It was, after two draws, their third consecutive defeat in the preparatory period but nevertheless they started the new season with the away victory.

PSG was the French champion six times in last seven seasons and they won the title in last two seasons. With winning the Super Cup in China they somewhat revenged to Rennes for defeat in the final of the French Cup after penalties. In the first round they won at home Nimes by sound 3-0 where the scorers were Cavani, Mbappe and Di Maria.
Mbappe and Di Maria were scorers when PSG turned the result up-side down against Rennes in the Super Cup and they are obviously PSG’s striking due in Neymar absence who is injured and the club tries to sell him in this transfer window. Herrera and Kimpembe didn’t play in the previous round as they were injured, where the latter, just like Neymar, is questionable for this match. Kehrer won’t play now as well.
Probable lineups PSG: Areola- Dagba, Silva, Diallo, Bernart- Sarabia, Marcuinhos, Verratti, Draxler- Mbappe, Cavani.
