Caen vs PSG: Preview and Prediction
Caen vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 16th September
Kick Off: 19:45 BST
Venue: Stade Michel-d’Ornano (Caen).
PSG have not won a game in any competition for three games now and there are some worries in the camp that the French champions are not following the right path under new coach Unai Emery. In midweek the club could only draw 1-1 against Arsenal in the Champions League after striker Edinson Cavani who put them ahead missed several chances to kill the game off. Just how bad are PSG missing Zlatan Ibrahimovic? This game at Caen has become the real focus now in Ligue 1 any more dropped points and there will be huge pressure already on Emery’s shoulders.
Simply put Caen have been great at home and poor away, because at home they have done their job and got two wins from two after beating Lorient and Bastia.
Caen vs PSG: Head-to-Head Stats
PSG have scored 9 goals and conceded 0 in their last two games versus Caen. Away from home PSG have won the last two games and also kept clean sheets. They have also proven that they can beat their opponent effectively.
Caen last won this fixture at home 8 years ago and times have changed plenty since then. From the last 8 fixtures between these two. And 7 of those have finished with at least 3 goals and over.
Caen vs PSG: Prediction
Caen will want to start this game threatening the PSG goal- the French champions can be there for the taking early on as all of the pressure is on them. Inevitably PSG will improve as the game goes on and they should take all three points with minimal fuss, but they will be made to suffer in the opening exchanges.
Expect Cavani to make amends for some horrific misses in the Champions League.
