PSG vs Clermont Foot Preview
Clermont Foot are currently in eighth place in the Ligue 1 standings and have consistently punched above their weight this season. The away side defeated Lorient by a comprehensive 2-0 scoreline last week and will be confident ahead of this match.
PSG, on the other hand, are at the top of the league table at the moment and have successfully retained their Ligue 1 crown. The Parisian giants were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by Strasbourg in their previous game and will look to take it up a notch this weekend.

PSG have flattered to deceive in Ligue 1 and will be intent on capping their season off on a positive note. Lionel Messi found the back of the net against Strasbourg and will look to replicate the feat in what could be his last match in a Parisian shirt.
