PSG vs Caen
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 12th August 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris)

The champions PSG will take on Caen in the show piece in Paris to start PSG’s new league campaign and everyone is only expecting there to be one result: a home win.

PSG are as low as 1.08 to win and Caen can be backed at around 30.00. It is an incredible price for one game but then again the talent on display at PSG is also incredible and of course they are at home.

PSG finally made Kylian Mbappe arguably the best teenage footballer in world football theirs in a deal worth over £150m. Last season he was on loan for the club from Monaco.

They have a devastating attack including Neymar and Edinson Cavani. They have also brought in the legendary Gianluigi Buffon from Juventus as 2nd goal keeper but it is unclear how many games Buffon will play, but he is sure to be great for the dressing room.

As for Caen their objectives are clearly not going to be the same as PSG, and they have spent £8m purchasing Enzo Crivelli and Casimir Ninga.

But they have let go Ivan Santini to Anderlecth for just £2,7m which was a surprise given that the 29 year old had done well for the club last season.

PSG vs Caen: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams played in Paris, PSG won 3-1.
  • Caen have no wins this century in Paris.
  • Two of the last four meetings has ended in draws.

PSG vs Caen: Prediction

With this being the first game of the season we should expect PSG to win. The only negative for the club may be some player tiredness after most of the squad were involved in the World Cup.

We think that the game could dry up in the 2nd half and are instead expecting an explosive start to the game, and with this game we need to look into different markets for value.
