The champion begins the defense of the title

The French League will begin a new season and on Saturday it will have neither more nor less than the debut of Paris Saint Germain in the competition. On the other side will be Clermont, a modest team that will welcome him to their stadium.

The Parisians are the great candidates, according to sports predictions, to win the Ligue 1 title. And in what will be their first presentation, they will have to face Clermont, a club that rose a couple of seasons ago and that will try to give the big hit

Therefore, it is supposed to be a match of a giant against a lowly. The famous story of David against Goliath. Although of course, this is football, and as in that mythological story, anything can happen.

This is how PSG arrives

It is clear that this team is the big favorite in the French League predictions because, in addition to its economic power, it seems that this will be a completely different season from the previous one.

During the preseason, and also in the French Super Cup match, a very good performance was seen.

Lionel Messi is already fully adapted and he was seen at a high level, as well as looking smiling. In turn, Neymar is very involved and they are joined by none other than Kylian Mbappé, who renewed his relationship with the club.

With this good news seen on the pitch, coupled with a fully recovered Sergio Ramos, plus a star-studded squad, the Parisians are excited to once again prove their supremacy in the local tournament.

That is why on Saturday they will have a litmus test, since on the other side they will have a rival who, according to sports predictions, is weaker. But of course, at PSG they know they can't relax or underestimate this opponent.

This is how Clermont arrives

“Les Lanciers”, as this team is nicknamed, has a history in which its participation in promotion tournaments predominates.

Clermont was in the third division until 2001, the year in which it was promoted to the second category. A few years later he returned to third, but achieved promotion again and in 2021 he made the leap to the highest category.

So it's clear that this is a very humble club, actually serving as home to the Stade Gabriel Montpied, which has a capacity of 12,600.

In addition, it has the lowest budget in the category, and has a policy of not spending money on reinforcements.

Background between both

These teams have barely met 3 times, and at the moment PSG is the one that prevails in history.

The first confrontation was for the 1996/1997 French Cup, and that match ended evenly and with the Parisians winning on penalties.

Already in Ligue 1, in the 2021/2022 season, Paris Saint Germain won 4-0 and 6-1, so the results are convincing and that makes all the French League forecasts lean in favor of Lionel Messi and company, although of course, that only in the previous one, since this is football and anything can happen.

The magnifying glass on…

Lionel Messi, neither more nor less. It is that the Argentine star has shown that he is fully involved in the present of the team and wants to show the best version of himself.

After his first season, with good performances at times and with criticism from others, on the tour of Japan and in the first official tournament, a much more participatory and forceful Lionel Messi was seen in front of the rival goal.

These good previous performances make PSG fans excited that Rosario could be the one they expect and want to see defending his shirt.

The magnifying glass on…

Goalkeeper Ouparino Djoco, who has been a starter for much of last season and also throughout pre-season.

This 24-year-old goalkeeper will surely have a lot of work to do against a team that is very offensive and that will seek to overcome his resistance.

Therefore, for him, it will be a great opportunity to show off and show that he has potential and a great future ahead of him.

Sports bets

The people who usually play their chips, and also the fans of these teams, are already analyzing the sports bets that they will be able to place.

Clearly Paris Saint Germain is the big favorite and that is why only 1.27 is paid for their victory, while a victory for Clermont would represent a big hit in sports betting, since it scales to 12.0.

For its part, the draw also gives good returns, since it is positioned at 7.20, being another very good alternative.

To all this we must add the possibility of choosing by the result with which the first half will end, the exact score at the end of the game, which team will score first and other issues that will make it possible for one to choose different plays that give good returns in case of hit.

That is why those who usually play their chips regularly, on these occasions will have a difficult task because what one can analyze in the previous one, will be of little use once the ball starts to roll.
