PSG vs Nantes match stats

PSG will be looking for their 20th Ligue 1 win of the season, a tally that only three teams have reached by matchday 26 in a French top-flight season (all going on to win the title in those respective campaigns): Sochaux in 1934/35 (20), St Etienne in 1968/69 (20) and PSG themselves four times in the QSI era (22 in 2015/16 and 2017/18, 23 in 2018/19 and 21 in 2019/20).

Currently on 200 goals (joint with Edinson Cavani), Kylian Mbappé could become the outright top scorer for PSG in all competitions in this game. He is still behind Cavani on the number of goals in Ligue 1 with PSG: 136 (in 163 games) for Mbappé and 138 (in 200 games) for Cavani.

Since returning from Qatar he’s bagged 10 goals across nine matches in all competitions. Mbappe famously became the second-ever men’s player to register a World Cup final hat-trick, but was on the losing team, Argentina’s goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was seen comforting the marksman following the shootout and has now revealed a part of their conversation.

“I told him to get up and to look forward,” the Aston Villa shot-stopper revealed in a conversation with TyC Sports. “He shouldn’t be on the floor, but proud of the game he had played, which is the truth. He scored four goals against me. The one who should be on the floor is me.”

Nantes have picked up as many points away from home in five games since the resumption of Ligue 1 in December (eight – two wins, two draws and one loss) as in their previous 14 (one win, five draws and eight losses). Ignatius Ganago, meanwhile, has scored four goals in six Ligue 1 games against PSG, his favourite opponent in the top-flight (0.67 goals/game). Among the current Ligue 1 players with more than one goal against PSG, only Kevin Volland has a better ratio against them than the Nantes striker (1 goal/game).
