After writing another page in his book of vexames, Paris Saint-Germain has this Wednesday, April 17, the opportunity to conquer, with six rounds of anticipation, the title of the French Championship version 2018/2019. It will face in game that was postponed of the twenty-eighth day, the Nantes. The match will be held at the stadium of la Beaujoire in Nantes. The beginning is scheduled for 14h (Brasília time).
After the match, for the first time after the end of the year stoppage of Ligue 1 all 20 participants in the dispute will have the same number of clashes. There will be six rounds to complete the table of the tournament that leads champion and vice to the Champions League of Europe. The third-placed can also reach there, but they need to play the qualifiers. The fourth placed follows for Europa League.The relegation zone has the last three classified in the table, but is divided into two categories. The worst two go straight to Ligue 2. The third-last buttress still has the opportunity to play in the knockout phase with the third-placed Second Division to try to avoid the decline.
In the face of all these possibilities, Nantes has nothing more to do in this final stretch of season than to meet the predetermined table. He does not fight for a place in tournaments in international competitions, nor does he face a real threat of relegation.Despite this lack of goals, the team produced an unexpected result on Friday, April 12, for the thirty-second round. After four straight defeats, they beat Lyon, who are in contention for the runners-up, 2-1.It reached, in this way, the level of 34 points (nine wins, seven draws and 15 losses). It ranks 15th in the standings. He has nine points more than Dijon, eighteenth and first team in the sticking region. It’s a gigantic difference to the scoring pattern of the Z3 teams.As principal, your numbers are a bit better. Nantes is the thirteenth best player in Ligue 1. Of the 45 points they played in their stadium, they won 22 (six wins, four draws and five losses). He scored 26 goals and suffered 19.The injury problems for Wednesday’s match are midfielder Valentin Eysseric (five games in the 2018/2019 version, one goal) and striker Antonio Mance (four games, no goal).
Eliminated by Manchester United, with ten home-away opponents, having won the first leg in England, 2-0, in the round of 16 of the Champions League.Eliminated from the League Cup of England by losing at home to Guingamp, who is in the relegation zone of the French League in the League Cup of France.Whoever thought that the list of vexames of Paris Saint-Germain in season 2018/2019 had finished, was deceived. On Sunday, April 14, for the thirty-second round of Ligue 1, the team were thrashed by Lille, second placed in the tournament, by 5 to 1, in the opponent’s field.In the case of the French Championship, defeat will bring losses only on the moral side. After all, there is no more how to lose the title. With 81 points (26 wins, three draws and two losses), PSG probably would not even need to score again to keep the cup. It would be enough for Lille, the 64th-ranked runner-up, not to win one of the six remaining games.However, not to leave the definition of the cup in the hands of the rival, just to win one of your commitments. After the massacre suffered on Sunday, coach Thomas Tuchel certainly wants to close the account on Wednesday. To do so, there will again be the Brazilian striker Neymar (13 games in the 2018/2019 version of the French Championship, 13 goals), which is still recovering from injury. They are also in the care of the medical department and are considered doubts for the meeting defenders Thomas Meunier (20 games, three goals) and Thiago Silva (25 games, no goal); midfielder Angel di Maria (25 games, nine goals); and striker Edinson Cavani (16 games, 17 goals).
1.Forecasting, statistics and probable teams
Nantes managed in the previous round, thanks to a 2-1 victory against Lyon, to end a series of three consecutive defeats in the championship. In addition, the players coached by Bosnian Vahid Halilhodžić gave 0-3 in the semifinal of the French Cup earlier this month, right in front of the Parisians.As a result of this unfavorable period, the “canaries” went down to the fifteenth position of the standings, with 34 points gathered after the 31 rounds played, negative goal -5, 9 wins, 7 draws and 15 defeats in Ligue 1.The host technician will not be able to rely on the services of the Brazilian prisoner Andrei Girotto on Wednesday night, suspended from the red card lost in his team’s loss, 0-1 with Toulouse.
The likely Nantes team: Tatarusanu, Pallois, Carlos, Edgar Ie, Traore, Rongier, Moutoussamy, Toure, Fabio, Coulibaly, Waris
After a 2-2 draw against Strasbourg on the “Parc des Princes”, the PSG followed the disaster with Lille, where Thomas Tuchel’s students gave up with one-to-one inconsistency, thus picking up the second step wrongly recorded in this championship edition.However, the Parisians headed out of the Ligue 1 standings, with 81 points accrued over the 31 rounds disputed, with a 17 point advantage over the next ranked Lille.The German champion of the French champion faces a long list of unavailability in the perspective of Wednesday night’s trip to Nantes, among the missing ones are the heavy names of the locker: Neymar, Cavani, Thiago Silva, or Angel di Maria, all injured. They are also joined by the Italian central midfielder Marco Verratti and the left Juan Bernat, both suspended, for the cumulus of yellow cards, respectively for the red card won in the last round of the championship.
Probable Team PSG: Buffon, Dagba, Kehrer, Kimpembe, Kurzawa, Alves, Paredes, Draxler, Diaby, Choupo-Moting, Mbappe
Football Prediction of the Day Nantes vs PSG
There is no way to imagine that PSG does not have a reaction after Sunday’s vexation. Thus, the prognosis in the success of the capital’s team is the best guessing option for this Wednesday’s match against Nantes that concludes the schedule of the twenty-eighth round of the French Championship in its 2018/2019 edition.
Bet Tips: PSG
Nantes has an excellent morale after the last round victory against Lyon. In addition, the lack of worries about maintaining the French football elite allows for a relaxed, pressure-free approach to the PSG, which, although in its absence of any pressure on the outcome, especially after the elimination of the Champions League, comes after a fierce defeat in Lille’s company, so a reaction of pride by Tuchel’s students is imminent. In conclusion, I will bet on an open game with goals, at least one on each side.
