Following a lone match on home turf, Paris Saint-Germain spent the off-season away from the host of European heavyweights touring America, instead favouring a trip to Japan, where they swept past a trio of J-League favourites to come out undefeated.

For quality however, this curtain-raiser both represents their biggest test of the new term yet and a chance to throw down a gauntlet for Galtier - particularly with several of his star men, including Kylian Mbappe, set to miss out on the encounter on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

Predicted PSG starting XI: Donnarumma; Kimpembe, Ramos, Marquinhos; Hakimi, Verratti, Vitinha, Mendes; Messi; Icardi, Neymar.

PositionNantes roster
Goalkeepers Lafont, Descamps, Petrić
Defenders Fábio, Girotto, Pallois, Traoré, Castelletto, Voisine, Corchia, Sylla
Midfielders Chirivella, Moutoussamy, Blas, Sissoko, Yepié Yepié, Simon, Merlin, Achi, Ba, Doucet, Manvelyan
Forwards Coco, Mohamed, Bamba, Alfamah, Guessand, Ndilu

It's been more than two decades since Nantes last competed in the Trophée des Champions, though if history shows anything, it is that they left victorious after a major rout of Strasbourg.

That was the last honour they won until the Coupe de France this year, in an almighty result against Nice - then-coached by PSG boss Galtier no less - and manager Antoine Kombouaré will have his eyes on going two for two in finals over his opposite number.

Predicted Nantes starting XI: Lafont; Castelletto, Pallois, Girotto; Corchia, Sissoko, Moutousammy, Merlin; Blas, Simon; Mohamed.
