The first match of the season will oppose as usual the champion of France to the winner of the Coupe de France.
This means that PSG will face FC Nantes, in a poster that promises a lot by its intensity. Last season, the Parisians lost the Trophée des Champions to Lille. As in 2021, the meeting will take place in Israel, at the Bloomberg Stadium in Tel Aviv.

The statement of the coach
Christophe Galtier, PSG coach: “ To win. It’s a trophy, we talked a lot about it at the start of the season. Everyone is focused on the Champions League but first we have to do everything we can to win the three national trophies. Last year we failed to win. I don’t know if we should try to convince. The better we play, the more chances we have of winning. In Japan, we saw interesting things, there were things to correct but the most important thing is to win »
