PSG vs Atlético de Madrid Prediction Today
On Saturday, July 28, the Parisian team was thrashed by Arsenal, now led by Unai Emery, a coach fired by Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season. It took 5 to 1. Before, also by the International Champions Cup, the equipment had caught of Bayern of Munich by 3 to 1.
With this, he has accumulated three consecutive defeats in this initial phase of preparation. Before competing for the ICC, PSG played two friendlies. He won the first, 1-0, before Sainte-Genevieve and then lost 4-2 to Chambly.
Despite the sequence of failures, the results are justifiable. After all, the team can not count on its main players, who have gained time after the World Cup. In this group are, for example, the trio of attackers formed by the French Mbappé, the Brazilian Neymar and the Uruguayan Cavani.
The expectation is that all of them are available for the match that will officially open the season. Next Saturday, August 4, PSG will compete for the French Supercup title with Monaco. It will be the first real test for the German Thomas Tuchel, his new commander, who had to resort to a series of athletes from the base divisions to put PSG on the field in the International Champions Cup.
The performance of the athletes in the tournament can not be considered surprising, since the team can not be considered exemplary in the training work of athletes. Having powerful investors, you prefer to hire players from other clubs.
Atletico de Madrid suffers from the same problem early in the season. You still can not use some of your top athletes. The biggest name of this group certainly is the striker Antoine Griezmann, world champion in Russia with France.
However, the Spanish team has a very strong job with young players and, coupled with a game standard established many years ago, achieved a better result in the match against Arsenal, their first in the competition. The game ended in a 1-1 draw at regular time and was beaten by the Madrid team on penalties.
With this, Atletico added two points in the standings and still has chances of getting the title of the friendly tournament, which is led by Borussia Dortmund. The German team accumulated seven of the nine possible points. The Madrid team can reach eight points, as well as Paris Saint-Germain, will still face Italy’s Internazionale in their final game of the tournament on 11 August.
Until then, coach Diego Simeone will most likely be able to count on all the athletes who are considered holders, since the first official match of Atletico Madrid in the season will be on August 15 against Real Madrid for the European Super Cup.
Before the duel against the Milanese team, Atletico still scheduled two friendly matches. On August 5 he will test his forces with Stuttgart, Germany, and three days later he will face Italy’s Cagliari.
