What damage can Chateauroux do to the powerful PSG? Many would agree that it’s not much. However, these types of games can occasionally be the most enjoyable to play for lower division teams.
There is no expectation that they will succeed; all they can hope to do is make their supporters happy and motivate themselves for the remaining games of the season. Things do not appear to be looking too promising for Chateauroux based on their league season.
With only four victories in their last 16 games, they are in danger of being relegated, and the upcoming schedule will only make matters worse.
A matchup with PSG will be a welcome diversion before the real struggles start. Only 17 goals were scored by Chateauroux this season, and Romain Grange has three goals to his credit. It is a modestly talented team that will look to bring a lot of energy into its 17-thousand-seat stadium.
PSG’s only option in these games is to win big. Unless they completely destroy their opponent, the critics will critique their performance.
Neymar missed PSG’s match against Lens because he was serving a suspension for receiving a red card earlier in the week against Strasbourg. Both of those contests demonstrated that PSG is not in its prime.
Even though Lionel Messi is still recuperating from the World Cup, this is not an excuse for a team with such talent from head to toe. They lost to Lens in a local derby after defeating Strasbourg, who were in last place, thanks to a 95th-minute penalty.
That was PSG’s first league loss of the year, and Lens is their greatest rival for the championship.
Renato Sanches, Nuno Mendes, and Presnel Kimpembe are still out of the Galtier team’s trip to Chateauroux due to injuries.
Since some of the younger players are already on the first team and have experience competing for PSG’s U19 team in the UEFA Champions League, it’s possible that some of them will get the chance to shine!
