Paris Saint-Germain's defence of their Ligue 1 title commences on Saturday with a home game against Clermont Foot. The capital club got off to a great start under new coach Christophe Galtier when they beat Nantes 4-0 in the Trophee des Champions last week.

They will be confident of getting Ligue 1 campaign underway with a convincing win as they take on a Clermont side that narrowly avoided relegation last term.

Clermont Foot vs Paris Saint-Germain preview

The pressure is on PSG to secure the Ligue 1 title once again this season, though their more immediate target is to progress in the Champions League.

The new era under Christophe Galtier started off well with a win against Nantes to secure the first piece of silverware of the season.

Kylian Mbappe was suspended for that match, but he is expected to return to the starting XI for the trip to Clermont.

Clermont have made a host of new signings over the summer as they look to improve on last season's escape from relegation.

Maxime Gonalons, 33, makes his return to France and adds some much-needed experience to a side eager to avoid another battle to avoid the drop.

Clermont Foot vs Paris Saint-Germain tips and predictions

PSG are expected to dominate the game just as they did last week, so there should be plenty of goals in this one. Backing over 2.5 goals at 2/5 (1.4) should be a safe bet, while backing PSG with a -2 handicap at 8/5 (2.6) is slightly more adventurous.
