PSG vs Strasbourg, Ligue 1, 14.08.2021

The attention of the football world has been on PSG over the last week or so following their signing of Lionel Messi after he parted ways with Barcelona. With the dust settling, PSG will now have to channel their energies to the pitch when they host Strasbourg at the Parc des Princes on Saturday.

Whilst Messi may not necessarily feature here, PSG still have a galaxy of stars in their squad that should be good enough to take care of business before the Argentine star can make his long-awaited debut.

For this Ligue 1 match preview, we will turn our attention to our EXCLUSIVE Melbet Welcome Bonus who have some interesting betting options and prices.

PSG

PSG have had by far the best summer signings in the world. This window has brought them some good tidings. Messi obviously stole the headlines but the likes of Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, Wijnaldum and AC Milan keeper Donnarumma are all very solid pieces that have been added onto a team that already had a bunch of superstars like Neymar and Mbappe.

It is clear that the Qatari owners were not satisfied with playing second fiddle in the domestic league to eventual winners Lille and they are intent on not only reclaiming the title but also go all out for the one piece of silverware that is missing in their cabinet: the UEFA Champions League.

The Parisians looked shaky in their opener against Troyes but did just enough to pick up a 2-1 win. A lot more is expected of them not just this weekend but in weeks and months to come.

STRASBOURG

Strasbourg are on the opposite end of the spectrum. They have struggled to establish themselves in the top flight since returning back in 2017. Last season, they survived relegation by a whisker, finishing 15th on the log, just two points clear of relegation. They might be involved in that relegation dogfight again this season if the 2-0 loss to Angers on opening day is any indication.

Newly appointed coach Julien Stephan, who took up the job after a successful showing at Rennes, has his work cut out against a team that everyone expects to steamroll their way through the domestic league. He may well have to wait for his first points of the season.

PSG VS STRASBOURG

When these two teams met last season, PSG easily won 4-0 and 4-1. They are unbeaten in their 30 Ligue 1 home games against Strasbourg – which is a French top-flight record for one team at home against a specific team. With PSG catching flak for a rather pedestrian display last weekend, despite the win, we can expect some backlash here against one of their favorite customers. We are backing them to take control of the game early and pick up a comfortable win at the final whistle. We are therefore picking them to win at halftime and fulltime @ 1.57 as the first of our Ligue 1 betting tips today.

Strasbourg looked horrible in their opener. They not only lost to Angers but could only muster a single shot on target in that game. This is going to be an even more difficult game for them and scoring chances will come at a premium here. PSG will dominate possession from the get-go and their improved defence will be keen to record their first clean sheet of the season in the capital which we fancy them to do. Melbet have that priced @ 1.85 and we are snapping it up for our final tip here.
