Paris Saint-Germain FC v OGC Nice Côte d’Azur Live Commentary & Result, 27/10/2017, Ligue 1

With just 10 points from 10 matches in Ligue 1, Nice are dangerously close to the relegation zone, just one point – albeit for places – up on the bottom three. Confidence is low, but they got a result in this fixture last season and another tonight might be exactly what they need to kick-start their campaign.

Nice came into the season with lofty expectations following their third-place finish in 2016/17, but nothing has gone according to plan for them, missing out on the Champions League and stumbling through the first two months of league play.

PSG sit atop the Ligue 1 table, four-points clear of second-place Monaco and lead their Champions League group with three wins from three. They failed to beat Nice in either fixture last season, so this shapes up as a revenge spot for them tonight.

Life with Neymar has been sunshine and rainbows for PSG, but we will find out what life without him will be like tonight as the Brazilian is suspended following his sending off in Marseille last weekend.

Hello and welcome to Parc des Princes for live coverage of this Ligue 1 duel as French leaders PSG host Nice in a battle of top-three teams from last season!
