In previous meetings, PSG dominated the matchup, so they are the overwhelming favourites coming into this game. While PSG suffered a humiliating defeat against Lorient in the last clash, a home that the Parisians lost 1-3, they should be back here to avenge the embarrassment.
Kylian Mbappe is not expected to feature in this season opener after reports he is bound to leave the club. With that, we expect a front three of Marco Ascension, Hugo Ekitike, and Kang-In Lee on the Parisian's side.
