Our football match prediction:
PSG will be aiming to build on a thrilling 5-0 win over Angers when they square off against Nantes at their Parc des Princes on Matchday 13. Les Parisiens aim to cement top position in the Ligue 1 standings and they are likely to go all guns blazing at les Canaris in Saturday’s football match. Unai Emery’s troops aim to keep their 100% record at home intact, but Nantes should not be underestimated. Les Canaris have been producing fine performances in the first half of the season and, as a result, they sit in fifth place in the Ligue 1 standings ahead of Matchday 13. Nantes are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but their away record is anything but magnificent and that is the main reason why we do not believe the visitors will spoil claim a major scalp on Matchday 13.
