PSG vs. Clermont: this is how the teams arrive
With renewed airs with Christophe Galtier on the bench in place of Mauricio Pochettino, Paris Saint-Germain begins the defense of its title in Ligue 1. “When you train PSG you have more pressure than in other places. It’s a club that has a habit of winning trophies.”admitted the new coach of the capital team.
Galtier was the architect of Lille being champion in 2021, just ahead of PSG. From the outset, PSG were already able to celebrate their first title of the season by winning the Champions Trophy (French Super Cup) last Saturday, with a 4-0 win over Nantes, with a brace from Neymar and goals from Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos .
Clermont, seventeenth last season, seems called to fight for permanence, in a very dangerous season in the lower zone, since there will be four direct relegations, to reduce the number of clubs in the first division from 20 to 18.
