Following a game at home, Paris Saint-Germain spent the off-season from hosting European heavyweights touring the Americas, opting instead for a trip to Japan, where they swept the J-League-favorite trio to an unbeaten run.
But in terms of quality, these curtain lifters are both their biggest test of the new season and a chance to present a challenge to Galtier – especially with some of his star players, including Kylian Mbappe, set to miss the encounter on the Mediterranean Sea coast.
PSG starting XI predictions: Donnarumma; Kimpembe, Ramos, Marquinhos; Hakimi, Verratti, Vitinha, Mendes; Messi; Icardi, Neymar.
It’s been more than two decades since Nantes last competed in the Trophée des Champions, although if history shows anything, it’s that they left behind a win after a huge loss to Strasbourg.
It was the last honor they won until this year’s Coupe de France, in a splendid result against Nice – then coached by PSG boss Galtier no less – and manager Antoine Kombouaré will be eyeing two for two in the final over his opponent number one.
Prediction of Nantes starting XI: Lafon; Castelletto, Pallois, Girotto; Corchia, Sissoko, Mouusammy, Merlin; Blas, Simon; Muhammad.
