Nantes vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 17th April 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire (Nantes).
Twice in a row, PSG lost their chance to consolidate their league title. They had to win in their match before the last one, and thanks to some extraordinary bottling, they were not able to. Last match-day, all they had to do was secure a draw. Still, they could not. The team saw an early red, and Lille took advantage of the situation and won the fixture in style.
Nantes may be in the lower tier, but they are not actually that worried about relegation. The reason being their ten-point buffer over the 18th placed Dijon in the league table. And as such, against a wounded PSG, no one would fault them if they lost.

Nantes vs PSG Prediction
Paris may find life tough in Europe, but no one needs to teach them how to devastate the Farmers’ League. They simply are in another dimension compared to the other teams in the competition, that something needs to be done if Ligue does not want to lose its credibility.
Coming to this tie, Paris won the last 18 h2h matches in a row, the last seven at this venue, and has conceded just two goals in the last ten encounters. They are about to seal the league title with almost six matches to spare, whereas Nantes is a low-lying 15th placed team in the table.
PSG has no Champions League left to play for (surprise, surprise!), and count on them to take out their frustration on some poor Ligue 1 team.
Paris has been such a bully to other squads in France, that if they manage to seal the league title by the 30th match-day next year, it won’t be a surprise. (Seriously, France – do something. Maybe you could ask the likes of Kylian Mbappe to play with his hands tied behind his back)
PSG already lost two chances to mathematically make sure of the league crown. It won’t happen a third time and that too against some team that they have defeated 18 times in a row. Moreover, Kylian Mbappe is in the Golden Boot Race against Lionel Messi, and the former lags by six goals. He’ll be in the mood to score.
Expect a massive win for the Parisians.
