FRANCE ... LIGUE CUP
PARIS ST GERMAIN - VALENCIENNES
I have to feel that Paul le Guen's side will be keen to get some silverware on board and this is the best chance they will get this season.They finally got the monkey off their back, with a 3-0 win over Lens at the weekend, their first league win on home soil of the season.On the road, they have been showing Champions League form, so the lack of success on home soil , is hard to explain. Anyway, they will want to get a little run going at the Parc des Princes and to that end, PLG has named his strongest squad, see below, with only Digard, who left the field injured in the first half against Lens, missing.
The visitors are having a fantastic season and are pressing for an unlikely CL spot, but that is almost entirely down to their home form, away, they have a 1-3-6 record and have scored just 5 goals, none in the last 3. Player for player ,I feel that they are clearly inferior to PSG, who are looking for a 4th win in 5 starts and will probably get it.
5 points PSG -1/2 ball 1.98 asian line.
