After an impressive 3-0 Champions League victory over Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain will return their attention to Ligue 1 when Bordeaux visit the Parc des Princes on Saturday.
Having dropped just two points from the first available 21, Les Parisiens are overwhelming 1/8 (1.13) favourites with bet365 to tighten their grip on top spot by coming out on top yet again here.
However, Jocelyn Gourvennec’s team are unbeaten in 14 fixtures in the league, and are on offer at 14/1 (15.00) to secure a first win on this ground since 2010.
The hosts were actually held to a 0-0 draw by Montpellier in their previous domestic clash, for which Neymar was not included in the squad, and there are odds of 8/1 (9.00) available on them being forced to settle for a single point for the second time in a row.
Although currently sitting in third and enjoying their longest unbeaten run in five years, Les Girondins might as well be playing in a different league to their star-studded opponents.
While Bordeaux were knocked out of the Europa League at the qualification stages by Videoton of Hungary, Unai Emery’s side are now among the favourites to lift the Champions League - as demonstrated by their convincing win over Bayern, in which Kylian Mbappe truly asserted himself upon the European stage.
Considering Nantes and Guingamp are the only sides from last season’s top 10 that Bordeaux have beaten over the course of their current 14-match unbeaten streak, it will take something special for them to extend it to 15 against such superior opposition.
Instead, a comfortable victory looks likely for a PSG side that has scored 21 goals and conceded only three in seven league games so far this season, with odds of 20/21 (1.95) not to be missed on them winning by at least three goals for the third meeting in a row.
