Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
PSG will be looking to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Monaco when they host Bordeaux at their Parc des Princes on Matchday 12. Les Parisiens aim to retain top position in the standings, and the good news for the title holders is that Brazil ace Neymar returns to the starting XI. Centre-back Diallo is banned, with Marquinhos likely to step up. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Kylian Mbappe, who scored a brace against his former club at the weekend.
Les Girondins, on the other hand, did well to beat Rennes on the road on Matchday 11, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Parc des Princes showdown. Hatem Ben Arfa, who scored the winner against Rennes, is likely to pose a big threat for PSG defenders. Even though Pablo is back from suspension for Bordeaux, the visitors are unlikely to spoil PSG’s party in Paris as the reigning champions are eager to return to winning ways.
