Despite having a rather uninspiring transfer window, former eight-time French champions and current Coupe de France holders Nantes have done well to avoid defeat after conceding first in the last two rounds (W1, D1). Repeating that feat won’t be as easy if they fall behind against ten-time champions PSG though, as seen in the curtain-raising French Super Cup H2H when the Parisians ran out comfortable 4-0 winners.

Nantes boss Antoine Kombouaré knows this opposition well having made over 100 appearances for both Nantes and PSG during his playing career. Even so, the former tough-tackling defender may struggle to impart a solid mentality on his side after they conceded 3+ goals in all nine defeats across his last 12 personal meetings with his former employers (W2, D1, L9).

The only blemish in visiting boss Christophe Galtier’s PSG tenure to date came in a 1-1 draw against Monaco last month, yet they handily bounced back with a pair of Lionel Messi assists in a 3-0 win at Toulouse last time out (W5, D1). Belief is high that PSG can become the outright highest winners of Ligue 1 after beating their own record for the most goals scored after five rounds with 21.

One of those goals was the second fastest goal ever scored in Ligue 1, an eight-second strike from star man Kylian Mbappé, highlighting yet again that PSG can be ruthless from the outset. That ruthlessness doesn’t seem to let up either, as the record breaking side have now scored at least ten combined goals in both the first half and second half after just five rounds, yet their most prolific period was actually between 31’-HT where PSG averaged 1.2 goals per match.

Players to watch: Mostafa Mohamed has sprung to life for Nantes by contributing to three of their last four goals (G2, A1), those were his first goal involvements since joining. Meanwhile, Mbappé’s historic early strike against Lille is the only one of his last six goals to arrive before half-time!

Hot streak: PSG have scored at least three goals in each of their last seven Ligue 1 away games (W6, D1).
