Last season, with a lot of luck, the home team managed to preserve their first league status. They finished the season in 17th place in the table with 36 points, i.e. only 4 points more than the first team in the relegation zone.
What distinguished them last season was a disastrously bad defensive game. In 38 matches played, they conceded as many as 69 goals, which is the third worst performance in the championship.
They achieved equal success at home and away, so it cannot be said that their home ground is a special advantage.
The team from Paris once again won the title in France in a very dominant way. They ended the season with as many as 15 points more than the second-placed Marseille, which speaks volumes for how superior they were compared to the rest of the league.
They were also the most efficient in the championship with as many as 90 goals scored, and as many as 16 of their matches ended with at least 4 goals scored, so it is clear what offensive potential they have.
And this time the ambitions are the same, so it is to be expected that the PSG team will start motivated from the first round.
In the only two previous matches played last season, PSG convincingly won both times with 4:0 and 6:1.
Injuries and suspensions
Clermont: No absences.
PSG: Draxler and Pembele.
The difference in quality is too great to even consider any other outcome than a convincing victory for the visitors.
However, bearing in mind that this is only the first round of the new season, we believe that the visiting team’s players will play in a slightly calmer rhythm, which should definitely be enough for the first 3 points in the new season.
