Paris Saint-Germain warm up for their crucial Champions League Round of 16 second leg against Bayern Munich in midweek with a Ligue 1 clash at home to Nantes this weekend.
A dominant 3-0 win in last weekend’s Le Classique trip to Marseille put PSG eight points clear in the title race and Christophe Galtier’s focus will now be split between the league title and staying in Europe.
The Parisians are expected to ease over the line in Ligue 1, but they face a battle to avoid a fifth Round of 16 exit in seven seasons as they trail 1-0 to Bayern ahead of the second leg in Germany.
Here’s all the key information on the match including kickoff time, live streaming and TV channels, lineups and betting odds.

PSG vs Nantes lineups
The prospect of heading to Bayern will play a key role in Galtier’s selections for this game, with Italy international Marco Verratti already ruled out through suspension, Renato Sanches not yet fully fit and Achraf Hakimi unavailable.
Presnel Kimpembe is unlikely to feature again this season, and with Neymar now ruled out of the trip to Germany, the hosts will rest certain key players.

PSG subs: Rico (GK), Letellier (GK), Bernat, Ramos, Soler, Pembele, Gharbi, Housni, Messi
Nantes head coach Antoine Kombouare is still without key pair Nicolas Pallois and Quentin Merlin through injury but he is not expected to make sweeping changes from their midweek Coupe de France win over Lens.
Former Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella is set to return with Evann Guessand dropping out.

PSG vs Nantes prediction, odds
PSG’s run to the title looks all set to be smooth in the weeks ahead, with Galtier’s hosts losing just once in their past six league games, and they are unbeaten at home in Ligue 1 since the start of 2022/23.
Nantes are not clear of relegation danger, with the visitors just seven points above the drop zone, and they have picked up just two wins in their own most recent six league outings.

|Both teams to score Y/N||-111 / -128||10/11, 4/5||1.85 / 1.85||1.83 / 1.77|
