Despite winning the Ligue 1 title for the sixth time in seven years, the end to Paris Saint-Germain’s season has not gone as planned.

Thomas Tuchel’s men have won just one of their last seven matches in all competitions, losing four of those including the French Cup final to Rennes on penalties despite leading 2-0.

The champions head to mid-table Angers on Saturday afternoon looking to arrest their winless streak of four games, with 888Sport making them 13/25 (1.52) to claim three points at Stade Raymond Kopa.

It is very difficult to get PSG onside at such short odds, not just for their lack of form on the pitch - but also their disciplinary issues.

There appears to be complete disarray surrounding the team in the wake of Kylian Mbappe’s red card in the French Cup final and Neymar’s three-match suspension for punching a Rennes fan after the defeat.

The Brazilian’s ban does not start until after this match and has been appealed, but it remains to be seen how much that will impact his mindset on Saturday, whilst this game represents the final match of Mbappe’s suspension.

With that in mind, the 17/4 (5.25) on Angers to claim victory over the capital side could be a popular wager but the double chance price of 6/4 (2.50) on a home win or a draw looks too good to miss.

The side from the west of France sit in 12th place in Ligue 1 but have lost just four home matches all season, avoiding defeat in eight of their 10 home games against clubs currently above them.

Moreover, Angers are unbeaten in their last seven league matches at Stade Raymond Kopa and the seven clean sheets they have kept in front of their own fans is the third-highest in the division.

888Sport's 6/4 (2.50) price, then, on Angers to win or draw against champions PSG on Saturday afternoon looks great value for punters.
