PSG-LENS. Shock of the 3rd day of Ligue 1 where Paris Saint-Germain receives Racing Club de Lens this Saturday evening. Time, TV broadcast... Discover all the information on this French championship gala poster.
Will Paris Saint-Germain finally start its season? After two draws against Lorient and Toulouse, Luis Enrique's players have yet to win in Ligue 1. Facing Lens this Saturday evening, what could be better than facing his runner-up from last season to finally regain a taste for success? If the Parisian coach will have to do without Nuno Mendes, Juan Bernat or Nordi Mukiele and Lee Kang-In in particular, Gonçalo Ramos is uncertain after muscle discomfort. The Spaniard could nevertheless rely on his two stars in attack, Ousmane Dembélé and Kylian Mbappé who should play their first minutes at the Parc des Princes this season. In a press conference, Luis Enrique warned his players before facing the Lensois: "Lens didn't start their season very well either. But it's very clear to me that Lens is one of the best teams in L1. I really like the way they work, both in attack and in defense I really like their coach (Franck Haise), I consider it a Champions League game. It's a team that puts a lot of pace both attacking and defending, which generates chances. I think it will be a pivotal game for both teams. I hope we win this game and we will be able to celebrate with our supporters but I repeat it will be difficult."
As for the Sang et Or, the start of the season is not ideal either with an inaugural defeat against Brest and a draw against Stade Rennais. In Paris, Lens has the opportunity to officially launch its season with a prestigious victory. Franck Haise will be able to rely on his new flagship recruit, Elye Wahi while Jimmy Cabot or El Aynoui or Wesley Saïd are absent. In a press conference, the Lensois coach did not hide that he was counting on his new striker: "We have to get him back physically, explains Haise. His preparation was cut short with the Euro Espoirs. In addition, he was about to leave, so he didn't have any classic preparation. We've seen the physical data, we can see that he's a bit lacking compared to what we did. "He is able to start a match or finish it, it's me who will decide. I have some answers. He will be with us in Paris and not to visit the capital."
The kick-off of the match of the 3rd day of Ligue 1 between Paris Saint-Germain and Racing Club de Lens is scheduled for Saturday August 26 at 9:00 p.m. at the Parc des Princes in Paris (France). François Letexier will be the referee of the clash.
