PSG resumes quest for glory vs Strasbourg

Paris Saint-Germain continue to look for their glory as they resume their season in the France Ligue 1, meeting RC Strasbourg for this match. Currently at the top of the league table, PSG eyes to continue reaching for their glory once again in the tournament. Strasbourg on the other hand is in the 19th spot of the league table with 11 points on their name. However, they are currently at the bottom of the standings, so they are in need of points to remain in the contest. This meeting will be on December 29, 2022, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), with PSG hosting this match.

Across all competitions, these two teams already met for 70 matches, and it was the hosts who dominated those meetings. The hosts have 38 wins against the visitors, compared to the 13 wins of the hosts, and the remaining games ended in draw. In addition, the hosts are currently undefeated in their last 10 meetings, winning seven. This season, the visitors only had one win all season, the fewest of any clubs in Ligue 1. This is the record they want to end, as they want to finally pick up wins and go on winning ways.

This squad have been phenomenal this season, which is no longer surprising since they are the defending champions in the tournament. In fact, they are currently unbeaten this season, winning their last five league games. Additionally, on their last game, they had a dominating 5-0 win against Auxerre. In their last three home games, they already had 10 goals. Additionally, they remains unbeaten at home, no matter what the competition is. This proves that this squad knows to maximize their home advantage. Coming into this game, they are hoping to retain their unbeaten record at home.

PSG has a lot of players who played in the World Cup, specifically coming from teams who played in the Finals. Lionel Messi is not yet back for PSG, still enjoying his break as a champion, but Kylian Mbappe already returned for this squad. Danilo Pereira sustained injury, but he is seen to be training for PSG, so he is a doubt in this game. Mendes and Kimpembe are both out due to injuries.

Strasbourg are really struggling this season, and are currently winless in their last five league matches. Their last meeting ended with a 1-1 draw against Lorient. No matter what competition is, they are really feeling unlucky as they continue to struggle. As they will be playing on the road, they might be a little worried. In fact, across all competitions, their only win came on the road, but that was last October. In their last three away games, they scored at least two goals. As they meet with the top team in this match, they are hoping to at least not get a defeat here.

Following the scandal he was involved in, Alexander Djiku is undergoing a one-match ban in this match. At some point, this could be an advantage for him as this will give him more time to recover from the World Cup.

Prediction:

Paris Saint-Germain (3.5)
