Paris Saint-Germain host RC Strasbourg for their first home fixture of their 2021-22 Ligue 1 campaign on Sunday, August 15, at the Parc des Princes in Paris.
PSG, who signed the likes of Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Lionel Messi on a free transfer in the transfer window, will start as the outright favourites in the fixture. That said, fitness concerns are likely to rule out the aforementioned trio from being a part of the matchday squad against Strasbourg.
The PSG vs RC Strasbourg game in Ligue 1 will be played at 12.30 AM IST on Sunday, August 15.
PSG vs STS Dream11 prediction
It certainly is a no-brainer that Paris Saint-Germain will start as the outright favourites to win the game against RC Strasbourg. Backing this prediction is the fact that Strasbourg have never won a game at the Parc des Princes, and they trail 7-28 in the head-to-head record in Ligue 1.
As far as the score prediction goes, PSG could ease to a 3-0 win on Sunday, August 15.
PSG vs STS Dream11 team tips for Ligue 1
Top tip: Best forward
Mauro Icardi is likely to start in a central role in the upcoming PSG vs RCSA clash in Ligue 1. The Argentine forward, who has scored 34 times in 64 games since his £45 million permanent transfer to Paris in 2020, scored the winner in the 2-1 victory over Troyes on Matchday 1. With Neymar and Lionel Messi still not in the clear for a start, the 28-year-old is poised to hit top form and reward his fantasy football owners.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Among the latest arrivals, Georginio Wijnaldum is likely to make his competitive league debut for PSG against Strasbourg on Sunday, August 15. The Dutch midfielder can operate all around the engine room, and is poised to forge a strong partnership with Ander Herrera and Julian Draxler in PSG’s 4-3-3 formation.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Achraf Hakimi’s signature will provide Paris Saint-Germain with a strong cover on the right flank when they push forward offensively against Strasbourg. The former Inter and Real Madrid star netted the equalizer in PSG’s come-from-behind 2-1 win at Troyes.
Keylor Navas will be the first-choice pick as a goalkeeper for the PSG vs Strasbourg clash in Ligue 1. The Costa Rican custodian, who has kept 27 clean sheets in 51 league games, will prioritise a clean sheet in PSG’s first home game of the 2021-22 season on Sunday, August 15.
