Troyes have only two victories so far this season, and both of them are away from home. It is truly a shame as their fans have been exemplary throughout the season and they really deserved more.
Although they are already relegated, this can be the most important game of the year for Troyes. The game against PSG is the highlight of the season for Troyes, especially now since PSG qualified further in Champions League.
Fans surely have something special prepared seeing they will have national (and even international) attention, and players are ready to outdo themselves and save the season through a positive result.
Hosts will welcome back winger Camus after suspension.
PSG surprised many when they eliminated Chelsea and qualified to the next stage of Champions League. It was a busy schedule for PSG with games in Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue, Champions League and Ligue1. Most probably now a period of relaxation will follow, a period in which PSG won’t make much efforts against their Ligue1 opponents.
Rotation should be expected, maybe even more than usual, but even so, PSG will continue to be the most powerful side in Ligue1.
This game can be a perfect case study, as we can understand the importance of some factors in deciding the final outcome. On one hand we have determination and fans support, and on the other we have value. It is difficult to anticipate which way the balance will tilt, and this will definitely be an interesting game to watch.
UPDATE: PSG will be without midfielders Motta, Matuidi and Verratti
PSG: Trapp, Sirigu, Maxwell, Kurzawa, Silva, Luiz, Marquinhos, Van Der Wiel, Kimpembe, Stambouli, Rabiot, N’kunku, Pastore, Lucas, Di Maria, Cavani, Ibrahimovic, Augustin
