PSG vs Nantes
French Ligue 1
Date: 4 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
PSG made a huge step towards the new Ligue 1 silverware with a huge 0-3 victory over main rivals Marseille in the last weekend’s Le Classique.
Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi led Les Parisiens to a massive three-pointer at Stade Orange-Velodrome. The former had two goals and one assist, while the latter managed one goal and two assists on the occasion.
PSG are thus once again eight points clear atop the standings and they will have a nice chance to extend the lead on Saturday evening in the home fixture against out-of-form Nantes.
Head coach Chris Galtier can be pleased with his team’s attacking form in the recent outings as Les Parisiens bagged seven goals in the back-to-back wins over Lille and Marseille.
Nantes will come into this in a completely opposite mood after a run of three straight defeats in all competitions.
Les Canaris conceded three goals in each of the back-to-back failures against Lens and Juventus, while they completed the negative thread with a 0-1 home loss at the hands of Rennes on Sunday.
To make things more complicated for Antoine Kombouare and his men ahead of the trip to the capital, Nantes had a tough Coupe de France quarterfinal tie against Lens just three days ago at Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau.
