Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won all four of their league matches, bouncing back from the disappointment of losing the French Super Cup to Lille in the traditional curtain-raiser of the season.
Clermont for their part have two wins and two draws from their opening four encounters in what is their debut season in France’s top flight.

Paris Saint-Germain vs Clermont team news
The Parisians are likely to be missing a host of key players with Sergio Ramos, Colin Dagba and Juan Bernat are likely to be still sidelined with their respective long-term injuries while Marco Verratti is a doubt.
Kylian Mbappe picked up an injury while on international duty with France and is also a doubt, while Lionel Messi, Neymar, Angelo Di Maria and Leandro Paredes have all been in World Cup qualifying action in South American and will not be involved.
Clermont have no major injury concerns heading into this weekend.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Clermont preview
The visitors have made a flying start to life in the upper reaches of French football with Pascal Gastien’s men scoring at least twice in each of their four games.
Indeed, only PSG have scored more goals this season than the division’s debutants and, with the Parisians missing so many important players, there is every chance that Clermont can keep their scoring run going.
Pochettino’s team have kept just one clean sheet in the five competitive matches they have contested so far this term and there should be plenty of interest in backing the visitors to get on the score sheet at the Parc des Princes.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Clermont tips & predictions
Both teams to score can be backed at 4/5 (1.80) while Clermont are offered at 10/3 (4.33) to score over 1.5 goals, something that both Strasbourg and Brest have already managed against PSG this campaign.
