THE Ligue 1 title is a minimum requirement as a PSG manager.
Mauricio Pochettino knew this from the moment he took over the reigns of the Parisian outfit.
With a 12-point gap between first and second, everything seems to be going to plan for the Argentine manager.
Nice now have Lille’s title-winning coach, Christophe Galtier, at the helm. Sitting third in the table, some way off today’s opponents, the visitors know the importance of closing the gap with their rivals.
With Neymar still out following his horrific injury against St Etienne, it offers some glimmer of hope for Nice to do the unthinkable and come away from the Parc des Princes with all three points.
Now moving onto his next challenge, the task does not get much tougher than facing PSG’s side with world class talent oozing through their squad.
He managed to do just that with Lille in their title-winning season, can lightening really strike again in the French capital?
