FC Nates is hosting Paris Saint-Germain at Stade de la Beaujoire in round 9 in the French Ligue 1.
After 5 games in a row without a win, Nantes has finally won the Ligue 1 games last weekend against Brest at home. Nantes has had only 39% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 70% of the correct passes. Nantes was defending really well in this game, and they were able to score 3 goals despite the low possession. Nantes has won this match 3-0. In the Ligue 1 standings, Nantes is now in 15th place with 8 points, 9 scored goals, and 10 conceded goals in 7 games. Louza and Blas are the leading goalscorers for Nantes with 2 goals each. Appiah and Coco have each added 2 assists, while Simon has 1 assist. Limbombe, Coulibaly, Fabio, Augustin, and Chirivella are all injured, and they will miss this game for Nantes. Offensively, Nantes is doing well so far this season, but their defense hasn’t been good, and they have conceded at least 1 goal in 6 of their 7 games. Last season was solid for Nantes, but this one might not be so good if they don’t fix their defense.
PSG has won 6 straight games in Ligue 1, and with that, PSG has taken over the top of the Ligue 1. PSG has 18 points, 20 scored goals, and only 3 conceded goals in 8 games so far. Earlier this week PSG was playing against Basaksehir on the road, and they were the better team in that game. PSG has won that match 0-2, even though the score could have been a lot higher in favor of PSG. In their last Ligue 1 match, PSG was hosting Dijon, and they have had 55% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and high 91% of the correct passes. PSG has scored 2 goals in the first half and 2 more goals in the second half. PSG has won that match 4-0. Mbappe has scored 6 goals for PSG, while Kean, Icardi, Neymar, Florenzi, and Draxler have each added 2 goals. Sarabi has added 4 assists, while Neymar and Mbappe added 3 assists. Neymar and Kurzawa are both still suspended because of the red card, while Bernat, Verratti, Icardi, Paredes, Letellier, and Draxler are all injured. The latest injury in PSG happened against Basaksehir in the Champions League, and Neymar had to leave the game early. He will need to pause the next couple of weeks. PSG is looking good on both ends, and even though it takes them a while to score a goal sometimes, PSG always gets the job done in the Ligue 1.
Nantes hasn’t had a lot of success against PSG at home, and with the game, they are playing, I don’t think they will be successful here as well. Despite PSG playing in the Champions League, and all the injuries, they are the better team here, and for as long as PSG is winning in Ligue 1, I will back them.
