Description: PSG Vs MET Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: PSG strive for their opening win of the season after two defeats on the bounce.
While PSG’s recent set of results can make horrid reading, its not something to dwell too much upon. The side has been rocked by Coronavirus with a bevy of players, essentially pivotal players missing out for the side owing to the pandemic.
While these set of events still don’t justify the side’s opening couple of defeats given the repertoire of players at their disposal, the side itself won’t be massively perturbed by the defeats. This is a side way superior to its opponents, a team more than capable of papering over the current cracks prevalent in the side.
However, the one thing which would have hit the side hard is their bygone 1-0 defeat to Marseille. Defeat by a rival they have hated squaring off against was a hard pill for the club to digest, something clearly palpable in the manner the team lost its head in the culminating stages of its bygone fixture.
PSG Vs MET Dream11 Probable Winner
Tempers flared as PSG knew defeat was imminent with the side engaging in a horrendous bustup with Marseille. It lead to five players being red carded in the 97th minute, a set of events indicative of a long standing issue with attitude in PSG” s ranks.
The side will be looking to disguise that when it steps out to the middle today though. In the midst of this squabble, newly promoted Metz is just the side PSG would have wanted to encounter.
Metz are yet to register a win and will go onto lose this one as well.

Dream 11 Picks
While Metz are still to find their feet in Ligue 1, the side has managed to fare off reasonably well in the defensive side of the game. The side managed to restrict Lilli from scoring for 88 minutes the last time around, something only possible due to the fortitude shown by Alexandre Oukidja.
While PSG are going to miss out on a string of players when it comes to attack, the side manages to retain its identity in defence. And with Metz yet to score in the league till now, PSG will be eyeing a cleansheet come today.
It’s one we envisage the side pulling off as well. Metz are clearly lacking in attack, a side which has rolled out languid and dreary performances ever since earning promotion to Ligue 1 2020-21.
The narrative sees us indulge in the services of PSG’s entire backline for the fixture. We have all of Colin Dagba, Thilo Kehrer, Presnel Kimpembe and Abdou Diallo being inducted from the side in our setup.
Elsewhere, with Fabien Centonze doing everything for Metz in both attack and defence against Lille, he’ll become our lone pick from the club for this one.
In a side which has offered nothing till now, Marco Verratti has managed to stand tall amongst his counterparts. The midfielder has tried to breathe life into an uninspiring attack with his ball handling helping him keep the ball rotating quickly and efficiently for PSG.
With 8 goals and 14 assists, Angel makes a foray into our side as well as well along with Pablo Sarabia with us envisaging this finally being the tie where PSG unlock their true potential in attack.
CDM Vincent Pajot will be making a foray in our Dream 11 setup from the visiting team with the tenacious midfielder staving off a string of attacking plays against Lille as he clamped down on the side.
Metz are yet to score in the league but with PSG wavering in form, Opa Nguette will be fancying his chances here today. The Metz striker has waged a rearguard action for the club with him waging a lone battle for the club upfront the park.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With a cleansheet looking incessantly likely for PSG, Kimpembe will captain our side while Angel is the vice-captain.
