Paris Saint-Germain and Girondins de Bordeaux will compete on Saturday, October 1, in the eighth round of Ligue 1.
Paris Saint-Germain F.C.
French champions provided a new unpleasant surprise their fans in the last round, conceding (0-2) on the ground of Toulouse, a team they had beaten 15 times in 16 previous disputes. The defeats are inherent to any team during one season, but what astonished if in the previous round match was the low level of the game itself, Unai Emery’s students making numerous mistakes childish. Moreover, immense error made by Motta scored the second goal by TFC characterizes the entire labor. The failure is all the more worrying with both PSG has already lost this season derby against Monaco (1-3), plus failure and wrong step done at home with Saint-Etienne in dispute (1-1) when “Greens” have equalized through a goal scored in overtime.
Things were more settled in the middle of this week, Parisians winning 3-1 in the Champions League match against Ludogorets. However, neither in Bulgaria game revealed no difference between the salaries of the players that make up the two groups, Razgrad team managed to open the score and if Moti not missed a penalty at the score of 1-2, the situation could become more complicated for stars in Paris.
PSG through a difficult period, as evidenced by the international press. The ESPN published shortly after an article stands Di Maria’s pale developments, footballer should bill the game around. Among others, the newspaper said journalists talk about the fact that the South American star has not scored in the new season, managing just two assists. Also, its benefits denotes lack of involvement and concentration, things incomprehensible if a player rated at 60 million. Interestingly, Unai Emery, who was extremely radical about Ben Arfa took somehow defend Angel, without denying poor form by passing it, saying after the match with Ludogorets “talking often in the locker room about what we should do to improve things. Di Maria is a very important player for us. I trust him and I like ceilalati players to trust him. ”
So, the situation in the camp is not great champions, each game that they currently a dispute with an extra charge.
FC Girondins de Bordeaux
The situation prepared by Jocelyn Gourvennec band did not differ greatly from that of opponents in this round, meaning that volatility and sudden fluctuations of form characterizes the performances of the current season. Previous confirmed this stage, failing to confirm the success Bordeaux 3-0 at Metz (a band which at that time had three consecutive games without a goal conceded), ending in a draw, 0-0, in dispute with Caen on home.
An interesting detail if the team games Gironde department is the frequency with which the marks when it moves away, in 10 of the last 12 matches surpassing the line “over 2.5 goals”.
Those who would conclude that Bordeaux team seems different from step to step would be far from the truth, the band from southwestern France becoming one of the most unpredictable in Ligue 1.
If we judge by the fact that PSG lost only one game the last 13 played in the company of Bordeaux (winning 6 times), we can say that Parisians are advantaged by statistics. But a closer look at the duels between the two Saturday shows that guests have not lost to the “Parc des Princes” in the last three games, winning two draws and a win.
Thus, Girondins became lately a band that succeeds setbacks team in Paris.
Serge Aurier is unavailable camp hosts, while Valentin Vada Maurice-Belay and Maxime Poundje will not perform for guests from ill-health.
