PSG will be looking to move to the top of the Ligue 1 standings this weekend, as they chase a second straight win. Strasbourg will be the visitors, as they bid to end a two-game losing run in the league.
Ligue 1 Preview
It has been a rocky start to life in Paris for Luis Enrique, as his PSG side has struggled for consistency over the opening months of the campaign. However, PSG could move to the top of the league standings this weekend if they are able to pick up maximum points in front of their home fans against Strasbourg.
PSG have won half of their eight league matches this term, which includes two victories in their previous three. However, they have already allowed seven goals in their eight matches this term. They start the weekend in third, meaning that it is the ninth game this season that they are starting off top spot. This marks the first time since August 2021 that PSG haven’t been at the top of the standings at this early point of the season.
Strasbourg travel to Paris in need of a response, as they have lost each of their previous two in the league. However, they have often bounced back from setbacks in Ligue 1, as they haven’t suffered three straight defeats in the competition since November 2020.
Strasbourg landed a 1-0 win over Metz in their previous away match, and they could equal the number of away wins that they enjoyed at the end of last season under Frederic Antonetti this weekend. A victory could see the visitors move into the top five this weekend, depending on other results.
PSG vs Strasbourg Head to Head
PSG’s record against Strasbourg is incredibly reliable, as they have gone 32 home matches without defeat against their rivals. It is their best home record against a single opponent in Ligue 1. PSG have landed 25 wins over that period, with seven matches ending in draws.
PSG vs Strasbourg Prediction
It looks challenging to overlook PSG’s clear credentials this weekend. They have dominated the previous encounters between the sides, and they have looked much more resolute in the league in recent weeks. Therefore, we expect the Parisians to pick up a comfortable win on Saturday, and we could see them covering the (-2) spread.
