PSG - Angers Finale Coupe de France 27-05-2017

PSG vs Angers - Competition: Final Coupe de France
Date: 27 May 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:00 GMT
Venue: Stade de France, Paris.

If PSG, the title defender of the French Cup, could have chosen its opponent in the final, it probably wouldn’t chose an easier team than it is SCO Angers team, given that this season PSG team routinely defeated it two times by 2-0. However, all what it counts now is this final match that decided who wins the title. Angers team could recently only dream being in such situation so PSG team must be very careful and maximally focused if they want to win their third title in a row in the French national Cup on Saturday evening.
That would, alongside title won in the League Cup, be a partial satisfaction for the title lost in the league. PSG team lost it to its rival Monaco, which had 08 more in the end. PSG defeated FC Monaco in the final of League Cup by 4-1, while it did the same in the semi-final of the national Cup as it won by even 5-0. It has to be added to this that FC Monaco played with reserve team that match due to obligations in the UEFA Champions League. Regarding the team that PSG will field against Angers team it should be said that due to injuries out of action are: defenders Meunier and Kurzawa, midfielder Krychowiak and forward Ben Arfa, while not fully recovered midfielder, Verratti, is questionable.
Since the game will take place at the national stadium, Stade de France, Paris, everyone in Angers ranks is very much aware that must play the best ever this season if the team want to stay on pair with PSG. It was encouraging for Angers coach, Moulin, that his team won last two league games: away against Nice and at home against Montpellier, despite that Angers was safe in the middle of table.
Angers team achieved this historic success, to play in the final of major competition, after it eliminated at home even three Ligue 1 teams which are: Caen, Bordeaux and Guingamp, while in earlier phases it won away lower-league: Granville and Bastia. This means that Angers way toward the final was far easier than of PSG team. Regarding situation with the team, still out of action are: injured defenders, Andreu and Martinez, midfielder, Saihi, and forward, Ketkeophomphone.

Probable lineups:

PSG: Areola – Aurier, Marquinhos, Silva, Maxwell – Rabiot, Motta, Matuidi – di Maria, Cavani, Draxler
SCO Angers: Letellier – Cissokho, Traore, Thomas, Manceau – Ndoye, Santamaria, Mangani – Pepe, Diedhiou, Toko Ekambi
