Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Following a 2-1 win over Lorient, PSG will be aiming to cement top position in the Ligue 1 when they host Auxerre to their Parc des Princes. Les Parisiens extended their winning run to six games in all competitions at the weekend, but Lens are still breathing down their neck in the Ligue 1 table. All Fabian Ruiz, Keylor Navas, and Presnel Kimpembe are sidelined with injuries, but Leo Messi should recover in time to take part in the last game before the World Cup break.
Auxerre, on the other hand, are sitting just above the relegation zone, but they should not be looking for points in the “City of Lights”. Given PSG’s current form, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. All Kays Ruiz-Atil, Brayann Pereira, and Youssuf M’Changama should miss out through injuries for the visiting team, while M’Baye Niang is back from suspension.
Highlighted Player (Lionel Messi):
Lionel Messi is regarded as one of the best players in the history of football. He was born on 24 June, 1987 in Rosario and he began his football career at Newell’s Old Boys. At age 10 he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency, but having realized his potential at a young age, Barcelona decided to pay for his treatment.
Messi joined Barca in 2001 and he has been playing for the Camp Nou outfit ever since. The Argentine magician has won eight La Liga trophies with Barca and he helped the Catalan giants lift no less than four Champions League titles (2005/2006, 2008/2009, 2010/2011, 2014/2015).
In the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign Messi scored 50 goals for Barca, while netting 14 goals in the 2011/2012 Champions League campaign. The five-time Golden Ball award winner has established himself as Barcelona’s all-time top scorer, but he has yet to win a trophy with Argentina national team at major tournaments. Leo Messi, though, has won Olympic Gold Medal (2008) and FIFA World Youth Championship (2005), with la Albiceleste.
