Today Match: Paris Saint-Germain and Nantes Prediction 

Fresh from a leading win in Le Classique as well as numerous success at FIFA's The very best awards simply in the future, Paris Saint-Germain resume the Ligue 1 title fight at home to Nantes on Saturday night.

Les Parisiens put Marseille to the sword 3-0 last weekend, while Les Canaris proceeded the defence of their Sports car de France by beating Lens 2-1 in midweek.

The two-man program of Lionel Messi and also Kylian Mbappe illuminated the Orange Velodrome last weekend - much to the discouragement of the residence advocates - who witnessed the Parisiens' epoch-making enemies write new chapters of history in that top-of-the-table experience.

A support for Mbappe took him level with Edinson Cavani as PSG's highest goalscorer of all time on 200 strikes - doing so in a simple 246 video games - as well as the Frenchman turned supplier for Messi to score his 700th club career objective in between his 2 strikes, both of which were established by the smooth Argentine.

From teammates on the pitch to competitors in the opera house, Messi added to his ever-growing haul of honors by being crowned FIFA's The Best Guy's Gamer for 2022 over Mbappe and Karim Benzema on Monday night, however private honours for both world-beaters will certainly fade right into insignificance this weekend break.

By placing 3 previous Marseille without reply last week, PSG opened up an eight-point lead on top of the Ligue 1 table - generating 60 points from their 25 games this term - as Christophe Galtier's decision to return to the three-man backline from earlier in the season paid dividends and afterwards some.

Next off on the program for PSG is expanding their unbelievable unbeaten home run in Ligue 1 to 35 games - having actually made it through a couple of scares to defeat Lille 4-3 a number of weekends ago - but with the 2nd leg of their Champions Organization connection with Bayern Munich to find following week, Galtier might locate that his players' minds are starting to wander.

Prior to PSG's win over Marseille, Les Olympiens had actually finished their Classique rivals' hopes of glory in the Sports car de France. On the other hand, Nantes offered Lens a slice of humble pie in the knockout tournament 2 weeks on from shedding to Les Sang et Or in the leading division.

Being compelled to play Wednesday's quarter-final behind shut doors as penalty for their followers' use pyrotechnics in last year's last victory, Nantes were indebted to a pair of Andy Delort penalties after Seko Fofana's clever opener, maintaining their hopes of back-to-back titles active in the middle of their other residential as well as European struggles.

The Europa Organization is currently a distant memory for Antoine Kombouare's guys adhering to a 4-1 aggregate loss to Juventus in the knockout round playoffs, while succeeding Ligue 1 defeats to Lens and also most recently Rennes have left them 13th in the standings - securely 7 points clear of the decrease zone, though.

A group that prided themselves on protective strength at the start of the year have actually considering that failed to keep clean sheets in their last 5 video games in all tournaments, as well as Nantes just have two wins to their name from 13 away games in the 2022-23 Ligue 1 period, although both have actually come because 2023 rolled around.

Among Galtier's initial acts accountable of PSG was to whip Nantes 4-0 in the Trophee des Champions last summertime prior to winning 3-0 at the Stade de la Beaujoire back in September, although Les Canaris did stun the champs at the Parc des Princes as just recently as March 2021.

Apparently being dealt a brand-new injury blow by the week, PSG have actually shed centre-back Presnel Kimpembe for the remainder of the season as a result of the Achilles tear he endured in Le Classique, throwing Galtier's three-man defence plans into chaos unless Nordi Mukiele or Danilo Pereira operates as a makeshift centre-back.

However, Galtier will certainly more than likely utilise Pereira in midfield because of the absence of Marco Verratti, who is prohibited for an accumulation of bookings, while Neymar and Renato Sanches are both still sidelined too.

Achraf Hakimi remained the gain Marseille as a result of an upper leg worry, and also PSG have actually given that been shaken by allegations of rape versus the right-back by a 23-year-old lady - the news of which damaged prior to he was called in the FIFA FIFPRO Men's Globe XI.

The right-back has now been billed by French prosecutors, and his upper leg concern is also still bedevilling him, meaning that he will remain this game ahead of an awaited return to group training next week.

As for Nantes, centre-back Nicolas Pallois need to be back from knee injury, however fellow defenders Sebastien Corchia, Quentin Merlin and also Charles Traore are anticipated to lose out, so 19-year-old Jaouen Hadjam can expect an additional trip at left-back.

Ludovic Blas, Mostafa Mohamed and also Marcus Coco were all passed fit to make the bench for the Coupe de France in spite of previous issues over their fitness, and also the previous 2 may have an opportunity of returning to the starting schedule - Evann Guessand and Andy Delort, who has a calf problem, would make way.

Paris Saint-Germain feasible starting schedule:
Donnarumma; Mukiele, Marquinhos, Ramos, Mendes; Vitinha, Pereira, Ruiz; Soler; Messi, Mbappe

Nantes possible starting schedule:
Lafont; Centonze, Castelletto, Girotto, Hadjam; Sissoko, Moutoussamy; Blas, Mollet, Refuse; Mohammed

We claim: Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 Nantes
Despite the injury worries still piling up and also their most prominent midfielder in Verratti suspended, PSG can make use of Nantes' midweek fatigue to warm up for Bayern in the most effective possible style.

Ex-PSG employer Kombouare has seen his side shed the rearguard reliability that exemplified their performances earlier in 2023, so their journey to the capital should be an unpleasant one.
