Paris Saint-Germain is coming quite a wild season. Last season, Les Parisiens won Ligue 1 for the third straight time. They also won the Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue, and the Trophee des Champions. In addition, they finished as the runners-up of the UEFA Champions League.
PSG took its fourth domestic treble in club history(the club’s first since the 2017-2018 season). It was their fourth domestic treble in six seasons. Coming up short in the Champions League was a horrible way for them to close the season out, however, the club has a bright future.
What Is Expected Of Les Parisiens This Season?
They should pick up exactly where they left off. PSG is perfectly capable of winning Ligue 1 again with the potential of winning all three French domestic titles. Obviously, their biggest goal is to make another deep run in the UEFA Champions League in the hopes of winning it all.
Les Parisiens will play their first Ligue 1 game on Thursday. Unfortunately, Neymar and Angel Di Maria along with four other PSG players tested positive for Covid-19 last week. Neymar is officially out for PSG’s first two games. Di Maria is likely to follow along with the other infected players.
Regardless of their current predicament, there’s no reason for Les Parisiens to panic. With all the talent available, there are other options on the table. Kylian Mbappe, Mauro Icardi, Marco Verratti should all be ready to go along with several other key players. Whether they start or not, they should be on the active roster.
The Champions League begins late next month. PSG is looking to begin its next Champions League campaign with confidence. Until then, PSG must amass a winning streak. By the time they begin Champions League play, they need confidence and momentum. That being said, PSG needs to amass an effective and convincing winning streak.
