We study the effect on the parton distribution functions (PDFs) from the inclusion of projected measurements in the Drell-Yan (DY) di-lepton production neutral channel of the angular coefficient associated to the $Z$-boson longitudinal polarisation.
The pseudodata, generated assuming two luminosity scenarios, is employed for the profiling of existing PDF sets using the open-source platform xFitter.
We find the observable particularly relevant in constraining the gluon PDF, which in turn translates into a reduction of the systematic uncertainties of the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson production cross section.
