Paris Saint-Germain and Nantes will take on each other at Bloomfield in Tel Aviv for the first French title of the season, the Trophee des Champions, on Sunday. The Parisians are heading into the match on the back of a 6-2 win over Gamba Osaka in a friendly match last Monday, while Nantes suffered a 1-0 defeat to Rennes in their recent pre-season outing two days later. PSG won the Ligue 1 title last term by collecting 86 points from 38 games, 15 points from second-placed Marseille. Nantes, on the other hand, won the 2021-22 French Cup title by defeating Nice 1-0 in the final, last May. 

PSG had an impressive pre-season campaign in Asia, winning all four friendlies against Japanese outfits, Quevilly- Rouen (2-0), Kawasaki (2-1), Urawa Reds (3-0) and Gamba Osaka. Failure to perform well at the European competition, losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League last-16 stage, led to Mauricio Pochettino’s departure and the club management has brought in Christopher Galtier to replace the Argentine tactician.  The former Lille-man has been experimenting with a 3-4-1-2 setup in the pre-season. Nordi Mukiele, Hugo Ekitike and Vitinha are the new signings. 

Nantes, on the other hand, began their pre-season with a 1-0 defeat to Guingamp before getting the better of Caen (2-0) and Lorient (2-0), and then lost to Rennes last Wednesday. Antonine Kombouare finished 9th in the Ligue 1 standings last term with 55 points. Les Canaries have had the better head-to-head record against the Parisians, off late, winning two of their last three meetings. Nantes have won the Trophee des Champions only two times before  and that was in 1999 and 2001.
