Paris Saint-Germain vs Strasbourg Match Prediction: August 14, 2021
August 14, 2021 10:00 pm
PSG have been in the news all week for signing the legend, Lionel Messi, earlier this week for two years after an end to his contract at Barcelona, where he played for 21 years. All eyes are on the French giants as they now boast of a squad with Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe. They meet with Strasbourg at the Parc des Prince for their second game this season.
The Parisians have launched their 2021/22 season campaign with a struggling away 2-1 win over Troyes on Saturday with goals from Icardi and Hakimi. They will have to maintain focus to keep consistency as they have produced displays in their last three games that haven’t been pretty stellar. They enter the fixture with a 2-all draw against Sevilla and a 1-0 win over Orléans.
They have managed to keep only one clean sheet in their last six games, scoring less than two goals in any fixtures. They are currently 4th on the log, but it’s only just the beginning of a season pregnant with possibilities for PSG. They also do not have to worry about being without a player as none has any injury or suspension problems.
We also know that Messi has asked to be part of the team that will take on Strasbourg. Strasbourg will enter this game eating a humble pie, having lost by two goals to Angers on the first day of the league. Although they dominated possession in that encounter and passing, they failed in creating chances and executing the few ones to find the back of the net.
They have only won two out of their last eight fixtures. Out of their previous five games, three of them have been over-5 goal encounters. However, they have a solid away record; they haven’t lost a game in their last six away fixtures and only lost one of the previous nine games. They currently have no injury or suspension problems in the team.
Match Prediction and Odds
With the frenzy it brings to have a Worldstar player on the team, the new signing will boost morale for the Parisian as they overcome the current runt and give a high-scoring display. They also have a more complete team and better tactics; PSG likely wins this challenge.
|1×2 Win||Double Chance|
|PSG||1.22||1.06 or 1.1|
