Paris St Germain is the clear favorite, but not everything is simple and unambiguous as it seems. So lets see what surprises we may see at 31 July
“Nantes” this season is performing successfully on all fronts. In the French championship the “Canaries” are in ninth place, allowing them to finish the season quietly and not take part in the struggle for survival. In addition, Nantes made it to the semi-finals of the French Cup, having confidently defeated Bastia (2-0) in the quarterfinals. It should be noted that on the previous matchday of Ligue 1 the hosts defeated Reims at home (1-0).
Nantes plays well against PSG, so you should not consider them a clear outsider here, out of the last seven between these teams, Nantes has won three and lost four, and only in two of the two teams managed not to miss.
The Parisians won the last championship with a clear advantage, and, as in previous years, will again be the main favorite in all competitions in France, where they participate. PSG approaches the upcoming match after defeating Real Madrid in the Champions League (1-0). Mbappe’s goal allowed the Parisians to beat the cream and made them the favorite before the return trip to Madrid. At the same time, Mauricio Pochettino’s side feel no competition in Ligue 1, where the capital’s team lead the standings with 13 points over second-placed Marseille and the Parisians beat home side Rennes (1-0) in the last round of the championship.
And dont forget about an elephant in the room – powerfull attacking trio of Messi, Mbappe and Neymar.
- PSG are undefeated in their last 15 Ligue 1 away matches
- Nantes has won their last 4 matches at home in all competitions
- Both sides scored no more than three goals in four of their last five meetings at Nantes
PSG wasted a lot of energy in the matches against Rennes and Real, so the guests will probably resort to lineup rotation in this game. PSG is simply better in class with a very good selection of attacking players, and Nantes will benefit from the fact that the meeting will take place on neutral territory, not in Paris. The main intrigue is the goal on both sides of the field, which Nantes can well implement.
