PSG vs Nimes
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 11th August 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
The champions will start their campaign on Sunday night when they will be at home against Nimes. PSG will be the massive odds on favourites to win and the fans will be expecting a good performance. After so much speculation it appears that Neymar could be staying with the club, although anything can happen in football.
PSG have spent 80m euros this summer bringing in Abdou Diallo from Borussia Dortmund for 32m euros and Idrissa Gueye from Everton for 30m euros. It’s been all about shoring up midfield and defence for the club because they have an embarrassment of riches up front.
A lot of veteran players have left the club too which includes Dani Alves, Adrien Rabiot and Gianluigi Buffon. But PSG look very strong and this could be a straight forward league win.
Nimes were brilliant last season as they approached their football with an attacking style. They lost games but when doing so gave a good account of themselves and scored goals too.
Nimes have spent less than 5m euros in the summer on transfers with their biggest expenditure going on Sidy Sarr for 2m euros and so it is obvious to see that the two teams are operating on a completely different budget.
PSG vs Nimes: Head to Head
The teams have only played each other three times and PSG have won every time.
PSG have scored 10 goals against Nimes in those 3 games.
There is a 100% record to see over 2.5 goals.
PSG vs Nimes: Prediction
PSG will win and they could win big. Backing them to do so though offers no value as they are massive odds on. Instead we will look into the goal scorers market. PSG should really be on fire so to speak as this is the first game in Paris, and the fans will create a good feeling in the stadium. PSG are a team who do not react to criticism, only love and this will work in their favour for this game. We expect Nimes to be defending for long periods and PSG to ease to a victory. If they score early we could see many goals, they just have too many attacking options, headed by the great Kylian Mbappe.
