Ligue 1 this weekend sees a meeting of first and last in the French top flight with Angers heading to the Parc des Princes to meet with Paris Saint-Germain as an almighty 36 points keep the two apart before the game.
The two come into this in completely different areas in 2022/23, as PSG sit with the most points across Europe’s top five leagues, just as only Elche in La Liga and Cremonese in Serie A sit with less points than Angers across the divisions.
At the same time, however, unlike Elche and Cremonese, the struggling Ligue 1 outfit have still managed to secure two wins this campaign and score 16 goals from 17 games.
The main concern is how they’ve lost 13 games already, but Angers did edge past Strasbourg in the French Cup round of 64 after a penalty shootout victory last Sunday.
As for PSG, they eased past Chateauroux in their French Cup game, but in losing to Lens 3-1 in Ligue 1, they have now lost their unbeaten record saw the gap at the top cut to four points over second-placed Lens.
What’s more, this game should see Lionel Messi return to club action after winning the World Cup.
