French Ligue 1Nantes 0-3 PSG

Nantes 0-3 PSG

PSG cruise to a 3-0 win over 10-man Nantes. Mbappe opened the scoring in the first half, curling a shot into the top corner after a quick break.

Five minutes later, Fabio was sent off after catching Vitinha with a high boot.

Mbappe’s second, a tap-in from close range, was initially disallowed for offside, but VAR overturned the onfield decision.

Mendes then came off the bench to round off the scoring, firing past Lafont after Neymar hit the post.

Starting lineup:

NANTES STARTING XI (5-3-2): Alban Lafont; Dennis Appiah, Jean-Charles Castelletto, Andrei Girotto, Nicolas Pallois, Fabio; Samuel Moutoussamy, Pedro Chirivella, Ludovic Blas; Evann Guessand, Mostafa Mohamed.

NANTES SUBS: Marcus Coco, Remy Descamps, Ignatius Ganago, Abdoul Kader Bamba, Denis Petric, Lohann Doucet, Mohamed Achi, Sebastien Corchia, Michel Diaz.

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN STARTING XI (4-3-3): Gianluigi Donnarumma; Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Juan Bernat; Danilo Pereira, Marco Verratti, Vitinha; Pablo Sarabia, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe.

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN SUBS: Renato Sanches, Nordi Mukiele, Carlos Soler, Sergio Ramos, Nuno Mendes, Hugo Ekitike, Keylor Navas, WArren Zaire Emery, Neymar.

Goals:

MBAPPE SCORES! Castelletto loses the ball in PSG’s half and Messi has space to run into as he breaks through the middle. He plays it left to Mbappe, who has time in the box to take a touch before curling a brilliant strike over Lafont and into the far top corner. 1-0 PSG!

MBAPPE SCORES! Mbappe breaks quickly through the middle again, but this time, he unselfishly lays it off to Messi. A block from Pallois forces him wide, but he squares it back to Mbappe, who finishes the move. The offside flag goes up against him for earlier in the move, but a VAR check shows he was just onside. 2-0 PSG!

MENDES SCORES! Hakimi’s low cross is just behind Sanches, but it runs through to Neymar at the far post and he smacks his first-time effort off the woodwork. It rebounds back to Mendes, who curls his shot over Lafont and into the far top corner. 3-0 PSG!

So, what’s next?

That win lifts PSG back to the top of the table, above Marseille on goal difference.

Next up for them is Juventus in the Champions League.

Nantes stay in 10th, but their attention now turns to the Europa League when they host Olympiacos.
