Goal; PSG 1:0 Nice; Watch Lionel Messi most awesome free kick goal to earn lead for PSG better than Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe
Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the table in Ligue 1 with a win against Nice on Saturday.
The defending champions head into this fixture with only a two-point lead at the top of the table over second-placed Marseille.
Nice are struggling in the bottom half of the league standings, having managed to win just two league games so far this season.
They are set to take on a monumental challenge, with PSG registering impressive performances in recent matches and the trio of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar in good form.

Unsurprisingly greeted by a hostile atmosphere at Lyon’s Groupama Stadium, PSG took all of five minutes to silence the home crowd, as two of their famed front three in Neymar and Lionel Messi combined for the latter to fire home the opener early doors.
The Argentine did not even need to take a touch before curling home into the bottom corner, but Galtier was thanking his lucky stars after seeing Alexandre Lacazette spurn a magnificent chance to level for his side, heading wide from only a few yards out.
The rampant champions stood firm to hold on for their sixth win on the bounce in all competitions – and fourth in a row in Ligue 1 – which allowed them to open up a two-point gap over Marseille at the top of the standings after Les Olympiens could only draw 1-1 with Rennes.
PSG could be dethroned by the time Saturday rolls around if Marseille can return to winning ways against Angers on Friday night, but the Parisiens faithful will expect to see their side quickly return to the summit at the Parc des Princes fortress.
