PSG is starting the season after a season that was nothing but a failure.
The way they were eliminated from the Champions League and the fact that they have lost the league title to Monaco, will force PSG to take this league more seriously.
Despite everything, PSG still has the strongest squad in this Ligue 1, and with Neymar now, they might have gotten what they lacked last year: a leader.
Neymar is looking to be alone on the spotlight and leading a team, and I believe that he will be welcomed and praised at PSG.
Amiens make their debut in the first tier of French football. It is a team whose goal is to stay in this division and not get relegated.
They are far from having the same conditions, and objectives that PSG has. Their biggest signing was Kakuta, a player which offers some acceleration down the win, but not much more than that.
It is a team that struggles to maintain possession and that will probably be more clear against an opponent like PSG.
PSG vs Amiens Pick :
For this match i predict the victory of PSG. Losing points to a recently promoted team at home would be shocking and embarrassing, and the truth is that the squad should be motivated with the recent arrival of the Brazilian star Neymar.
They have a strong midfield and aggressive players in the last third of the pitch like Cavani and Di María, and I believe they will be able to control the pace of the game easily.
With that said, I don’t believe that Amiens can score in this match and I trust PSG to keep a clean sheet.
