PSG face a test at Troyes

PSG begin their quest to wrestle back the Ligue 1 title away at newly promoted Troyes this Saturday, and while a win is expected for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, they could be made to work for it by the Ligue 2 champions.

A campaign consisting off Coupe de France glory and a run to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League would be considered a success for every other club in France apart from PSG, who essentially took a backward step on the continent in 2020/21 following their final appearance the previous season, while also relinquishing their stranglehold on Ligue 1 to newly crowned champions Lille.

We can be certain that Les Parisiens will be out to prove a point from the off this Saturday and the additions of Gini Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi and Gianluigi Donnarumma over the summer indicate that the PSG top brass mean business. Regaining the title this term is the minimum expectation for Pochettino’s stars and they’re 1/5 outright favourites to oblige.

PSG didn’t get their campaign off to the greatest of starts though with a 1-0 defeat to Lille in Trophee des Champions and it may take their new look side a few weeks to hit top gear.

This is a no lose situation for Troyes who are likely to relish such a challenge on the opening weekend, at a venue where they won 15 of their 19 games last term en route to the Ligue 2 title.

They netted in all of those matches and could be good for a goal this Saturday, with PSG conceding in five of their last seven games in 2020/21 despite winning six of those (D1), and in four of their last five on the road despite amassing 13 points from those away trips.

We expect PSG to simply have too much quality here, but changes in their defensive ranks and a fired up Troyes side who are used to winning at home mean we’re predicting an away victory with both teams scoring. With the Parisian giants fancied to ease clear late in the piece after a competitive start, we’re also forecasting a 1-3 score-line.
