PSG are back in action with another important Ligue 1 fixture after the international break as they host a formidable Angers side at the Parc des Princes on Saturday. PSG have built an exceptional squad this year and hold a distinct upper hand going into this game.
Angers are in fourth place in the Ligue 1 standings at the moment and have exceeded expectations over the past year. The away side can pack a punch on its day and edged Metz to an important 3-2 league victory earlier this month.
PSG, on the other hand, suffered a shocking 2-0 defeat against Rennes in their previous game and have a few issues to address going into this game. The French giants are intent on winning the league title this season and will want to keep their place at the top of the table this year.
