PSG will face Saint Etienne in the quarter-finals of the French League Cup at the Parc des Princes Stadium on Wednesday (01/08/2020) at 8:05 p.m. ( UK Time).
Thomas Tuchel is ready to lose the best power to get the big four Coupe de la Ligue tickets. PSG has very sufficient capital when entertaining Saint Etienne. In the last three meetings, PSG always won and even recorded clean sheets.
Saint Etienne was last able to draw against Les Parisiens on April 6, 2018 (1-1). In addition, PSG is in a trend of good performance, which is packing 5 wins in the latest 5 matches. Even the most recent match, Edison Cavani won big with a score of 0-6 when hosted Linas-Montlhery in the competition coupe de France on January 6, 2020, then.
However, Tuchel did not underestimate the opponent. In a press conference session, he said Saint Etienne would not be easy for them to defeat. The PSG squad is required to give the best on the field if you want to get a win.
‘The match will not be easy because Saint Etienne is a balanced team on all fronts, united and can play defensively well. For us, this is an important match to win. This is a big challenge for us but I think the players are ready,’ explained Tuchel.
The victory will be felt more important for PSG to win this event again. As is known, the team from the French capital won five successive French League Cup titles from 2014 to 2018.
However, last year the title was won by Strasbourg. PSG itself foundered from Guingamp in the quarter-finals. Last year’s defeat of Guingamp was a separate lesson for Neymar and friends.
Because they are currently in a phase where they fall last year. At that time, PSG lost to Guingamp at home and the match against Saint Etienne will also be held in Paris as well.
Meanwhile, Claude Puel as Saint Etienne’s coach will try to give his best on the field. The former Southampton coach seems to understand well how his team will play in the game later. Moreover, his team is very difficult to match the PSG game in the last three meetings.
‘The match will be a good challenge for us. We are ready to compete with PSG luck,’ Puel said.
