December 10, (THEWILL) – Paris Saint-Germain emerged victorious with a 2-1 win over Nantes at the iconic Parc des Princes stadium in Saturday’s fixture. The victory solidifies PSG’s position at the top of the league table, while Nantes put up a valiant fight but ultimately fell short.
PSG began by putting immediate pressure on Nantes’ defense from the start. The home team’s relentless efforts paid off in the 41st minute when Bradley Barcola found the back of the net, giving for a well-deserved lead.
In the second half, Nantes came out with renewed drive, determined to level the score. Their efforts were rewarded in the 55th minute when Mostafa Mohamed drew Nantes level. The game intensified as both teams fought for the telling goal in search of maximum points.
As the clock wound down, PSG showcased their championship pedigree and sealed the victory. With just seven minutes left, Randal Kolo Muani, in for Barcola, unleashed a powerful strike from outside the box, leaving Nantes’ goalkeeper with no chance to save it. Having scored against his former club, he refrained from celebrating.
PSG’s victory further solidifies their determination to defend their title while Nantes can take pride in their spirited performance against the league champions.
