PSG vs Nice Prediction:The motivation will be there for PSG to win this game and with the consistency of both Lille and Lyon the champions have no choice, and can ill afford to drop any points. Still we don’t expect PSG to drop many more points at home this season and this should be a straight forward victory. Though backing the home win feels impossible as they are very short odds, so we will look into different markets.

PSG vs Nice Preview:PSG can go 1st in Ligue 1 with victory on Saturday because Lille play on Sunday and Lyon play later in the evening. The French champions had to battle hard in the French Cup in midweek but they beat Caen 1-0 to advance to the next round. However Neymar looks to have picked up a bad groin injury and will miss this game for sure. He is a doubt for PSG’s huge game against Barcelona in the Champions League too. PSG have won 4 of their last 5 games and last weekend they beat Marseille 2-0. The club have the best home form having picked up 28 points from a possible 36. Nice will be the huge underdogs to win this game. The club are down in 13th place and come here trailing PSG by 22 points. Nice did win their 8th game of the season last weekend as they beat Angers 3-0. In midweek in an all Ligue 1 tie Nice did well to beat Nimes 3-1 away from home and with two wins in a row in all competitions means the club will come into this game with some confidence.
Team News:PSG revealed on Thursday that Neymar will be sidelined for approximately four weeks with his adductor injury, and Pochettino has also lost another winger in Angel Di Maria to the thigh problem he sustained in Le Classique last Sunday. Pablo Sarabia can therefore look forward to another start out wide this weekend, but Marco Verratti took a boot to the hip from Dimitri Payet at the weekend and is also doubtful for this one. Keylor Navas is expected to return in between the sticks against Barcelona but may not be risked here, while Mauro Icardi should demote Kean to the bench despite his winning goal in the Coupe de France. Nice must make do without their two recognised right-backs in Jordan Lotomba and Youcef Atal, while former Arsenal protege Jeff Reine-Adelaide is now out for the season with an ACL injury. The absences of Lotomba and Atal means that 20-year-old Andy Pelmard could be trying to keep Mbappe quiet, while the injury-plagued Kasper Dolberg is not available after undergoing an operation for appendicitis. The French Football Federation are reportedly set to investigate a leaked video involving William Saliba, but Ursea has stressed that the incident is in the past and Nice’s player of the month for January is highly unlikely to be dropped.
