PSG vs OGC Nice – Ligue 1 Preview
The Parisians are set to host Nice as the Ligue 1 heads into round 25 on Saturday. Adrian Ursea and team will be coming to face PSG with the hopes of grabbing one or two points from Mauricio Pochettino‘s PSG who currently sits on 3rd in League table with 51 points from 24 matches. Meanwhile PSG, who are set to face FC Barcelona in the Quarter-finals of UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE will be looking for a win against Nice to maintain their winning run and to boost self confidence ahead of their clash against FC Barcelona which is set to take on 17th Feb at Camp Nou.

The Parisians won their last league games against Olympique de Marseille away from home with a comfortable 0-2 margin as Mbappe & Icardi both wrote their name once again in the scoresheet & Dimitri Payet got a red Card at the 90th minute. With a run of good form from PSG, Pochettino will be looking to grab all 3 points from the 13th placed OGC Nice at Le Parc des Princes.
Meanwhile, with just 2 wins & 3 looses in their last 5 games in the league, OGC Nice aren’t looking comfortable right now as they are not willing to face another set off this time from PSG. Adrian Ursea and team had a comfortable win in their last league game against Angers who were the visitors this time & Nice bagged all three points with a 3-0 margin.
Head to head results
PSG have only lost once in their last 15 meetings against OGC Nice, having won 12, drawn 2 & lost 1 (3-1) back in 2017 with scoring an average of 2.5 goals per match.

With a long list of injuries to tackle, Pochettino will be having a little headache in choosing his team as Neymar is the new name on the injury list who picked up a slight injury in his last match against Caen in the French cup round of 64. Keylor Navas, Colin Dagba, Juan Bernat and Ander Herrera and Angel Di maria are the other names on the list as well.
