This Friday the almighty when French as it is PSG jumps to the field of the Parc Des Princes in Paris, to receive the visit of a hard rival as it is St. Etienne, in game that opens the fifth day of the Ligue 1 of France.


The reigning champions of French football have entered the season with everything, so they started winning the Super Cup of France after winning 4-0 to Monaco and have maintained that level in Ligue 1, where they have won all four games, being leaders of the season with 12 points, three points more than his escorts Dijon and Toulouse.

And because of everything shown, it is presaged that they once again won the crown in France, and that also having players like Neymar, Cavani, Mbappé among others, makes them far superior to the rest of the teams in French football.

But finally, this coming Thomas Tuchel has a nice test, as he will face one of the toughest defenses in the championship and this will serve for the debut in the UEFA Champions League where next week will face Liverpool.

For this game Tuchel will not be able to count on Kurzawa, Dani Alves and Verratti, besides Mbappé who was suspended for three games in French football, but we do not believe that this is a real problem due to the variety and quantity of players he has in his team. template.


On the other hand, those led by Jean-Louis Gasset started the season with a solid 2-1 victory against Guingamp, thanks to the good performance of Lois Diony and the new reinforcement as it is Wahbi Khazri who were the scorers of the game.

But after that, the Verts have struggled to get ahead of their commitments, since on the last day they tied at zero goals at home against Amiens SC and thus added their third consecutive draw, where the last two were ties to zero goals , with which St. Étienne is missing its maximum referent in the offensive zone as it is Jonathan Bamba, who no longer belongs to the team.

But, on the other hand, what does keep the technical team calm is the good work in the defensive block, since they have only received two goals in their four official games, and it is expected that before one of the most powerful teams in France and Europe as it is Paris Saint Germain can maintain that level.

As for direct confrontations, it is the Parisians who dominate the series throughout history, so PSG won 12 and tied 2 of the last 14 meetings with Les Verts, although not least, the last game of last season was tie to a goal, but it is also true that the PSG players already thought more about the 2018 World Cup Russia.
