PSG continue impressive start to the season

PSG are continuing their strong current form at present and as expected are clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table. They are eight time winners of the French top flight since the club was founded back in 1970. PSG have had much investment in the club, which has led to their great success in recent times. This includes them winning the top flight for the last two years in succession. They were also very well supported by punters prior to the current campaign, with the offers available at This includes numerous welcome bonuses in order to boost these selections.

The main aim for PSG in recent years has been to win the Champions’ League and they again look to have a solid chance this season. They have progressed through to the knockout stages with ease and will now face off against Dortmund in the round of 16. The first leg will be taking place in Germany on the 18th of February, before the return leg back in Paris on the 11th of March. They will be strong favourites to progress through, as they also remain amongst the favourites for the title.

Moving back to the domestic league and PSG already appear to have a stranglehold on the title. Following the opening 20 matches played, they have picked up 49 points out of a possible 60, winning 16, drawing one and losing just three. This means they have a lead of eight points at the top of the table, with the nearest side at present being Marseille. Other sides at the top of the table include the likes of Rennes, Nantes and Lille. It will come as a surprise to many that neither Lyon or Monaco are in the top six, as they have long been two of the main threats to PSG in recent seasons.

PSG are currently in extremely strong form and have not been beaten since back in November. This came through a 2-1 away loss against Dijon FCO but since then they have gone from strength to strength. They followed this up with two league wins against Brest and Lille in November, on side of a victory over Club Brugge and a draw with Real Madrid in the Champion’s league group stages.

PSG then started December with two league wins over Nantes and Montpellier. This set them up for a hugely impressive 5-0 home win over Galatasaray in the Champions’ League, a victory which meant they topped their group. The French champions then finished 2019 with three further victories, that included them scoring 12 goals and conceding just two.

The side then started 2020 in similar form, firstly beating linas-Montlhery 6-0 in the French cup, before a 6-1 home win over St-Etienne in the quarter-final of the Coupe de la Ligue. PSG then had two consecutive games against Monaco in Ligue 1. They were surprisingly held to a 3-3 draw in the Parc des Princes, before dominating them in a 4-1 away victory just four days later.

Since then, PSG have now won a further two cup matches and continue their remarkable unbeaten run. It all sets up for a fascinating remaining season ahead and it will be interesting whether they can go on and challenge in to the latter stages of the Champions’ League.
