PSG will be aware that they will be involved in a tighter battle for the Ligue 1 title this season, as they have work to do to defend their title. They will be looking to maintain the pressure on the league leaders with a home win against Nice this weekend.
Ligue 1 Preview
PSG will come into the latest round of Ligue 1 fixtures in third place in the standings. There will be a three-way tussle for the Ligue 1 title this season, and PSG will be aware that they will need to keep winning games to put pressure on the two sides that are above them. Lille’s advantage at the summit sits at just three points at present, but they have shown no sign of surrendering the lead that they have built up after an excellent first half of the season. PSG were the first side to blink in the title race, as they were beaten by Loreint at the end of January. However, since that defeat, they have been able to battle back strongly. They will come into this game after winning three on the bounce in all competitions, and they haven’t conceded a goal in any of those games. However, there are injury concerns for PSG ahead of a huge week, as it was announced that they would be without Neymar for an extended period of time.
Nice are currently in the bottom half of the league table, but there is a very slim chance that they will get dragged into the relegation battle this season. They have a 14-point advantage over 19th-placed Dijon, but a European challenge also seems out of the question as they are a massive 19 points behind Monaco. However, they will be looking to end the season strongly so that they can give fans something to remain optimistic for next term.
PSG vs Nice Head To Head
PSG have been dominant in fixtures against Nice over recent seasons, as they have won five of the previous six games. Nice’s last win in this fixture game back in April 2017, and they haven’t beaten PSG in the French capital since November 2009.
PSG vs Nice Prediction
There is still a massive gulf between the leading sides in France and the ones located towards the bottom end of the table. For that reason, this game should be a comfortable home success for the reigning French champions.
