Paris Saint-Germain vs Nice Preview

Paris Saint-Germain vs Nice

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Parc des Princes

Date: 27th October 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Last weekend’s draw against Marsielle was only the second time PSG has failed to win a match this season and they will be looking to return back to winning ways with another victory against Mario Balotteli-inspired Nice in this game.

They are by far the best French team at the moment as they have scored 31 goals in their 10 league games so far and they have won all of their Champions League games convincingly including a 3-0 routing of Bayern Munich that led to the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti.

PSG will be without Neymar who was red carded in the draw with Marseille.

They still have the squad to win this game in his absence but they should expect some resistance from an inconsistent Nice side.

Nice may have finished third in the league table last season but they will be happy if they can finish inside the top 10  this season as they have failed to follow up last season’s performance with another good showing so far this season.

They come into this game off the back of four straight losses in both their league and European commitments.

They are defensively very poor as they have conceded 9 goals in their last 4 league games – a run that has left them just 1 point above the relegation zone.

They have won 10 of their previous 30 encounters with PSG, losing 12 and 8 have been stalemates.
