The French Super Cup, aka the Trophee des Champions, will be contested on Saturday at the Workers Stadium in Beijing, China.

The French Super Cup pits the winner of Ligue 1 (Paris Saint Germain) vs the winner of the Coupe de France (Guingamp).

Paris Saint-Germain will be looking for its second French Super Cup in a row and third of its existence, as they managed to topple Bordeaux last season 2-1, with the match being held in Stade d'Angondje in Libreville, Gabon. The French Super Cup is played at a wide variety of different venues across the world in order to introduce new fans to teams such as PSG and Guingamp.

As you can probably imagine, PSG is the prohibitive favourite to win on Saturday. Here are the current betting odds:

Paris Saint-Germain, 1.36
Draw, 4.60
Guingamp, 9.00

According to the bookmakers, the likeliest outcomes of Saturday's match are 1-0 and 2-0 victories for Paris Saint-Germain - both outcomes are currently listed at 6.50.

The fans in China are likely to get a glimpse of such players as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani, albeit in limited action. With the start of Ligue 1 just a few weeks away, Paris Saint-Germain will likely not want to risk the health of their two best players by letting them stay in for the entire game.
