PSG vs Nimes Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


PSG are not expected to face too many problems against Nimes in a French Ligue 1 fixture at the Parc des Princes on Saturday. The champions have won seven of their last eight Ligue 1 fixtures and with Kylian Mbappe in good form are backed at 2.10 to emerge victorious in an outcome of over 3.5 goals.

Paris Saint-Germain FC Form & Team News


PSG are 15 points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand and have maintained a 100% record at home throughout the season.

The Parisians are coming off yet another emphatic win as they earned a 5-1 victory at home against Montpellier on Wednesday. Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria were both among the goals for Thomas Tuchel's team, who have now found the net 20 times in their last five home matches in Ligue1.

Mbappe's goal against Montpellier was his 20th of the season and the striker should retain his place in attack on Saturday. He is likely to be joined by Di Maria who has found the net four times in his last seven matches.

Nimes Olympique Form & Team News


Nimes are sitting comfortably in 10th position, not in danger of getting dragged into the relegation battle and also not challenging further up the table. They have struggled on their travels lately with four defeats in their last five away matches across all competitions.

Les Crocodiles claimed a 2-0 victory at home against Dijon last time out in Ligue 1. Goals in each half from Teji Savanier and Antonin Bobichon were enough to earn Bernard Blaquart's team all three points.

23-year-old striker Bobichon is expected to retain his place in the team following his goal against Dijon. Nimes have found things difficult away from home in recent matches and are likely to suffer more frustration against PSG.

PSG vs Nimes Head-to-Head 


PSG have won their two previous matches against Nimes, including a 4-2 triumph in the reverse fixture back in September.

PSG vs Nimes Match Up 


PSG have been excellent at home this season with a 100% record at the Parc des Princes and just five goals conceded. They should comfortably shut out the visitors who have been poor on their travels lately.

Mbappe continues to excel in a central role for PSG with Edinson Cavani and Neymar still sidelined with injury. The Frenchman has scored 20 goals this season, including the fourth in the reverse fixture. He will carry the team's attacking threat on Saturday alongside the likes of Di Maria and Christopher Nkunku.

Verdict
