Team Preview 

PSG takes on Nimes at the Stade des Costieres to continue their winning streak in 2020-21 Ligue 1. After losing two straight games, PSG added four victories in a row with a thumping 6-1 win over Angers last month. The reigning champions would aim to secure fifth consecutive victory on Friday evening. Thomas Tuchel's side netted 6 goals in the previous outing, thanks to Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Idrissa Gueye, Julian Draxler and Alessandro Florenzi. In all four winning encounters, they scored 12 goals in their last four matches and moved to top four after a shaky start to the season. Thomas Tuchel's men are just two points behind table-toppers Rennes and pretty confident to walk away with three more points. 

Meanwhile, Jerome Arpinon's side is unbeaten across three matches. Courtesy of 84th-minute strike from Renaud Ripart helped Les Crocodiles to overcome strong Montpellier. Nimes desperately needed three points after back-to-back draw matches against Lyon and Lens before the international break. Les Crocodiles are placed at 13th in the table and after positive results from the previous three games, Jerome Arpinon keen to find a positive result on Friday.
