PSG is welcoming FC Nantes to Stade des Princes in round 14 of the French Ligue 1. PSG is at the top of the table, they are playing great in the attacking end, and they are also doing a solid job in the Champions League. Nantes is not bad, they are scoring a decent number of goals, but their defense needs work.

As I’ve mentioned, PSG is at the top of the table in France with 34 points, which is 10 points more than Lens in second place. With 29 scored goals, PSG is also the best offensive team in the league, while their defense isn’t bad, but it could be better. PSG has conceded 13 goals. In their last game, PSG was playing against Bordeaux on the road, and they were the better team with 56% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 85% of the correct passes. With an excellent game from Mbappe and Neymar, PSG has scored 3 goals by the 63rd minute, but they still ended up conceding 2 goals y the end of this game. Luckily for PSG, it was too late for Bordeaux to score another, and PSG has won this game 2-3. In the Champions League, PSG is in 2nd place now, and they are playing against Manchester City next week, but whatever happens in that game, I don’t think there will be serious repercussions for PSG. The injury list has been updated, and the only players who will miss this game are Draxler and Rafinha. PSG is doing a great job in Ligue 1, but now it’s time to shift focus to the Champions League which is their real goal.

Nantes has had some great results this season, which is why they are so far away from the relegation zone, and I think they have enough quality to play this way for a bigger part of the season. in their last 5 games, Nantes has lost only 1 game, they have 2 draws and 2 wins, and they were even able to keep one clean sheet. In their latest game against Strasbourg at home, Nantes has had 48% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. Nantes was leading 2-1 in the 48th minute, and when Strasbourg conceded a red card in the 51st minute, it seemed that Nantes will get all 3 points, but they managed to concede a goal in the 68th minute, and the final score was 2-2. Blas has scored 6 goals for Nantes so far this season. There are a few injuries and suspensions in Nantes, and that will have an impact on their game.

PSG is still perfect at home this season, they haven’t lost in their last 6 games, and they are on a 10-game winning streak at home. PSG is a much better team here, they will get Messi back, who should finally score a goal in Ligue 1, but even if he doesn’t, PSG will get a win here.
