Caen vs PSG Soccer Prediction Today
For the owners of the house, paradise is very close. After all, the objectives set for the season are much more modest than those of the PSG. In fact, the goal is one: stay in Ligue 1.
With 37 points (ten wins, seven draws and 20 losses), the Caen occupies the seventeenth position, the first out of the sticking region. They are three more than Toulouse, eighteenth place.
Thus, a point is enough for the Caen to confirm their stay in the elite division of French football. In the face of the recent campaign, it seems like a complicated mission. The team left the last three matches they held with their hands shaking. He lost to Nice (4-1), Monaco (2-1) and Troyes (3-1).
Vitoria, then, has not been part of Caen’s daily life since March 4, when the team defeated Strasbourg 2-0. They have since lost eight and drawn two. However, the results of Toulouse, the only one that can overcome it in this final day, cheer the fans of Caen.
The first team in the sticking region was also defeated in their last three matches. So, if Caen can not score against PSG, there is still hope that Toulouse will not defeat the Guingamp. Will work at home. The start is scheduled for the same time.
Even loss of position does not mean immediate fall. There is still the possibility of playing a playoff as the third place in Ligue 2.
For the duel this Saturday, coach Patrice Garande will not be able to count on the midfielder Ismael Diomande (11 matches in the French Championship 2017/2018). He was sent off in the game against Nice and will have to comply with suspension. Also suspended, defender Romain Genevois (23 matches, scoreless) can not act.
There are still doubts regarding the situation of goalkeeper Remy Vercoutre (35 games) and midfielder Vicent Bessat (24 games, no goal). They are in the process of recovery from injury and depend on a new evaluation of the medical department. The examination will determine if they will be available for departure.
With the title of the French Championship guaranteed, as well as the trophies of the League Cup and the French Cup, the PSG arrives at the end of the season as if it had failed. Fruit of the fall in the last 16 of the Champions League against Real Madrid.
Reaching the continental title is an obsession for club leadership. As this was not achieved, coach Unai Emery was dismissed. He will make his last game in charge of the team this Saturday. German Thomas Tuchel, former Borussia Dortmund, has already been announced to fill the vacancy.
This game was expected to mark the return of Brazilian striker Neymar (20 games in the 2017/2018 French Championship, 19 goals). In the final phase of surgery recovery the player ended up not being passed the exams and will only return to the field during the preparation of the Brazilian team for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. He may not even wear PSG’s shirt again. There is speculation about a possible transfer to Real Madrid.
It will not be the only downfall for the game in Caen. Also defended are Daniel Alves (25 games, one goal) and Thiago Silva (25 games, one goal); the midfielder Marco Verrati (22 games, no goal); and striker Edinson Cavani (32 games, 28 goals).
The absolute lack of interest that PSG has shown in their most recent matches shows that for the athletes the season is over. That might even open the chance for a risky guess. Even because the team lost in the previous day a long invincibility home to take 2 to 0 of Rennes. The fragility of Caen, however, causes this possibility to be cast aside.
