Trophee des Champions Preview: Paris Saint-Germain v Bordeaux

1 August 2013 15:42

Paris Saint-Germain meet Bordeaux in Saturday's Trophee de Champions in their first competitive game under Laurent Blanc.

The Ligue 1 champions will be looking to add to their trophy cabinet after securing their first domestic league title since 1994 last term.

They face a Bordeaux side that won the Coupe de France by overcoming Evian 3-2 in a dramatic final in May.

New signings Edinson Cavani and Marquinhos have been left out of the PSG squad, while winger Jeremy Menez is injured for the game at the Stade d'Angondje in Libreville, Gabon.

However, left-back Lucas Digne, who joined from Lille in July, could feature, but new manager Blanc may instead turn to the more experienced Maxwell, who is aiming to start the new campaign on a high.

"The Trophee des Champions is an important title in France. We must try and play to the best of our ability to ensure we start the season on a winning note," the Brazilian told the club's official website.

Cheick Diabate scored a double in the Coupe de France final for Bordeaux, but he is set to miss out through injury, with the likes of Julien Faubert, Diego Rolan and Henrique also unavailable.

Despite those absences, Bordeaux manager Francis Gillot remains excited by the prospect of playing for another piece of silverware.

"I do not know if we're ready. I know at the end of the game," he told Bordeaux's official website.

"We are in the best conditions to approach this game. It is an extraordinary thing to play the Trophee des Champions. This means that you have won a title."
