Angers entertain Paris Saint-Germain in their Ligue 1 fixture at the Raymond Kopa Stadium on Saturday night.

The hosts are currently in the seventh place in the standings with 30 points. The reigning champions find themselves trailing Lyon at the top of the table by a point.

PSG, who recently won the Trophée des Champions, are unbeaten in their last five league games and will be looking to avoid dropping points here as well.

They are the highest-scoring side in the French top-flight and have also conceded the least goals.

The hosts have not kept a clean sheet in their last five outings and might struggle to contain PSG, who are now almost back to full strength with Neymar also returning to the fold.

We predict an easy win for the visitors here.

Prediction: Angers 1-3 Paris Saint-Germain.
