Paris Saint Germain (PSG)

Paris Saint Germain’s rise is not unusual. It may have a slow start, but it surely knows how to return to winning ways.


PSG currently poses a threat in the title race and is eager to overcome Marseille. The club cannot afford to lose the momentum for this might be the time when they will finally topple their title rival. Undefeated in its last six (6) matches and with the almighty Zlatan Ibrahimovic back in the pitch, expect the Parisians to unleash a heavy thrashing to their opponent.



Similar to Nantes, Nice also pulled off a scoreless stalemate against Reims. This also prompted an upward movement in their rank in the league table. However, it seems that their intention to climb a little higher will be put to a temporary stop. Pitted against PSG, it is evident that the best result that they can ever come up with is a stalemate.
