Already well on their feet during the Trophée des Champions against Nantes last weekend (4-0), Paris Saint-Germain will travel to Clermont with the ambition of taking the lead in Ligue 1 from the first day. Something to scare Pascal Gastien…
Five games, five wins. So far, Christophe Galtier’s PSG has been walking on water. If the preparation matches count for a bit for butter, with in particular more or less simple meetings against Japanese teams, the first meeting of the season for PSG was not missed by the Parisians last Sunday. By beating Nantes (4-0) in the Trophée des Champions, with a double from Neymar and goals from Messi and Ramos, the club from the French capital sent a message to all its French rivals: PSG will play all the matches. thoroughly this season. Which inevitably worries Clermont Foot, which will have the honor of hosting Paris on the first day of L1 on Saturday evening. A match that scares Pascal Gastien.
“They are a team that can punish you quickly”
Pascal Gastien avant #CF63PSG 🎙: “Against the @PSG_inside we know what not to do. You must not relax. We saw it last season here. We were close to equalizing at 2-2 and they scored 4 goals in 12 minutes.” 🔴🔵 pic.twitter.com/kBUy2oizqW

“Against Nantes in the Trophée des Champions, they were impressive. If they have the same attitude throughout the season, few teams will beat them. This is a team that can punish you quickly. Against PSG, we know what not to do. You must not relax. So you have to play even more with your head, put a lot of heart and show intelligence to hope for a result. We can’t wait to start and get back to competition.”launched, in a press conference, the coach of the Auvergne club, who just hopes not to take the same slap as last season at the Stade Gabriel Montpied (1-6) … But with a boiling Messi, a reborn Neymar and a Mbappé returning, PSG risks doing a lot of damage to Clermont.
