PSG just suffered their first defeat of the season (2-0 loss away at Evian). The result is even more surprising as Evian were going through rough times at the moment of the game.
In the first half PSG had a bunch of good chances but somehow managed to miss them all. Coach Blanc thought it would a good idea to give some rest to winger Lucas so PSG started with Menez.
Menez wasted every single ball he could get his foot on. At one point the entire situation began to be very annoying but Blanc was stubborn and only in min 65 changed Menez.
But it was too late, Ibrahimovic & company didn’t fell like playing anymore in the 2nd half. It was cold outside and they had enough of it.
Central defender Alex was rested last round and will return now, same as winger Lavezzi. Menez should once again return where he belongs, on the bench, with Lucas taking his place place in the first 11.
PSG should be fired up trying to make amends for the ground lost last round. Playing against an opponent like Sochaux could create the perfect circumstances for an excellent performance from PSG.
Sochaux dominated the entire game last round against Reims, but lost 2-0. Their defense is incredibly weak and there is at least one vital error per game. In spite of that, Sochaux don’t defend on two lines and go upfront in numbers. They did that ever since coach Renard arrived and it won’t change against PSG.
Last round Reims only defended the entire game and somehow managed to score 2 against Sochaux, imagine how many could PSG score playing their usual offensive game.
This should be a trashing. PSG -2.5 at the odds of 2.10 is a nice bet, but you never know how Sochaux could net one. This is why I prefer PSG to score at least 3 goals at 1.72.
