The Paris Saint Germain vs Strasbourg live stream sees PSG's world-class team look to earn back-to-back victories to kick off their season. Strasbourg, meanwhile, are hoping to bounce back after a disappointing defeat to Angers on the Ligue 1 opening weekend.
PSG got their season off to a winning start with a 2-1 victory over Troyes last weekend. However, the big story coming out of Paris this week is the arrival of Leo Messi at the Parc des Princes. The soccer icon joined PSG after failing to renegotiate his contract at FC Barcelona, a club he's been at since he was 13 years old.
The anticipation surrounding Messi's debut has captured the entire footballing world, but it's almost certain that he won't be pulling on a PSG shirt for the first time against Strasbourg. Messi has not yet had any pre-season training, having starred for Argentina in their successful Copa America campaign, and will need time to settle into his new club, his first in over two decades. He will, however, be presented to fans on the day, alongside the club's other summer signings, so will definitely be present at the match at least.
Even with Messi sitting this one out, PSG have a wealth of attacking talent that will surely be too much for Strasbourg. Kylian Mbappé and Mauro Icardi are likely to start, as is another summer acquisition, Georginio Wijnaldum. But Gianluigi Donnarumma won't play, and nor will Neymar or Angel Di Maria.
Strasbourg will hope to cause an upset and spoil the party atmosphere. They will take comfort in Troyes taking an early lead against PSG last week, showing that the team is still somewhat lacking defensively. Sergio Ramos has been signed to shore things up at the back, but he won't be fit in time for this match. Regardless, Strasbourg will face an uphill battle to take anything from his match — but anything can happen in soccer.
