    Team news & rosters

    PositionPSG roster
    Goalkeepers Rico, Donnarumma, Letellier
    Defenders Hakimi, Kimpembe, Bernat, Dagba, Kurzawa, Diallo, Kehrer, Mendes, Bitshiabu, Alloh
    Midfielders Verratti, Rafinha, Pereira, Wijnaldum, Herrera, Draxler, Gueye, Simon, Gharbi, Ebimbe, Michut, Bitumazala
    Forwards Mbappe, Icardi, Yansane

    Mauricio Pochettino’s side are blessed with such riches that arguably a second-string side like the one they will field this weekend is still stuffed to the gills with talent.

    But Sergio Ramos will still have to wait for a debut due to injury, while Lionel Messi, Neymar, Marquinhos and Keylor Navas are among the internationals for whom this game comes too early to feature.

    Predicted PSG starting XI:  Donnarumma; Hakimi, Kehrer, Kimpembe, Mendes; Gueye, Verratti, Wijnaldum; Mbappe, Icardi, Rafinha.

    PositionAngers roster
    Goalkeepers Bernardoni, Mandrea, Petkovic
    Defenders Doumbia, Ebosse, Traore, Boma, Thomas, Bamba, Manceau
    Midfielders Mendy, Mangani, Fulgini, Cabot, Boufal, Capelle, Fatar, Ounahi, Ali-Cho, Bobichon, Taibi, Lage, El Mellali
    Forwards Ninga, Bahoken, Thioub, Brahimi

    It has been a barnstorming start to the campaign at Stade Raymond Kopa, with Angers firmly in the thick of a shock European race, lying fourth as they return from the international break.

    Gerald Baticle does not have too many doubts for this crucial clash either, with Zinedine Ould Khaled the biggest concern for their trip to the capital.

    Predicted Angers starting XI: Bernardoni; Manceau, Traore, Thomas; Cabot, Mendy, Mangani, Ebosse; Boufal, Bahoken, Ali-Cho.
