Nantes bleeds Paris Saint-Germain

Four days after Real, Paris took a wall at Beaujoire (3-1), finding themselves led by three pawns at the break by Canaries in a trance and finding themselves trapped by the scenario. A real reference match for Nantes.

FC Nantes 3-1 Paris SG

Goals: Kolo Muani (4and), Merlin (16and) & Blas (45and+6, SP) for Nantes // Neymar (47and) For Paris

We will probably never know the words that Antoine Kombouaré spoke at 8:45 p.m. this Saturday evening, nor what the FC Nantes players ingested during the snack, for them to sign such a performance this evening. Four days after hitting Real Madrid in C1, PSG – in its almost standard team – fell heavily in Nantes (3-1), conceding 45 minutes of heavy metal football yellow and green in the first period and breaking his teeth on the 5-3-2 of the Kanak technician and the big paws of Alban Lafont. After Rennes in October, Brittany is definitely not a land that succeeds in leading the championship this season.

King Merlin

In the middle of an immense pyrotechnic cloud, Juan Bernat took less than three minutes to heat up Alban Lafont (3and) in a corridor that the neo-piston Osman Bukari is taking time to tame. The smoke has not yet dissipated when the Canaries, on a model of lightning counter-attack on the left side between Moses Simon and Randal Kolo Muani, do not start Beaujoire through the latter. (1-0, 4and). Leo Messi eats the hello from Nicolas Pallois (7and), then Lafont (8and): Nantes is in a trance, pushes back the invader and squirts with each recovery, Andrei Girotto even shooting Keylor Navas from afar (12and). In the aftermath, the boiling Ludovic Blas strikes and after a two-step action, Quentin Merlin draws a masterpiece for his first pro goal (2-0, 16and).

The VAR turn

The pace is unbearable, Neymar sends Mbappé in turn to stumble on the Nantes goalkeeper and on the counter, Simon drops Maquinhos so that Kolo Muani misses the double (20and). Panic is gradually spreading to the people of Nantes, but Lafont continues his recital (26and and 28and) then Navas imitated him in front of an untenable Simon (29and) and thanks his lucky star that Blas’ attempt escapes the frame (36and). After a quarter of an hour of Parisian humming, Denis Appiah stops a Mbappé in orbit and does not go far from red (44and). From one VAR moment to another, Mikaël Lesage indicates the penalty spot for a hand from Georginio Wijnaldum and Blas wins his lying poker with the Parisian goalkeeper (3-0, 45and+6).

While the locals are still dreaming of their exploits leaving the locker room, the Ney takes responsibility, dances in the six meters and revives Paname (3-1, 47and). Mbappé wants to put the second slap in vain (54and) and Bernat saves his camp (57and). Furious, Kyky escapes again and forces Appiah to make a mistake in the box… But Neymar, in an unreal way, completely fails his attempt (59and). Paris is getting impatient, KM7 devours the spaces and Girotto intervenes as a firefighter in front of Messi (70and). But Mbappé gives himself so much that when we give him a ready-made goal, he sends a drop (73and). In the last ten minutes, with a line of four Parisians in front, Lafont had to work for the umpteenth time by lying down in front of Julian Draxler (84and) or by aborting a direct counter attempt by Ángel Di María (87and). There will be no second reduction of the gap, let alone an equalizer, and Mbappé will return angry. From there to say that Real Madrid has the instructions to thwart this PSG …
