Wednesday sees French giants Paris St. Germain back in action against third-tier Le Mans at the Ooredoo Training Center.
Paris St. Germain are expected to use the game as little more than an early warm-up for the 2021-22 season, while Le Mans will be hoping for a big upset.
Paris St. Germain vs Le Mans Head-to-Head
Paris St. Germain are expected to make another push at both the Ligue 1 title and the Champions League in the 2021-22 season, after their 2020-21 campaign ended in disappointing fashion.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side lost their league title to Lille, while they were eliminated from the Champions League by Manchester City.
PSG did win their final three games of the campaign, but it was scant consolation for what was essentially a season of failure.
They’ve already looked to strengthen their squad with a number of signings. However, many of their big names are unlikely to play here due to their involvement in Euro 2020 or the 2021 Copa America.
Meanwhile, Le Mans finished fourth in France’s third tier. They narrowly missed out on promotion to Ligue 2 after their controversial relegation when the 2019-20 campaign was curtailed due to COVID-19.
Despite their failure to regain their Ligue 2 status, Le Mans did finish the 2020-21 season strongly, ending with an unbeaten run of seven games.
The last time PSG faced off with Le Mans, they picked up a comfortable 1-4 victory in the 2019-20 edition of the Coupe de France. Le Mans last defeated PSG way back in 2010.
