Carefree PSG in Nantes

Nantes residents may have regrets. Eight months after their victory at La Beaujoire against the Parisians (3-1) and the score of 10/10 from Alban Lafont in our columnsthe Canaries this time lost at home against PSG (2-0), weighed down by the expulsion of Fabio.

Because before the Brazilian is excluded (see elsewhere)it was FC Nantes who started hostilities with a shot from outside the foot of Samuel Moutoussamy, just above, after a good job by Mostafa Mohamed in the box.

Then the Parisians accelerated: Danilo, served by Kylian Mbappé at the penalty spot, forced Alban Lafont to pull off a magnificent save (14th), Marquinhos grazed the post on the next corner (15th) and Kylian Mbappé opened the scoring ( 18th). At the origin of the opening of the scoring, a loss of ball from Jean-Charles Castelletto, caused by Pablo Sarabia, which led to a lightning counter-attack launched by Lionel Messi, very prominent this Saturday, and concluded by the French international with a strike from the inside of the foot of which he has the secret.


Since his debut in Ligue 1, Kylian Mbappé has scored 30 counterattack goals. He is ahead of Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) and Jamie Vardy (Leicester) in the five major European Championships (15 achievements). (Opt)

Despite PSG’s numerical advantage, the break goal only arrived in the 54th minute of play. A first time refused for an offside position at the start of the action, Mbappé’s double was awarded after intervention of the VAR. Before Nuno Mendes added to the bill (68th), the Frenchman gave way to Neymar (62nd), for their first Champions League match of the season. It will be Tuesday against Juventus, held in check earlier in the day by Fiorentina (1-1).

The fact: Fabio leaves his teammates at ten

We were playing the 24th minute of play when Vitinha, launched forward, was mowed down by Fabio in the center circle. Guilty of a sole on the knee of the Portuguese, the Brazilian left side was excluded directly by Pierre Gaillouste, who did not even need to call the VAR to confirm his decision. If the midfielder got up at first and seemed ready to resume, he then sat down on the lawn, touching his right knee, and was replaced by Renato Sanches (33rd).
