PSG vs Nantes: Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips here. Can les Parisiens head into the Christmas break with their unbeaten Ligue 1 run in tact as they welcome Nantes to Parc des Princes this weekend?
Paris Saint Germain have been dominating the Ligue 1 title race as expected this season. Les Parisiens have won the title five times in the last six seasons and that solitary victory for Monaco two years ago seems to have forced their hand into investing even more heavily in their squad with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe arriving since to help ease the team back to the top of the table last season and they look set to win it with ease again this term.
Thomas Tuchel’s aim will be not only to win the title but also to earn some European glory after his side managed to edge out Napoli to progress with Liverpool in the Champions League but until February, attention will turn to keeping their unbeaten league run which now stands at 16 games so far in this campaign. With the home advantage, anything other than a PSG win at odds of 2/17 would be a real shock here.
Nantes have been a midtable side in the French top tier for the last few campaigns as they long for a return to their historic glory days. Les Canaris were once one of the most successful teams in the nation, winning the league eight times in their history and enjoying a real spell of dominance in the 1970s and 1980s but without the funds to compete with the more glamorous sides in the league they have struggled to compete at the top.
Vahid Halilhodzic has led the side to some better form in recent weeks. After a slow start to the campaign, Nantes have lost just one of their last eight matches in all competitions as they make the trip to the capital this weekend. They, like the majority of the league, have a poor record against PSG over the last few seasons but you can back them to produce a stunning away win here at odds of 18/1.
