strasbourg stunned and shocked PSG when they became the first team this season to beat them. Not many people gave Strasbourg any chance of victory, even a draw seemed unrealistic and yet they won the match 2-1. Was it actually a shock though? Because Strasbourg have been in very good form and haven’t lost a game since the beginning of November. This includes being unbeaten in their last 5 games and acquiring 11 points from a possible 15.
Strasbourg will surely approach this game to enjoy it and will expect PSG to be in an attacking mood. Though it’s unsure what team PSG coach Unai Emery will put out. He has a choice to play a strong side given that the team have such a lead in the league, but he will surely put out some fringe players together with some of the clubs stars.
As for PSG there isn’t much more to be said, other than they are one of the strongest clubs in Europe. They reacted well after losing to Strasbourg by easing past Lille 3-1 and keeping their winning margin in Ligue 1 the same.
