PSG Seeks Vital Ligue 1 Points on the Road Against AngersPublished April 14, 2017 by Florin P
PSG needs all three points to keep its championship hopes alive when the team travels to Angers (7:45 p.m UK Time).
PSG players are under tremendous pressure to save a season that started so well but took a turn for the worse. After suffering an untimely and humiliating elimination from the Champions League, the reigning champions are trailing the leaders Monaco. Unless they win all the remaining matches in Ligue 1, they are likely to lose the championship. A victory on the road against Angers is within reach.
The French Cup Looming for Both Teams
Angers had two objectives this season and one is already completed, while their performance on the other front also exceeds expectations. The team was supposed to avoid relegation and with nine points above the danger line, they are certain to play one more season in the first division. The other objective was to make a deep run in the French cup and they made the semifinals against all odds.
Not even the most enthusiastic fans expect Angers to defeat PSG at home, but a draw seems to be within reach. They managed a scoreless draw two years ago and will go for a similar result when the reigning champions come visiting. The long injury list and the fact that they drew a single match in the last 15 rounds are all serious reasons for concern. Most of the absent players serve defensive roles, which only makes their situation worse.
An Offensive Trident for PSG
Angers is going to defend for 90 minutes, but the visitors have the perfect counter for their strategy. Cavani will spearhead the attack but he will have two players beside him, to assist him in his offensive forays. PSG is likely to claim a lopsided victory and punters can take advantage of odds of 11/10 offered by bet365 Sports. In order to win this bet, the visitors need to defeat Angers by two goals or more.
