Paris Saint-Germain and Angers will clash off at the Park Des Princes in Paris in Round 10 of the 2021-22 Ligue 1 season on Friday, October 15, 2021, at 3:00 PM (ET). Here, you will find the expected lineups of both teams that will appear in Matchday 10 of the French Ligue 1.
This will be their 15th overall meeting. No surprises here as Angers are yet to celebrate a victory in head-to-head clashes, with Paris Saint-Germain having grabbed a triumph on 13 occasions to this day, and the remaining match has ended in a draw.
Their most recent game took place on April 21, 2021, when the Red and Blues torpedoed Le SCO with a final result of 5-0 at home in the 2020/21 Coupe de France Quarter-Finals. It promises to be an even more exciting clash as they meet for the first time in the 2021/2022 Ligue 1 season.
PSG probable lineup
Sergio Ramos, Juan Bernat, Julian Draxler, and Layvin Kurzawa are the three Paris Saint-Germain players that will presently miss the game due to injuries. In addition to them, 17-year-old academy youngster Ismael Gharbi has not been called up for the clash as a result of an injury that has kept him from playing at all this season.
In their previous 11 games in all competitions, Pochettino's team had only lost one. In that time, they have also won nine games, including a 2-0 Champions League victory over Manchester City.
PSG possible starting XI:
Donnarumma; Hakimi, Kehrer, Kimpembe, Mendes; Gueye, Verratti; Herrera, Wijnaldum, Mbappe; Icardi.
Angers probable lineup
Because Angers have no injury problems at the present, head coach Gerald Baticle is expected to persist with his tried-and-true starting 3-5-2 lineup. The only player missing from their squad will be the rarely used 21-year-old midfielder Zinedine Ould Khaled, who has recorded barely 95 minutes in Ligue 1 in his senior career.
Black and Whites have won four and drawn four of their nine Ligue 1 games this season. Before losing 4-1 to Nantes on Matchday 6, Angers had a five-game undefeated run to start the season. They are currently unbeaten in three games, with two wins and two draws since their previous defeat.
Angers possible starting XI:
Bernardoni; Manceau, Traore, Thomas; Cabot, Mendy, Mangani, Fulgini, Ebosse; Ali Cho, Boufal.
