After a single game on home turf, Paris Saint-Germain spent the off-season away from the hosts of the European heavyweights touring America, preferring instead to travel to Japan, where they swept past a trio of J-League favorites, to remain undefeated.
In terms of quality, however, this opener represents both the biggest test of the new tenure yet and a chance to surrender a gauntlet to Galtier – particularly with several of his star men including Kylian Mbappe set to miss the clash on the Mediterranean coast.
Expected PSG starting XI: 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, but if history shows anything it’s that they left victorious after a big win from Strasbourg.
That was the last honor they won ahead of the Coupe de France this year, in a commanding result against Nice – then coached by PSG boss Galtier – and manager Antoine Kombouaré is aiming to win two against two in the final number.
Estimated starting XI from Nantes: lafont; Castelletto, Pallois, Girotto; Corchia, Sissoko, Moutousammy, Merlin; Blas, Simon; Mohammed.
