Crucial game for Paris in Bordeaux tonight before the Barca Clash. After two unhealthy games for Paris, the Emery’s boys have to reassure themselves and repeat what they did in cup two weeks ago.
Of Course Menez is not Messi but Bordeaux, which is willing to shine again, only lost one game in 2017 and is an interesting sparring partner for Paris.
Over the last 6 games in FL1 Bordeaux didn’t lose any game with 3 draw and 3 win, scoring 10 times and confirming their new year resolutions.
History against PSG
Over the last 6 games against Paris, Bordeaux won one time, draw 2 times and lost 3 times.
Last October, Paris won away 2-0 at home where El Matador scored 2 times.
Bordeaux’s top striker
Rolan and Kamano with 5 goals each.
Malcon with 4 goals.
Bordeaux’s top assists
Plasil with 4 assists.
Sabaly with 3 and Thelin with 2 assists.
Bordeaux’s player to watch
The young Youssouf Sabaly (ex PSG), 20 year old, is a defender pretty strong at the moment.
He is definitely the player to watch tonight.
Paris missing players
Not in the list: Lo Celso, Krychowiak, Augustin
PSG starting squad prediction
(4-3-3) Trapp; Meunier, Silva, Marquinhos , Kurzawa, Motta, Rabiot; Verratti, Lucas, Draxler Cavani,
Emery is expecting Bordeaux to be more aggressive and play higher than the last couple of games (Lille and Dijon, two ultra-defensive teams).
Paris might have a chance to have more space to score early in the game, especially with Verratti’s come back.
Bordeaux 0 – 2 Paris
