Les Parisiens were stunned to lose last season’s Ligue 1 crown to Lille, but a Super Cup clash at Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv, Israel, gives them a chance to reestablish order among France’s heavyweights. Only a week remains before the 2021-22 Ligue 1 campaign gets underway, and much has changed for both these teams as they prepare to clash for pre-season silverware. Zach Lowy highlighted the departures of goalkeeper Mike Maignan to AC Milan and Boubakary Soumaré to Leicester City, but Christophe Galtier’s exit from the helm could prove most damaging:

Without doing a disservice to his successor, Jocelyn Gourvennec, Lille have swapped one of Ligue 1’s finest tacticians for a coach without a job since he was sacked by Guingamp in 2019. PSG, on the other hand, recently handed manager Mauricio Pochettino a contract extension to boost confidence among the group, which has made major improvements in the off-season:

Sergio Ramos, Georginio Wijnaldum and Gianluigi Donnarumma have each joined the club on free transfers, while the club forked out a little more than $70 million to sign Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan. PSG are unbeaten in five pre-season fixtures and most recently drew 2-2 against a quality Sevilla side, giving Pochettino some encouragement ahead of the new campaign:

The same can’t be said for Lille’s pre-season form after they’ve won just one of their four friendly outings, recently losing to Benfica and Porto without getting on the score sheet. Get French Football News confirmed a calf injury is likely to keep Ramos from making his debut in Tel Aviv, while the likes of Kylian Mbappé, Presnel Kimpembe, Wijnaldum and Danilo Pereira are in contention to face Lille.
