Nantes vs PSG preview, betting tips and prediction: Claudio Ranieri could give PSG a scare

Nantes +2 @ 11/10 with BetBright

Claudio Ranieri’s Nantes are tasked with stopping runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain in a particularly tasty fixture from the returning Ligue 1 round.

The hosts have a goal difference of zero despite conceding only 18 goals. Quite an astonishing record for a fifth-placed team. Perhaps the style that has served them so well will pose problems for PSG.

At the prices being offered, it’s worth taking a punt on Nantes keeping the score down. That’s not a task they managed to accomplish when they were spanked 4-1 at the Parc des Princes in November.

It could be a different story on their own patch. PSG have only failed to win three of their 19 matches in Ligue 1 this season.

Those blotches on their record – two draws and one defeat – happened on the road. Any question of a slack regime over the winter break was swatted aside with a resounding 6-1 cup win at Rennes. Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Angel Di Maria shared the goals, helping themselves to a brace each. It’s this kind of thumping that forces bookmakers to put the table-toppers at such short odds.

Wins from the chasing pack of Monaco and Lyon could pile pressure on PSG. The oil-rich club have appeared impervious to pressure thus far.

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have been incredible since their extraordinary summer moves. The true test for PSG could come if either or both players get injured.

That makes it especially interesting to see what reserves they decide to sell to balance the books and keep UEFA content. Julian Draxler is wanted but Lucas Moura and Javier Pastore are more likely to depart with Premier League clubs like Manchester United looking on intently.
