Key Stat: In the last eight games between these two teams, PSG have won seven and drawn one, and conceded just three goals.
Expert Verdict: Paris Saint-Germain have won two from two so far in Ligue 1, as expected, and Angers are unlikely to be the team to end that winning start. Having lost both their first two matches, and having barely even scored against PSG in recent matches between the two, there is not a lot of reason for them to sense an upset. PSG should win this, and win it comfortably.
Paris Saint Germain vs Angers Prediction & Betting Tips
Paris Saint Germain vs Angers Head-to-Head Stats
Paris Saint-Germain have never lost to Angers, winning seven of their last eight matches against them and drawing the other. Last season, Kylian Mbappe scored twice in a 2-1 PSG win at the Parc des Princes despite Thiago Motta seeing red after just 16 minutes for the hosts. Mbappe also scored twice in the earlier fixture at Angers, with Julian Draxler and an Edinson Cavani double ensuring PSG won 5-0.
PSG vs ANG Betting Tips
Paris Saint-Germain have never lost to Angers and it is hard to imagine them starting when they welcome them to the Parc des Princes this week.
The Ligue 1 leaders have opted for a youthful line-up at the start of the season, having been away with a very young and inexperienced squad during pre-season. By adding Thiago Silva and Marquinhos to that line-up at the back, and Neymar and Kylian Mbappe up front, they have added the star power that has made the difference from a team beaten heavily in Singapore by Arsenal to the team which has started the new Ligue 1 season in great form.
Angers, on the other hand, blew a 3-1 lead in their first game and a late defeat to Rennes last time out will not have improved their mood.
A trip to PSG, where they have never won and lost against ten men last season, is unlikely to improve matters – though at least they are getting back to full strength now.
Nevertheless, Kylian Mbappe – who scored twice last week, and twice in both games against Angers last season – will fancy his chances of adding to his tally.
Neymar alongside him will also be keen to continue his goalscoring start to the new season and it all adds up to what could be a very difficult afternoon for Angers.
Angers vs PSG Recommended bets with odds
Paris Saint-Germain are huge odds-on favourites to continue their winning start to the season and winning record in this fixture.
Betway are offering 1/11 on a home win and that’s quite high considering some of the other odds out there.
Goals are expected – PSG put five past Angers in one of their meetings last season – and a PSG win and over 3.5 goals will return a best price of 3/4 with Betway.
Despite scoring twice in his opening game of the season, and netting twice in both of PSG’s wins against Angers last season, you can get 9/4 with Betfair and Paddy Power on Kylian Mbappe scoring two or more goals on Saturday.
Neymar, meanwhile, is a best price of 11/10 with Bet365 to score two or more – he has scored once in each of PSG’s two wins so far.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Angers Prediction
Paris Saint-Germain have a dominant record in this fixture and it is hard to see anything but a big PSG win. Kylian Mbappe loves this fixture, and the French teenager can be expected to add to his two goals from last week.
