PSG vs Clermont Foot score prediction
PSG and Clermont have only met three times in their respective histories. With all of their encounters coming in the last two years.

Understandably, Les Parisiens have won each match once by four goals and twice by five goals. There’s no reason to think that trend will change.

When PSG are coasting, they’re often at their free-flowing best. Add in that this is Messi’s send-off and Kylian Mbappe is trying to fend off Alexandre Lacazette for the Golden Boot and they should have enough motivation not to completely sail through this one too.

Aiming to celebrate their Ligue 1 title coronation in the right way and end another turbulent campaign with a flourish, Paris Saint-Germain welcome Clermont to the Parc des Princes for Saturday’s finale.

Christophe Galtier’s team wrapped up their 11th top-flight crown in a 1-1 draw with Strasbourg last weekend, while their visitors are certain of a top-half finish in a campaign that has exceeded all expectations.

As was the case 12 months ago, confirmation of PSG’s status as top dogs in France was followed by relatively muted celebrations, as Les Parisiens successfully retained their crown despite failing to assert their dominance on the Stade de la Meinau turf.

Lionel Messi’s opener on the stroke of the hour mark was cancelle out by former Parisiens striker Kevin Gameiro some 20 minutes later. The capital giants only require a point from their final two fixtures to stave off the challenge of Lens and end the season with a domestic double. Having won the Trophee des Champions in Galtier’s inaugural game.

Despite delivering a duo of trophies to the Parc des Princes, Saturday’s affair is widely expecte to be Galtier’s last in the Parisiens’ hotseat – despite outlining his intentions to stay put. As another obligatory title triumph papers over the cracks of their continue Champions League curse and ongoing off-field controversies.

Success for PSG on Saturday would take them onto 27 victories and 88 points for the campaign – a higher tally than Mauricio Pochettino achieved in the 2020-21 (82) or 2021-22 (86) seasons – and the champions’ most recent encounter in front of their own fans ended in a 5-0 thrashing of Ajaccio.
