Nantes vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 21st January, 2017
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: La Beaujoire, Nantes.
Nantes are in their best form of the season with 4 wins now in a row for Ligue 1. This seemed impossible back in early December where the team were losing every week, but wins have followed against Angers, Montpellier, Toulouse and Caen. What has also been noticeable is that the Canaries are keeping a very tight line in the back four conceding no goals in those games. Indeed Nantes has not conceded since they lost to Guingamp at the beginning of December. Now they will face their biggest game of the season when PSG come to visit.
PSG are just three points from the top as the top of Ligue 1 is shared by Monaco and Nice both on 45 points. The French champions showed resilience by going to difficult Rennes and pulling off a 1-0 victory. Whilst PSG remain in the shadows somewhat they are in reality a real threat to go on and win their fifth Ligue 1 title in a row.

Nantes vs PSG: Prediction
Despite Nantes being on a brilliant run and PSG making some heavy weather of matches Nantes great run of wins is set to come to an end in this game. PSG will have to step up their quality but we will put our trust in them that they will do just that. New signing Julian Draxler has been superb so far and he could make an impact again.
