Paris Saint-Germain will be looking for a win at Parc des Princes to build towards consistency and keep up with the table-top Nice.
With several slipups and in-form rivals, Paris Saint-Germain have a lot more on their hands this season. The Saints had a confident run last season ending the 2015/16 campaign a mighty 31 points ahead of runners-up Olympique Lyonnais. They now already lag six points behind Nice and will have to shake off Monaco if they want to take the top spot too.
Edinson Cavani scored ten goals in 11 Ligue 1 matches and manager Unai Emery will want him to lead the attacking line on Sunday too. The Uruguay forward scored four goals in the last four league games and backing him to score first at 12/5 with BetVictor
is a great value. Both teams can play attacking football and concede a lot of goals this season so we are looking at a match with over 2.5 goals FT value. You can back this at 8/15 with Bet365
On the other hand, Rennes are currently in good form too and travel to Paris in an attempt to remain top 3 Champions League positions contenders. However, their away form is not the best out there. They have won only one away match, namely at Nantes, and one more point from a draw at Montpellier. We thus can’t see them creating too much trouble for the Parisians at their home pitch. 12/1 with WilliamHill
is indeed a long shot for this bet, but many value seekers will keep an eye on this bet.
Paris Saint-Germain are yet to lose a match in front of their home crowd this season and letting Nice to a potential 9 point lead could be fatal. Their mid-week win at Basel with a late winner from Meunier definitely reinstated the good spirits in the dressing room and they will just build on it. We believe they will thus be able to lock the points at home (currently at 2/9 with WilliamHill
) and keep up with Nice and Monaco in what seems one of the best Ligue 1 season in a while.
Over 2.5 FT at 8/15 with Bet365
