PSG will be looking to bounce back from defeat to Rennes when they welcome Angers to the Parc des Princes in Ligue 1 on Friday at 8pm (UK time).
Mauricio Pochettino’s band of global superstars came up short just before the international break, suffering their first league defeat of the season as Rennes executed a giantkilling, with the loss augmented by PSG’s failure to register a single shot on target. Angers meanwhile enjoyed 2021/22’s second international checkpoint feeling giddy after they entered the break followng a 3-2 win over Metz.

PSG vs Angers build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
It was a slight derailment at Roazhon Park in Brittany, but PSG remain firmly on course to dethrone Lille and reclaim their Ligue 1 crown, with the Parisian behemoth currently six points clear atop the table and coming up against a side whom they are unbeaten in their last 21 Ligue 1 games against.
Despite the historical context of this fixture weighing excessively in PSG’s favour, Gerald Baticle’s side could well feel confident of claiming an unlikely scalp. Les Scoistes travel to the City of Light fourth in the table and with just the single defeat on their 2021/22 CV. They have never been better placed to upset PSG.
- PSG (vs Rennes): Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes; Gueye, Verratti; Di Maria, Messi, Neymar, Mbappe.
- Angers (vs Metz): Bernardoni; Manceau, Traore, Thomas; Cabot, Mendy, Mangani, Ebosse; Fulgini, Cho, Boufal.
Sergio Ramos remains sidelined alongside Julian Draxler and Layvin Kurzawa for the hosts, while Angers have no major injury concerns to right home about.
Georginio Wijnaldum recently came out and revealed he is not “completely happy” at PSG following his summer move from Liverpool, with the Dutch midfielder concerned about his lack of significant playing time in the capital. So he may be afforded greater minutes here if highly-regarded man-manager Pochettino is intent on keeping the harmony balanced in his dressing room.
Wijnaldum said: “I can’t say I’m completely happy, because the situation is not what I wanted.
“But that’s football and I’ll have to learn to deal with that. I’m a fighter. I have to stay positive and work hard to turn it around.
“I have played a lot in recent years, was always fit and also did very well. This is something different and that takes getting used to.
“I was really looking forward to the new step and then this happens. It is very difficult.”

Gianluigi Donnarumma in AC Milan tattoo promise
PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was subjected to jeers and an unwelcoming reception on his return to the San Siro during the international break. Euro 2020’s Player of the Tournament traded boyhood club AC Milan for PSG in the summer on a free transfer, and the deal has not gone down well with the Rossoneri faithful, who have accused the burgeoning Italian goalkeeper of leaving their club in the lurch by departing without a fee.
Roberto Mancini’s men recently took on Spain in the Nations League semi-final, which they lost 2-1, before beating Belgium by an identical scoreline in the third place play-off. Every touch of the ball in that Spain defeat elicited whistles and boos from the San Siro terraces, with clearly no love lost between the fans and their once prized jewel. However, following the contest Donnarumma appeared on the Le lene TV show with a Milan crest printed on his forearm, and he vowed to make it a permanent one.
🗣 His message to the fans: "I will always love them. I will always have a Rossonero heart."

Towards the end of his interview, the reporter asked him: “When you get to Paris, you go to a tattoo artist and make it permanent?”
To which Donnarumma replied: “We’ll see, we’ll see… Ok, alright then!”
He continued: “I will always love them. I will always have a Rossonero heart.
“There is a bit of disappointment with the whistles. I spent eight years at Milan and it’s always an emotion to come back to San Siro. I grew up here and I remain a supporter of the club. You don’t forget eight years like that… I hope to be better welcomed next time.”
