About the match
FC Nantes is going head to head with Paris Saint-Germain starting on 19 Feb 2022 at 20:00 UTC at Stade de la Beaujoire stadium, Nantes city, France. The match is a part of the Ligue 1.
On a real high from their Champions League victory against Real Madrid, Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to build momentum by claiming maximum points against Nantes on Saturday.
The Canaries, meanwhile, are also in good form and could move into the top five if they were to secure their fifth successive home win.
Kylian Mbappe stole the headlines on Tuesday night after his silky solo goal in stoppage time helped PSG secure a narrow 1-0 win over 13-time European champions Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie in Paris.
Earlier in the contest, Lionel Messi had a penalty saved by Thibaut Courtois, but it was Los Blancos transfer target Mbappe who spared the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner his blushes, with his moment of magic providing the Parisian outfit with a slender advantage to take to the Santiago Bernabeu next month.
Mauricio Pochettino‘s side now have two Ligue 1 fixtures to focus on before the second leg with Real Madrid, starting with Saturday’s encounter against European hopefuls Nantes.
PSG are unbeaten in each of their last 15 league games, but three of their last four away fixtures have ended as 1-1 draws against Lens, Lorient and Lyon.
The current Ligue 1 leaders, who are 13 points clear of their nearest challengers Marseille in second, secured a 3-1 victory against Nantes in the reverse fixture, and they will be full of confidence heading to the Stade de la Beaujoire as they seek their fifth successive top-flight win.
