  • Sochaux have been plagued with injuries with close to half of their starting line-up out for successive matches. Hervé Renard’s man-management has been spot on and Emmanuel Mayuka has outplayed out of his skin, but Sochaux still lag in last place in Ligue 1. They won’t be expecting much here.
  • Sochaux have conceded the highest tally of goals away from home (22) in Ligue 1. Laurent Blanc will know that and he is expected to take full advantage, starting an attacking trio of Ezequiel Lavezzi, Edinson Cavani, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
  • Roy Contout and Sebastien Corchia form a decent pair on the right side for Les Lionceaux. If the away side are to take anything from this match, they will need big performances from those two.

Paris Saint Germain 3 - 1 Sochaux
