PSG host Nantes this weekend at the Parc des Princes as they look to widen the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table.

Mauricio Pochettino's side sit 10 points clear at the summit of the table, boasting 11 victories out of 13 in Ligue 1 as they prepare for a crunch Champions League trip to face Man City this midweek.

Nantes, meanwhile, are marooned in mid-table and have not won away from home since September - although even a point this weekend would lift them to the cusp of the European places such is the congested nature of the league table.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

PSG won't require a reminder of the threat of Nantes after they were stunned at home by the Canaries last season as they surrendered the Ligue 1 title to Lille.

Predictably, PSG boast the upper hand in their meetings with Nantes over the years however, having only lost once at home to the Canaries since 1998.

With PSG likely to rotate with their trip to Manchester in mind, Nantes may view this as a golden opportunity to spring a surprise on the runaway league leaders.

However, the Parisiens boast immense strength in depth and, although the performances haven't totally convinced supporters this season, they are still usually able to get over the line at the Parc des Princes.

Prediction: PSG 2-0 Nantes
