Duel among football giants coming up
Duel among football giants approaching – half a billion € market value represented at Trophée des Champions!
Just four more days left before this year´s festival of football in Austria. On Saturday the long wait will have an end when Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique Lyon have their duel for the French Supercup in Klagenfurt´s Wörthersee Stadium. Players with a total market value of half a billion € will be on the pitch before the opening whistle at 8.45 p.m. – something like this is unprecedented in official matches at club level in Austria!
In this year’s final which will be a remake of last year´s encounter PSG want to defend their Supercup title against Olympique Lyon.
Lyon invested in defending players and refused to let their top scorer go – not even for as much as 35 million Euros!
However, the opponent´s team has been considerably strengthened this summer. The seven-time French champion´s defending formation still remains a showpiece of its kind although the EURO 2016 shooting star Samuel Umtiti transferred to FC Barcelona for estimated twenty-five million Euros. With the Cameroonian Nicolas N`Koulo from Olympique Marseille and the Argentinian Emanuel Mammana two national team players have been signed for Lyon´s centre-back position. Upfront the top forward Alexandre Lacazette is expected to continue producing the necessary goals. Recently Lyon have even turned down a 35 million offer by the English top club Arsenal for the 25-year-old.
South American ball artists with PSG!
There is definitely no need to introduce the stars of Paris Saint-Germain. Prominent names such as Angel Di Maria, Edinson Cavani, David Luiz, Thiago Silva or Lucas let every football fan´s heart beat faster. It is especially the wide range of South American ball artists that gives hope for a real festival of football on this upcoming Saturday.
