Paris Saint-Germain are now very close to breaking the 19 year long wait for a league title. But since Marseille won their match last Saturday, it means that PSG can not secure the league title tonight. It is however almost certain that PSG will win the league if they win tonight. PSG has a fantastic goal difference which is +41 and that is 34 goals better than Marseille.
Ancelotti has announched this week that Zlatan Ibrahimovic and PSG must take the game just like any other. The team should remember what comes next weekend, if PSG do not play the way everyone knows they can.
Ancelotti’s future has been discussed the last few weeks and he was asked if he would announce his future if there is a win tonight. Ancelotti said again
– Nothing is clear if we win tonight, even though it looks really good, I tell my decision a little later.
It looks like we have to wait another week or two until we can get some information on the future for Ancelotti.
The last league match was once again a weak effort by PSG and again it was against Evian. Paris Saint-Germain was eliminated from the cup by Evian just 2 weeks ago. The loss against Evian in the cup caused some problems in PSG. There was a lot of fans that were dissapointed on the loss.
In the league however Paris Saint-Germain managed to get themselves a 1-0 victory, but it was an expensive win. During the game Verratti got a red card, Beckham came on in the second half and only needed ten minutes before the referee showed the red card to Beckham.
After the match a fight broke out and there was a lot of talk about Sirigu would get a 8 match ban. This week French football league’s disciplinary committee came out with the ruling and Verratti and Sirigu got a two match ban and Beckham got a one match ban. In the game against Evian Zlatan Ibrahimovic also had a big chance which he missed completely.
Nothing else than a win will matter for PSG tonight. If Paris Saint-Germain manage to win they have more or less secured the league. This due to a goal difference of +34 against Marseille.
There have been some discussion if Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play tonights game. Ancelotti has today reassured the fans and confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play on Sunday night.
