Having dropped their first Ligue 1 points of the season last weekend, PSG faces a potentially tricky away test on Saturday as they take on Nantes at the Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau.

Prior to last weekend´s come-from-behind 1:1 draw with Monaco, PSG had been in scintillating league form, scoring an impressive 22 goals in successive victories against Metz, Clermont, Montpellier and Lille. The Parisiens also scored a big 4:0 win against Nantes in the season-opening Trophee des Champions fixture.

Hosts Nantes have enjoyed a solid enough start to the new season since that loss, winning 1, drawing 3 and losing just 1 of their first 5 fixtures. That first victory of the campaign occurred last weekend with a 3:1 home success against Toulouse, while they followed that with a decent point at Strasbourg on Wednesday.

Nantes vs PSG Betting Tips: BTTS and over 2.5 goals

While PSG are massive favourites coming into this contest, the h2h record between these sides makes for interesting reading, with Nantes actually winning 3 of the last 8 meetings, including a shock 3:1 win in their most recent meeting in February. 

Historically, goals have proven a likely occurrence, with each of the last 6 meetings seeing over 2.5 goals scored while 4 of those also saw BTTS.

While PSG have begun the season in great form, and they have now won 6 of their last 7 away league matches since the end of last season, scoring a stunning 31 goals in the process, Nantes should fancy their chances of at least hitting the target with PSG only keeping 4 clean sheets in 19 away Ligue 1 matches last season. PSG have been more defensively sound so far this season, though, with 2 clean sheets from 3 away matches completed.

With Nantes losing just 1 of their last 13 home league matches, PSG may not find this to be quite as easy an assignment as bookies odd would suggest. Nantes scored at least 1 goal in 11 of those matches, while they have scored a total of 13 in their last 6 unbeaten matches at the Stade de la Beaujoire. All 6 of those matches saw BTTS.

Ultimately, PSG will be fancied to return to league form, but we like the chances of BTTS here in a match that seems certain to also see at least 3 goals scored and given their history in this fixture, Nantes could make this a potentially closer contest than many might expect.
