Another game here over the weekend where we have the better team playing away from home. Paris St Germaine have won six games on the trot and they were scintillating midweek in the Champions League scoring five with Ibrahimovich netting four and Cavani scoring the other one. Laurent Blanc has this Paris team ticking over right now and they are like a well oiled machine. With so many attacking players on their books there is a wealth of options for Blanc right now but he has two of the best strikers on the planet in Ibrahimovich and Cavani and will be looking to these two tomorrow night in Saint Etienne.
Saint Etienne have been going through a rough patch they have lost three of their last five in all competitions but have been competitive in all those games losing by the minimum in each of the three. Manager Galtier will look to keep it tight and pack the midfield to try to prevent Paris from having any space. Hamouma, Corgnet and Le Moine will be the key for the midfield of St Etienne but this game could be one beyond their capabilities.
There have been a few games this weekend that I've really liked and this is another one, a year ago I would have said Paris were too inconsistant to commit to away from home but such has been the impressive form of Ibrahimovich and Cavani that I cant say anything against PSG. I am taking the Parisians to do the business here at a generous 4/5 . Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
