Once again the champion of France after the stop of the French League 1 PSG adn we are not really surprised. They achieved their third consecutive title, the seventh in the last eight years. Now Paris Saint-Germain dreams of finally winning the Champions League. In this competition, the French club finished first in its group, ahead of Real Madrid, Club Bruges and Galatasaray.
They played against Dortmund in the Round of 16, PSG seemed scared in the first leg played at the Signal Iduna Park Stadium complete (2-1 defeat), before making a very solid return match at Parc des Princes in a game without public (2-0).
PSG were very convincing during their preparation matches. The Parisians easily crushed Le Havre (9-0), Beveren (7-0) and Celtic (4-0). They didn't play that well against Saint-Etienne, but they still managed to achieve the double by winning the Coupe de France (1-0) and after then the treble against Lyon in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue. But the Ile-de-France residents had to go through a penalty shoot-out to win this last trophy (0-0, 5-4 AP).
Squad wise, there is some really bad news for PSG which saw Mbappé out of the field on a stretcher after the contact with Perrin during the final of the Coupe de France. The PSG striker, however, seems to recover quickly and could return in time for this match after missing the Coupe de la Ligue final.
Last injured to date, Verratti is uncertain in the midfield. In addition, the very good Argentinian Di Maria is suspended for this meeting. Note that the main players as Thomas Meunier and Edison Cavani, as well as the young Kouassi, left on June 30 but that Thiago Silva decided to stay until the end of the European campaign. Absent during the last meetings, defenders Bernat and Diallo should be back. PSG advantage on paper but it's not enough to convince the football fans, that it will be easy against Atalanta.
