Having lost just once all season and currently sitting five points clear of second-placed Monaco, PSG know deep down inside that the Ligue 1 title is theirs to lose this year. They've been easily the best team in France (although maybe not in the knockout competitions), and the capital club will be expected to keep their undefeated season at the Parc des Princes going this weekend against Nantes.
It's not a bad expectation to have, really, given that PSG have scored in every home game this year and have kept clean sheets in 60 percent of said matches.
They also beat Nantes (away from home) 2-1 earlier in the season.
The visitors travel to the capital without the greatest away form (winning just two of their last five) but they did post impressive wins against Bordeaux and Marseille in that time, where they also managed to keep clean sheets.
They've only scored 11 goals away from home all season, but their defence in such matches has been superb—conceding just 10 goals in total—and with 40 percent of their away matches ending with clean sheets also, they're certainly not to be underestimated here.
Back from the break, it's hard to back against PSG here, and I do think they'll get up in the end. But it might not be the walkover that many are expecting.
Prediction: Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 Nantes
