Nantes vs PSG: Match Stats
Nantes last played European football in 2004/05 and with the way they’re performing now chances of ending that drought seem high. Scoring, though, has been somewhat of an issue. Of the sides currently occupying Ligue 1’s top 10 they have netted the fewest goals (31), this has subsequently produced tight games and their last ten league outings have been settled by a margin of over 1.5 goals.
PSG are now 15 unbeaten they’re in buoyant mood following a Champions League win over Real Madrid earlier in the week. Kylian Mbappe’s future might still be in doubt but there’s no question he’s committed to PSG’s cause this season. The prolific French forward has bagged 12 goals across 22 league matches this season and he will fancy his chances here. Nantes have kept just four clean sheets in 15 and PSG have only blanked twice in that same period of time.
The reverse fixture came in November and saw the hosts run out comfortable 3-1 winners. Prior to that Nantes inflicted a rare defeat on PSG subsequently ending a three-game winless streak against this opponent. Kylian Mbappe has two in the last three head-to-heads.
