Angers vs PSG XI: Possible Lineups and team news for League 1 game 2022-23


PSG are out to take another step towards securing the Ligue 1 title when they face rock-bottom Angers in Matchday 32.

The defending champions are eight points clear of second-placed Marseille after a 3-1 win over high-flying Lens last weekend. Head coach Christophe Galtier will be looking to wrap up the league title in an otherwise disappointing season for PSG.

Angers need a footballing miracle to maintain their status in France’s top flight. They are 17 points adrift of safety with just seven games remaining in the competition after winning just one league game since the World Cup break.

The Parisian side have won each of the last 15 meetings between them, including the reverse fixture in January. Goals from Hugo Ekitike and Lionel Messi gave PSG a 2-0 win.

Heading down the final stretch of the season, Angers have one of the lengthiest injury lists in Ligue 1.

Ulrick Eneme Ella, Pierrick Capelle, Miha Blazic, Lois Diony, Ilyes Chetti, Farid El Melali and Ali Kalla are all expected to miss out.

Amine Salama could return following a muscle problem, though ex-Tottenham midfielder Nabil Bentaleb is ineligible due to suspension.
