Story lines

Clermont: The club is in turmoil after the bitter departure of director Jerome Champagne and the revelation that owner Ahmet Schaefer is trying to sell the club for an exorbitant price. This summer has been difficult with Mohamed Bayo moving on to Lille OSC and the losses of Salis Abdul Samed, Cedric Hountondji and Akim Zedadka and largely free transfers such as Maxime Gonalons coming in to replace them. With four teams relegating this term, Clermont is one of the strong favorites to drop back to Ligue 2.

PSG: The Parc des Princes is the hub of unusual positivity this summer as Les Parisiens embark on an overhaul of their squad and general mentality. Luis Campos is working hard to move unwanted players such as Gini Wijnaldum, now at Roma, and Idrissa Gueye, who is rumored to return to Everton, while the Portuguese has given Galtier the likes of Vitinha, Renato Sanches, Hugo Ekitike and Nordi Mukiele. reconstruct start XI. With Lionel Messi and Neymar more focused than ever. A few months before the FIFA World Cup, things appear to be lining up for PSG to enjoy a strong season.

Prediction

Pick: PSG win this comfortably. Expect Galtier’s men to follow up their easy Nantes win with a similarly resounding scoreline here. We saw how the main outfit started the previous campaign strong, and that basically put enough distance between themselves and the fighter pack for the rest of the period. Ligue 1 is not enough for the champions and Coupe de France success is also expected, but a comfortable early margin will make it easier for Galtier to get his players in top form to start the Champions League in good shape.
