It has been a season to forget for both teams with only domestic cup success to show for a miserable season that might turn out to be real disasters for both teams.
With the players that both teams possess most especially Valencia it is incredible that they are in this kind of position but after watching them last night against Bilbao, it seemed that some of the players were not interested and also manager Ronald Koeman continues to make disastrous decisions.
His starting 11 left a lot to be desired as he decided to leave Ever Banega, Fernando Morientes, Joachim on then bench whilst playing Carlos Marchena in midfield and persisting with Arizmendi and Hedwiges Maduro.
Quite what has become of PSG is indeed baffling as most people thought they would get over their recent funk with the appointment of Paul Le Guen but as it turns out the heady days of being Lyon manager are long gone and the more confusing mismanagement style we saw at Glasgow Rangers is the Le Guen that has come to the fore.
It has been nothing short of disastrous for both Le Guen and PSG as their chronic lack of goal scoring and incoherent displays have dogged them all season in the league but remarkably not in cup competitions.
As for Koeman, he came into a volatile situation with an internal tug-of-war between some of the top players Miguel Angulo, David Albelda and Santiago Canizares against management with Koeman asked to not only drop the 3 players but to disassociate them from the club completely.
This understandably did not go down well with everyone and the squad seems to be divided. What seems to be apparent is that the players feel they cannot be relegated and as long as they are not mathematically relegated, they would not try very hard for the manager as it seems they are capable of raising their game when they want to like the recent victory at Real Madrid in the league and the triumph in the cup showed where they defeated Barcelona along the way where they beat Getafe by 3-1 just last Wednesday.
They say no side is too good to go down and Paris St Germain as well as Valencia are about to find out if they are not extremely careful.
