Today’s Football Latest News : Paris Saint-Germain vs Nantes: Predictions, tip & betting odds

The French champions are out to get life under their new coach off to a good start

Paris Saint-Germain are looking to start the new season with a trophy on Sunday when they take on Nantes in the Trophee des Champions. The Ligue 1 champions meet winners of the Coupe de France to contest the first piece of silverware of the new campaign.

PSG are playing their first competitive game under new coach Christophe Galtier and will be looking to get off to a strong start in the post-Mauricio Pochettino era.

PSG are the big favourites to get the win in 90 minutes at 4/11 (1.36) with bet365.

Nantes are big underdogs to get the victory at 7/1 (8.0) with the draw priced at 4/1 (5.0).

PSG stars Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi are the favourites to get the game’s first goal at just 3/1 (4.0) while Mauro Icardi is 7/2 (4.5) and Neymar is 9/2 (5.5).

Nantes forward Mostafa Mohamed 10/1 (11.0) to break the deadlock, while Evann Guessand is 12/1 (13.0).

PSG’s new player Nordi Mukiele has travelled to Israel with the rest of the squad and could feature in the first competitive game under Galtier.

However, Hugo Ekitike will not be part of the team as he has not made the trip to Tel Aviv.

Nantes, meanwhile, could have Moses Simon available after he passed a fitness test to make it on the flight to Israel.

Nantes have a good record against PSG and Simon was a big factor in their 3-1 victory over the Parisian club in February.

The Nigeria star got one assist and was a constant thorn in the side of the French champions and will be out to spring another surprise with Nantes this time around.

PSG are expected to put in a strong performance against Nantes under their new boss, so backing them with a -1 handicap at 5/6 (1.83) may be a smart bet.
