Clermont vs. PSG live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Ligue 1

Sports

PSG will begin their Ligue 1 title defense with a road trip to face Clermont Foot, the first of a 38-match league marathon that once again sees Les Parisiens as the favorites. 

New manager Christophe Galtier will field the same lineup for the second week in a row after last week’s 4-0 thumping of Nantes in the Trophee des Champions match between the Ligue 1 champions and the Coupe de France winners.

That means no Kylian Mbappe, who was suspended last week, but misses the Clermont trip with an adductor injury picked up in training. Lionel Messi and Neymar will lead the attack with Pablo Sarabia filling in for Mbappe.

A single point from this game would be gold for a Clermont Foot team that is in only its second season in the French top flight and narrowly escaped relegation to the second division. They finished four points above the relegation zone and will be in the mix to go down once again. With four teams going down this season — Ligue 1 is going down to 18 teams beginning next season — the danger will be greater.

Clermont vs PSG live updates, highlights from Ligue 1

6th min.: PSG’s first chance comes off the foot of Neymar who turns on a Hakimi cross near the penalty spot. It’s deflected for a corner but nothing comes of it.

3rd min.: Komnen Andric with a header that was an easy grab for Gigi Donnarumma. The cross came from the left side from left wingback Neto Borges. Clermont need Andric to be productive to have any success this season.

1st min.: We’re underway at the Gabriel Montpied Stadium. PSG in their gray kit, kick things off.

30 mins from kickoff: Christophe Galtier is already standing out from his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino, who between Jan. 2021 and May 2022 never fielded an identical lineup two matches in a row. See Opta’s note below.
