Clermont Foot pulled off a shocker last season at the Parc de Prince against PSG. They came from behind to beat PSG 3-2 despite conceding 2 quick goals in the 16th and 21st minute. The memories of that victory will remain in the mind of the team, but that will offer little help to them in this upcoming game.
Clermont have been poor since the beginning of the new campaign, losing 5 and playing a draw once in 6 matches. They were beaten 2-1 by Le Havre in their last game. They were 2-goals down in the opening 7 minutes after conceding goals from Nail Alioui and Mohammed Bayo. Cheick Konate managed to hand them a lifeline after he scored in the 47th minute, but it offered little change to the game and they lost at the end.

Paris Saint Germain
Paris Saint Germain proved once again that they are the kings of the french league after trashing Marseille 4-0 in their last game. There were concerns about the seriousness of the team after they were beaten 3-2 by Lens a week before. But they responded in style, with back-to-back wins against Dortmund in the Champions League and Marseille in the league. PSG might be without Kylian Mbappe for this trip to Clermont, after the superstar picked up a knock in the 32nd minute in the Marseille game. The extent of the injury is still unknown, but that has little effect on this game.
Achraf Hakimi, Randal Kolo Muani and Goncalo Ramos were all on the scoresheet in the game against Marseille. Goncalo Ramos was brought in the replace Kylian Mbappe and he grabbed a brace, which is a strong indication that he might be called up to face Clermont in this game.
