PSG had a really busy schedule this month, and it all culminated with the midweek Champions League game against Chelsea (won 2-1).
They already won the title in Ligue1, but are still fighting on 3 other fronts (Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and Champions League). Thanks to the valuable players on the bench, PSG avoided tiredness and still got positive results.
Hosts are in full confidence at the moment, and now they can also relax a bit, seeing there won’t be any midweek game after this round.
Coach Blanc could once again rotate a bit, but we all know that is no reason to worry.
Until last round Reims were getting good results, but they were far from convincing in the field. Justice was finally done last week, when Reims lost 1-0 against Bastia.
Keeper Placide was often all alone in-front of opponents, as Reims never had a solid defensive line. He made some incredible saves this month, but last round he could no longer be the hero. He will definitely have a lot of work to do against PSG’s valuable strikers.
Reims will welcome back midfielder Kankava after suspension, but will miss midfielder Traore.
One sided game to be expected, with Reims barely having the power to exit their own half. Since there is absolutely no pressure, PSG can enjoy every single minute on the field and make the most of their skills. PSG -2 at 2.20
UPDATE: There is a big probability that PSG won’t rotate, as fullback Aurier and forward Ongenda were left outside the squad.
PSG: Trapp, Sirigu – David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Van der Wiel, Maxwell, Kurzawa – Thiago Motta, Matuidi, Verratti, Rabiot, Stambouli – Ibrahimovic, Cavani, Lucas, Di Maria, Augustin.
