Preview: Auxerre vs. Paris Saint-Germain – Predicted Lineups and Key Players
As the French Ligue 2 gets closer to its climax, teams are fighting for the ultimate glory, promotion to the top-tier Ligue 1. The game between Auxerre and Paris Saint-Germain is going to be the highlight of the week. The former has been in good form recently, while the latter is trying to keep up with league leaders Lille OSC.
Mauricio Pochettino will likely stick with his favourite 4-2-3-1 formation. With several key players out, it’s a perfect opportunity for Ander Herrera to start in midfield alongside Idrissa Gueye. Kylian Mbappe, the French star, will undoubtedly lead the line, supported by the likes of Di Maria, Rafinha, and Neymar.
Predicted Starting XI: Navas; Florenzi, Diallo, Kimpembe, Bakker; Herrera, Gueye; Di Maria, Rafinha, Neymar; Mbappe.
The home team is expected to field a more defensive lineup playing a 4-4-2 formation. Mathias Autret is their key player and he is one of the most creative players of the squad. He is likely to be a part of the midfield setup and will be responsible for creating chances up front with the help of Mickael Le Bihan.
Predicted Starting XI: Léon; Arcus, Jubal, Coeff, Bernard; Trichard, Autret, Touré, Hein; Le Bihan, Sorgic.
Kylian Mbappe is the obvious key player for PSG. He is leading the line with his electrifying pace and skills, and has scored 20 goals in Ligue 1 this season so far. Another player to keep an eye on is Angel Di Maria. The Argentine winger can create chances out of nothing and his set-piece deliveries are among the best in the world.
Mathias Autret is the creative midfielder for the home team. He has assisted five goals and has scored six goals in the 27 appearances in Ligue 2. Mickael Le Bihan is their primary goal scorer, having scored ten goals this campaign.
