Two teams are looking to build on their victories before the international break locks horns this week. Nimes will be playing host to defending Champions PSG at the Stade des Costieres. The match kickoffs at 10 pm.
Before the international break, Nimes got a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Montpellier. PSG continued with their fourth consecutive win over Angers in-game week six in Ligue 1.
Nimes fought off a relentless Montpellier side without any win since the start of the season. It was only in the game’s dying minutes that Renaud Ripart equalized with a strike to finish the game with a 1-0 win.
Furthermore, Nimes managed to share their spoils against Lyon and Lens before the international break. Jerome Arpinon knows it will prove a challenge to record a loss to the defending champions, especially after a successful transfer window.
On the other hand, PSG made four new signings to add to the squad. Florenzi arrived to replace Meunier at the left-back position. Other new signings include loan moves for Moise Kean and Rafinha and the free transfer of Danilo Perreira.
PSG currently garnered 12 points in their last four matches. The side is now fourth in the ranking, with only two points from top placed Rennes in the table. Tuchel’s side has only conceded three goals so far in the season.
