Let’s have a look at the Nantes vs Paris Saint-Germain player ratings of another Ligue 1 match played at Louis Fonteneau Stadium. 

Nantes played against Paris Saint-Germain for a new Ligue 1 match at Louis Fonteneau with the hope of possibly getting a decent result. The French champions were fresh out of Neymar’s injury in recent days but they still had Kylian Mbappe to take on this challenge. PSG lined the youngster next to Moise Kean, who has been important for the French giants in recent weeks as well. But the main man of this match was young Mbappe, who reached a new milestone with tonight’s performance.

For starters, he was absolutely unplayable during the first half but he wasn’t sharp on the finish. During the second half, his creativity and dominance became inevitable again with another goal and another assist. Since he came to PSG, Mbappe has been involved in a total 147 goals in 131 played matches. He assisted Ander Herrera for PSG’s first goal at the start of the second half. 

Mbappe limps off the pitch. 

Kylian was looking for his goal throughout the second half and he finally got it with 15 minutes left on the clock. He got taken down inside the box and scored the penalty that gave PSG a 0-2 win against Nantes. But there was a problem, he immediately left the pitch after taking his penalty with evident muscle pains on his right thigh.

A worrisome problem for the Parisian squad ahead of next week’s Champions League match against RB Leipzig. Tuchel’s squad could potentially not have either him or Neymar for this match. The final result was 0-3 after Pablo Sarabia scored the third, but all PSG supporters are worried about Mbappe’s injury.
