- French Ligue 1
- Stadium : Parc des Princes
- Time: 01 – 10 – 2022;
Paris Saint Germain play OGC Nice in another nail-biting episode of the Ligue 1 as they look to retain their position on the league table. The Parisians have been on a purple patch this season, unlike The Eaglets who are two points away from basking in the gloom of relegation quarters. This Saturday, Parc des Princes welcome OGC Nice, a side who have struggled to keep their head above water this season.
Paris Saint Germain (1st)
Galtier’s forward thuis season may prove to be the most clinical in the league, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar Jnr and Kylian Mbappe continously wrecking havoc to the defense of their opponents in the past 8 games of the season. Beating Olympic Lyon to a one-nil (1-0) victory in the most recent encounter befre the Nations League break, they will look to severely oppress a struggling Lucien Favre’s side who suffered defeat to Angers last month.
This season so far, They boast of 7 points from the last 3 home games. Winning two, and drawing one. They have won 16 out of 29 encounters with the visitors, and they remain unbeaten in the last 10 home matches against OGC Nice.
The squad goes ahead without the presence of a few players like Renato Sanches,(Groin Injury) Presnel Kimpembe (Hamstring Strain), and Timothee Pembele (Achilles tendon Injury).
Things look positively vectored for the team as they once again, enjoy the perks of home advantage.
Coach: Christopher Galtier
Tentative Lineup (Subject to changes): G,Donnaruma (GK) Mukiele(RB), Marquinhos,(CB) S.Ramos (CB), A.Hakimi.(LB) Pereira,(CM) Vitinha,(CM) Mendes(CM), L. Messi(AMF), K. Mbappe(LF), Neymar Jnr(RF)Bet on Mbappe to score for 1.54 odds at 1xBet
OGC Nice (13th)
The Eaglets have had a rather rough patch this season, scrambling just 8 points from the last 8 games. Arguably, they have not put forth their best foot in the recent games they have played.
However, last season, OGC Nice never lost a game against PSG, winning at home and playing a draw on their final visit to the Parc des Princes last season. Also, they have won 12 of the last 29 encounters between the two teams.
Lucien Favre’s side has failed to score in their last four games and may be looking to break that jinx, come this weekend despite the injuries faced by key members of the club.
Aaron Ramsey would be missing on the pitch due to a strain to his Hamstring, expected to return in early October. Jean Clair Todibo would be missing the match due to his straight red card suspension.
Coach: Lucien Favre
Tentative Lineup (Subject to changes): M.Bulka (GK); Lotomba(RB); Viti (CB); Dante (CB); Bard (LB) Boudaoui(CM), Thuram (CM) M.Lemina (CM) S.Diop (CM) A.Delort (CF) Laborde (CF)
