Angers vs Paris Saint Germain
League: French Cup Final
Date: Saturday, 27th May 2017
Time: Kick off at 21:00
Venue: Stade de France
Angers SCO has its home in the city of Angers, located in the west of France. In the 2014/2015 season, the team made the climb to the highest French football league and was able to secure the remainder of Ligue 1 in this season. Out of the 38 games in the league, Angers SCO won 46 points and won a calming lead of 10 points on a descent place and landed on a decent 12th place. In the past few weeks the coach of coach Stephane Moulin was able to take a 1: 1 draw with FC Lorient on the 36th matchday and then there were 2 more wins for Angers. Angers SCO won 2-0 in the away game at Tabellendritten Nizza with a strong performance and after goals from Cheikh N’Doye and Karl Toko Ekambi.
On the final day of the match, Angers also had a good time and said goodbye to Montpellier with a 2-0 win over the 12,000 spectators at the Jean-Bouin stadium. In this match, however, Jonathan Bamba and Flavien Tait were in the final stages of the match for a deserved home win. A special gift was made by Angers SCO in the Coupe de France, where the team had to deal with the EA Guingamp in the semi-final. Angers SCO had a 1: 0 lead in the first round and a goal from Angers, and Angers scored the decisive goal for Angers 2-0 and made the final final.
The team of coach Stephane Moulin has played a strong season as measured by the possibilities of the club and can also convince in the last games in the league. For this reason the outsider Angers SCO will surely be confident in the final round of the French Cup against Paris. The coach can not put the injured Mateo Pavlovic and Abdoulaye Bamba.
Provisional lineup: Letellier; Manceau, Martinez, Traore, Cissokho; Mangani, Santamaria, N’Doye; Ekambi, Diechiou, Pepe
Paris SG :
At Paris Saint Germain the former coach Laurent Blanc had to go after the last season, because the holders of the club was not enough to win the French championship. For this reason, the Spanish success driver Unai Emery has been brought to the French capital to attack internationally. However, the at leastest in this season has not really worked out and Paris has already excelled in the round of the Champions League. It looked really good after 4: 0 in the first leg against Barca, but in Barcelona, the team of coach Unai Emery conceded a 6: 1 defeat which was not considered possible and still failed in the last 16 of the royal class.
In the French league it was also not so round for Paris, the title defense in Ligue 1 missed and behind the AS Monaco this time with the second table place had been satisfied. On the last day of the match, PSG were not able to convince them completely in the match with SM Caen and had to contend with a 1-1 draw, despite an early 1-0 lead through Adrien Rabot. After this unsatisfactory season, it would therefore be all the more important for the team to be able to catch the Coupe de la Ligue next weekend at least after the Coupe de France. In the semi-finals of this competition, PSG also made a strong performance by Julian Draxler 5-0 against AS Monaco in the final.
At Paris Saint Germain the coach Unai Emery is also under great pressure after a weak season. It would certainly be helpful for the Spanish coach if he could at least win the Coupe de France with his team on Saturday. It is also questionable whether the last-beaten Meunier, Thiago Silva and Verrati can be re-used at the Cup final.
Provisional lineup: Trapp; Maxwell, Silva, Marquinhos, Meunier; Matuidi, Motta, Verrati; Draxler, Cavani, Lucas
