PSG opened up an eight-point advantage at the top of the Ligue 1 standings with victory in their previous game. The Parisians will be bidding to extend that advantage on Saturday when they take on Nantes at the Parc des Princes.
Ligue 1 Preview
PSG’s grip on the Ligue 1 title was tightened last weekend, as they moved eight points clear of the chasing pack. It has been a good week for the club off the field, as Lionel Messi was crowned the best player in the world at the FIFA Best awards, and the Argentinean could be celebrating another domestic title in the final months of the season based on the recent PSG performances.
The Parisians were excellent in their previous fixture, as they hammered second-place Marseille 3-0 away from home. All goals were scored in the first 55 minutes of the match, with Kylian Mbappe scoring twice to become the club’s outright leading scorer. Messi also scored in the straightforward success, as a second title in a row for PSG is now beginning to look like a formality.
Nantes will be the visitors this weekend, as they look to respond after losing their previous two matches in Ligue 1. They sit down in 13th place in the French standings, but they are currently seven points clear of the relegation places in the table. However, they will need to get back on track to ease any worries that they could get dragged back into the scrap at the bottom of the standings.
Nantes suffered a second straight league defeat in their previous fixture, as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Rennes. However, their response after going behind was fairly impressive, as they managed eight shots on target but they just couldn’t find a way past the Rennes goalkeeper, who was in inspired form.
