PSG Nancy Preview

psg nancy preview

PSG

PSG destroyed historical rivals Marseille last week (won 5-1), and are now only 3 points behind leaders Monaco.

The performance in the field was impressive, and the victory in the end was memorable. PSG always make extra efforts against reputed sides (see the game against Barcelona or the one against Marseile), but tend to reduce rhythm and take it lightly against mediocre sides.

Coach Unai Emery has quite a challenge on his hands trying to make room for everyone in the lineup. Choosing between Draxler and Pastore, or Di Maria and Lucas can be quite a daunting task.

Hosts will be without midfielders Rabiot and Motta and winger Di Maria.

NANCY

Nancy picked up only 1 point in the last 5 rounds, and failed to find the net in any of those games.

Because of the good performances in the first part of the season, Nancy aren’t in the relegation zone yet, but it’s only a matter of time if nothing changes.

Their football is one of the most disappointing in Ligue 1 at the moment, and it will be a miracle if they manage to stand ground against PSG.

Guests welcome back defenders Maouassa and Chretien, but will miss defender Badila, experienced midfielder Diarra and forward Mandanne.

BETTING

PSG can be a bit superficial against teams like Nancy, but hopefully coach Unai Emery will rotate a bit and this will increase players’ motivation. Even PSG’s youth team can have a field day against Nancy. PSG -2.25 at 1.94
