Clermont vs. Paris Saint-Germain - prediction, team news, lineups

Paris Saint-germain Begin Their Defense Of Their Ligue 1 Title With A Trip To The Stade Gabriel-montpied On Saturday To Take On Clermont In The Opening Week Of Action.

Meanwhile, The Hosts Are Gearing Up For Their Second Consecutive Season Of Top-flight Football After Successfully Staving Off Relegation Last Year.

Clermont Was A Welcome Addition Big Time. Clermont Did Not Shy Away From Shocking The Big Teams In The 2021-22 Season And Pascal Gastien Managed To Secure Another Season Of Ligue 1 Football For His Team With A 17th Place Finish. After Picking Up Eight Points From The First Four Games Of The Season - Unbeaten In The Process - Clermont Unsurprisingly Slipped To The Lower Tiers Of The Division, But Still Managed Memorable Wins Over Lille, Rennes, Marseille And Nice.

Montpellier Hsc, Rodez And Toulouse Have Already Fallen To Clermont's Dominance In Pre-season Friendlies And Les Lanciers Have Kept Clean Sheets In All Of Those Battles, But Lens And Grenoble Foot Have Overcome Gastien.

Strengthening The Defense Has Been A Clear Theme For Gastien This Summer, Especially As His Side Have Conceded At Least One Goal In Each Of Their Last 10 Ligue 1 Home Games And Psg Have Already Asserted Their Authority In The French Game Under Christophe Galtier.

Galtier Didn't Need The Early Stain Of Trophee Des Champions Failure On His Laptop As He Sought To Calm A Trigger-happy Parisiens Town Hall, But The Former Lille And Nice Boss Oversaw A Convincing Victory Over Coupe De France Winners Nantes In The Super Cup. Settlement In Israel.

Even As A Suspended Kylian Mbappe Looked On Helplessly, Les Parisiens Struck Through Neymar  Lionel Messi And A Gutsy Backheel From Sergio Ramos - The Veteran Spaniard Clearly Inspired By Lioness Heroine Alessia Russo.

Winning The Trophee Des Champions Certainly Doesn't Guarantee A Man's Future On Psg's Hot Seat, But Galtier And Football Advisor Luis Campos Have Signed Some Smart Young Signings This Summer As The 2020-21 Ligue 1 Title Winners Look To Prove They're Here For. Long Way.

Defending The Ligue 1 Title Is Galtier's Forte, But The Frenchman Could Hardly Be Under More Pressure To Finally Achieve Success In The Champions League After Numerous Early, Often Humiliating, Exits.

Psg Beat Clermont 6-1 At The Stade Gabriel-montpeid Last Term And Previously Cruised To A 4-0 Win Over Les Lanciers At The Parc Des Princes, So The Hosts' Pre-season Defensive Resilience May Not Count For Anything On The Opening Day. Clermont Are Not Currently Reported To Be Struggling With Any Injury Concerns And Gastien Should Therefore Have A Fully Fit Squad With No Players Missing Due To Suspension. Jeremie Bela May Need More Time To Get Up To Speed With His New Team-mates Following His Arrival From Birmingham City, And Fellow New Arrivals Maxime Gonalons And Komnen Andric Have Good Chances To Get Things Going. Mohamed Bayo, Salis Abdul Samed, Vital Nsimba, Cedric Hountondji And Akim Zedadka Have Moved On To Pastures New This Summer, So The Hosts Will Have A New Look On The Pitch.

As For Psg, Galtier Would Welcome Mbappe Back With Open Arms After Serving His Coupe De France Ban, But The Frenchman Is Also Ruled Out With An Adductor Problem.

Julian Draxler Is Also Still Sidelined With A Knee Injury But Is Unlikely To Feature Here Anyway, While Hugo Ekitike Is In The Squad And Will Be Hoping To Take Advantage Of Mbappe's Absence, But Pablo Sarabia Represents A More Experienced Option.

Galtier Favors A Three-man Line At Psg So Far And Has No Reason To Fix What Isn't Broken Here, While The Two Midfield Spots Could Belong To Marco Verratti And Vitinho.

Clermont possible starting lineup:

Djoco; Zeffane, Seidu, Ogier, Borges; Gonalons, Magnin; Dossou, Berthomeir, Rashani; Andric

Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:

Donnarumma; Ramos, Kimpembe, Marquinhos; Hakimi, Vitinha, Verratti, Mendes; Messi; Sarabia, Neymar
