Les Scoistes play a very attractive football packed with goals and they’ll come into the clash with the Parisians having scored at least two in all but one of their last six matches in all competitions.

They managed a second-half comeback at Strasbourg last weekend, but they allowed a late equalizer to return home with a point in the pocket.

PSG

The visitors kept cruising last Friday when they eased past Nice 3-0 at Parc Des Princes.

The impressive run of form was continued in the mid-week’s Champions League fixture which saw Unai Emery’s men bag five past the Belgian champions Anderlecht.Interestingly, it was the match which saw Paris’ left-back Layvin Kurzawa complete a hat-trick. PSG will be missing Neymar in this fixture due to injury and Di Maria is also doubtful.

Head to Head

PSG have entirely dominated this match-up winning five and drawing one of their six meetings with Les Scoistes.

Their previous encounter was especially interesting as the two sides played for the title in the last term of Coupe de France.

The Parisians lifted the trophy at the end, but only after a late stoppage-time own goal (0-1).
