Paris Saint-Germain has started the season very confidently, and their current winning streak in all tournaments counts six matches. Sometimes problems in defense creep in, but overall the team has become more reliable. Neymar works better in defense. In 8 rounds, he has already scored eight goals and made seven assists. The only thing that can prevent the Parisians from winning the title is the conflict in the locker room: Lionel Messi and Neymar do not mainly get along with Killian Mbappe, considering him too selfish on the field. Rumors of Messi's possible departure at the end of this season are already circulating, a little alarming situation. The Argentine super forward is in great form, although he does not take many chances.
After the break for the national team matches, PSG has a lineup problem. Marco Verratti got injured, and his participation is questionable. Before the international break, Presnel Kimpembe dropped out, and he might not have time to heal. Despite the absence of their central defender, the team played in a 1:0 away win against Lyon last season. Messi and Neymar both netted the decisive goal in the fifth minute and then did not convert a chance each. PSG's defense was far from perfect, so the opponents restored balance. In any case, the capital club surpassed the Lions in the number of goalscoring chances, and their victory was entirely fair.
Nice can not escape the crisis in which they fell after the change of coach. The club tried to shake up the squad, exchanging Amine Gouiri for Gaëtan Laborde, and Sofiane Diop and Nicolas Pepe look top-notch. Despite strengthening the attacking lineup, the Eagles struggle to create chances at the other side's goal, and their realization lacks even more. Three of the team's five goals were scored by Andy Delort, with Pepe and Aaron Ramsey being the leading spenders. The Welsh midfielder has been out relatively long due to injury and may not play against PSG. Young midfielder Rares Ilie is also injured, while defender Jean-Clair Todibo will not take to the pitch due to disqualification.
In the last ten matches in all competitions, Nice gained only three victories and five defeats. Before the international break, Lucien Favre's charges were lost to Angers (0:1) at home, and for the opponent, this victory was the first in 2022. In the 1st minute of the meeting, Nice was left ten men, and before the conceded goal, the opponent missed two scoring chances. In the 2nd half, the teams leveled, and the Eagles had a chance to seal a draw. Delort had his best option, but he couldn't beat the goalkeeper.Watch Free Live Stream
Expert Betting Tips
Nice had a very weak start to the season, and one can only hope that during the international break the coach did not waste time and looked for solutions. Leaders of PSG participated in the national team matches and the possible absence of Verratti could affect the game of the team. The visitors need to improve the realization. They will have a chance to score, as the Parisians are far from perfect in defense, especially against the absence of Kimpembe.
