French Super Cup 2024 – Trophée des Champions: PSG vs Toulouse

The French Super Cup 2024 sees Ligue 1 champions PSG take on Coupe de France winners Toulouse, with the Parisian giants aiming to win an 11th Trophée des Champions title in 12 occasions. 

It will be yet another opportunity for socios.com collaborators and serial winners PSG to burnish their trophy cabinet with a 31st trophy from the previous ten years – a quite staggering period of success. 

Below, we take a closer look at this fixture, its history, the expectations, and more. 

Official Confirmation – French Super Cup & Trophée des Champions Details Revealed

The French Football Winter Break takes place from 20th December 2023 until 13th and 14th January 2024, with one exception – the French Super Cup. 

It will be an incredible opportunity to work off the mince pies and chicken dinner for both sets of players when the match gets underway from 19:45 (UK time) on January 3rd 2024 at the Parc des Princes – the home of PSG. 

By then, French football fans will be thirsting for a return to football, and millions will tune in to watch the clash between a perennially in-form PSG and a dangerous Toulouse outfit that could relish their underdog status. 

PSG vs Toulouse – A Trophée des Champions Showdown

There’s no getting away from it, PSG are heavy, heavy favourites to win and add yet another trophy to their collection.  Some bookmakers have them as little 1.2 to win, while Toulouse are all the way out at 9.0. 

The prospects get worse for Toulouse when you consider their form this season – since the beginning of October, they have won just two of their previous 14 matches in all competitions. 

Conversely, PSG are in a rich vein of form (though when are they ever not?). They have lost just once in 14 matches across the board – a shock 2-1 defeat to AC Milan in the Champions League.

There is some hope for Toulouse – they managed to nab a point from PSG in their clash at the beginning of the campaign thanks to a late Zakaria Aboukhlal penalty cancelling out an earlier Kylian Mbappe penalty. They also have a previous cup final win under their belt, after smashing FC Nantes in the Coupe de France last season.

However, since Toulouse were promoted to Ligue 1 from Ligue 2 two seasons ago, they have drawn one and lost two of their league clashes with PSG, with an aggregate score of 6-1. It would be a monumental result should they cause a shock.

Match Details – Date, Time, and Venue for Trophée des Champions

Wherever you are in the world, ensure you tune in for what will likely be a fascinating Trophée des Champions. There is the possibility for a shock result that would reverberate around European football – who would want to miss that?

Trophée des Champions Format – French Football’s Prestigious Opening

The Trophée des Champions, also known as the French Super Cup, is a clash between the winners of Ligue 1 (the highest tier of French football) and Coupe de France (the annual knockout cup competition).

First introduced in 1949, the Trophée des Champions has a long-standing history in French football. It was originally known as the Challenge des champions and while over the years, the format and name have changed, its significance remains unchanged.
