Any way you slice it, it looks like PSG will be coming out on top of this contest. They’ve won the Ligue 1 title eight times in the last 10 seasons, and will be looking to defend last year’s championship yet again. They just signed superstar Kylian Mbappe to a hefty three-year deal that will keep the young phenom in Paris for the foreseeable future, and they’ve got a who’s-who of world football on their roster including Lionel Messi, Neymar, Sergio Ramos, Mauro Icardi, Keylor Navas, and so many more.

Clermont Foot was promoted to Ligue 1 ahead of the 2021-22 season for the first time in their history, and they narrowly escaped relegation by the end of last year. They finished in 17th place with 36 points, just four points ahead of Saint-Etienne who occupied the lone relegation playoff spot. They’ll look to stay in the top flight again after another full season, but they’ve got their work cut out for them as they kick off the campaign against giants like PSG.

The two sides met twice last season as PSG cruised to 4-0 and 6-1 wins. Expect the defending champs to come out and easily get the win, most likely by multiple goals again.
