Paris St-Germain v Nimes 8pm
Champions PSG have won their last four opening-day fixtures without conceding and that looks much the likeliest outcome when they host a Nimes side who lost seven of their final ten away matches last season.
Kylian Mbappe racked up 33 goals last season and notched in the 2-1 Super Cup win over Rennes last weekend.

Lille ended last term with the second-best home scoring record in the division and netted 16 goals in their last four home games of the season.
Over 1.5 Lille goals
