Ligue 1: PSG vs Nantes live
PSG will resume their Ligue 1 campaign today, following the international break, when they host Nantes at 18:00 (SAST) at Parc des Princes. PSG had a difficult 3-2 win against Bordeaux in their last match, and the break will help them regain their form when they face Nantes today. Jeremy Stinat will be the main referee for this game.
PSG have a 10-point advantage as they sit top of the Ligue 1 table. In today’s meeting against Nantes who sit 16 points behind the host team, Pochettino and his team are expected to put on a good show, and Messi is still expected to score his first goal for the team after his debut. PSG have only lost one game in Ligue 1 this season and have 11 wins out of their 13 games.
Nantes have only won one of their last four Ligue 1 games, and they will be expecting to grab some, if not all of the points, from the hosts today. However, in order to beat PSG who continue to have a solid season, Nantes will need to elevate their game.
PSG have won three games in the last five Ligue 1 meetings with Nantes, with the remaining two games being won by Nantes. Their previous encounter in the league ended in a 2-1 victory to Nantes.
PSG are the favourites, but they appear to have lost their sharp form recently. Nevertheless, PSG are likely to win tonight’s game considering their squad quality and momentum going into the game. Nantes could however surprise PSG if the home side let complacency set in.
PSG XI: Navas; Hakimi, Kehrer, Diallo, Bernat; Paredes, Gueye, Verratti; Messi, Mbappé, Neymar
Nantes XI: Lafont; Fabio, Girotto, Castelletto, Corchia; Coco, Chirivella, Moutoussamy, Blas; Muani, Coulibaly
