Soccer France Ligue 1 Prediction
Paris SG vs Clermont - Match Preview
⚽ 3 June 2023 - 19:00 GMT +0
Christophe Galtier may have helped Paris Saint-Germain land the Ligue 1 title this season, but he still heads into the final week of the campaign fighting for his future at the club. The underfire boss could reportedly lose his job this summer but claimed publicly he “deserves a second season” after a sluggish 1-1 draw over Strasbourg last weekend that secured the top spot ahead of Lens.
Speculation surrounding Galtier’s future has been growing for some time, with critics unhappy at the Parisians’ last-16 exit in the UEFA Champions League, as well as some below-par performances domestically. Some of their most disappointing displays have come at home, where PSG have lost three of their last five league fixtures (W2), yet their overall Ligue 1 record of late remains a positive one thanks to six wins in eight games since early April (D1, L1).
They will be looking to extend that form against visitors Clermont, who have lost the previous three league H2Hs, conceding at least four goals on each occasion! The Lancers should head to the French capital in a buoyant mood though, after a 2-0 victory over Lorient last weekend secured a top-half finish in Ligue 1 for the first time.
Such a remarkable season has led to Pascal Gastien being nominated for the Manager of the Year award in France, and he has admitted it has been a season to “savour”, stating he is “proud of the work accomplished.” The boss will now be hoping to sign off for this season on a high, as Clermont looks to extend a stunning finish to the campaign which has seen them register seven wins in nine outings (D1, L1).
📋 Players to watch: Kylian Mbappé has netted nine goals in PSG’s last seven Ligue 1 outings, with seven of those strikes coming before HT. He will be hoping to out-score Clermont forward Saîf-Eddine Khaoui, who was on target against Lorient last time out, but has failed to net in six losing H2Hs.
⚡ Hot stat: PSG have scored first in a division-high of 27 of their 37 Ligue 1 matches (W25, D2).
