PSG to win both halves

The Ligue 1 giants are not a team to wish away and will likely win both halves in this game. After all, they defeated Troyes in the last seven meetings, five of which were clean-sheet victories.

Kylian Mbappe to find the net anytime

Even though Mbappe failed to inspire the Euros for France, the French talisman is a lethal striker with lightning speed. Mbappe was the Ligue 1 top scorer last season and we fancy him to open his scoring account as early as in the first game of the new season against a promoted side, Troyes.

More than two goals are expected at full-time

We are also expecting lots of goals in this game. This should be an easy one for PSG as they look to go ahead on goal-advantage like they did last season. The visitors are known to score lots of goals against weaker opponents and are by far, the clear favourites to score at least two goals in this game.

Game Preview: Troyes Faces a Tough Start after Ligue 1 Comeback

Troyes kicks off Ligue 1 campaign against the Parisians after promotion to the top flight last season. Do they have a chance of winning this game? Read our game preview below for more details.

Troyes

A successful campaign in Ligue 2 earned Troyes a much-deserved promotion to the top flight. However, kicking off the season against PSG presents the hosts with a tough test. Troyes has been out of Ligue 1 for two seasons, and what a way to get things underway for Laurent Batlles and his squad!  Batlles steered Troyes to Ligue 2 trophy last season but this will be his first encounter with PSG. He previously coached Saint-Etienne B. Moreover, the hosts hope to recover from poor run in pre-season fixtures of 1W, 1D and 2L as they kick-off a journey that could see them stay up to drop back to Ligue 1.

PSG

PSG will be keen to avoid mistakes that denied them Ligue 1 title last season. They fell short of the title by only a point despite being the highest-scoring team in the 2020/21 season. Moreover, the visitors had a formidable defence that leaked in 28 goals in Ligue 1 last season, the second-least in the league behind Lille. And despite losing 1-0 to Lille in the French Cup a few days ago, the Ligue 1 giants were the better side with 71% ball possession even though they lost more possession (123) than Lille (98) in the Cup final. This fixture presents PSG head coach, Mauricio Pochettino, with a chance to get things right from the onset of a new season and we don’t think he will waste it.
