Three days later, the Champions League will be played. So maybe the PSG coach made four changes to the starting eleven, including Neymar. However, they did not have to think about winning with the skills of Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi. Christophe Galtier’s team maintained the winning streak by easily defeating Nant.

Last season’s champions won League One 3-0 at home on Sunday night. Mbappe scored a double with Messi’s assist. The other is Nuno Mendes.

PSG’s recent performance against the team has not been good. They had lost two of their previous three encounters. PSG lost 3-1 at this ground in their second league appearance last season. Neymar was beaten 2-1 at their home ground in the previous season.

Most of the time, with one less, the hosts could not create any chance of incident.

Mbappe gave the team the lead in the 18th minute with a great counter-attack. Messi found his teammate on the left in the D-box with the ball far ahead of his own boundary. The French forward took control of the ball in space and fired a high angled shot past the far post.

Six minutes later, Nant took a bigger hit. Brazilian defender Fabio was shown a straight red card for a dangerous foul on opposition midfielder Vitinia.

Despite falling behind in a short period of time and losing an important player, Nant did not let the disappointment sit down. Sometimes they start counter-attacking instead. On the contrary, PSGE seems to be a little slack.

Mbappe doubled the gap in the eighth minute of the second half. Catching a teammate’s through pass, he entered the D-box and passed to Messi on the right. The Argentine star could not take a shot due to the opponent’s obstruction. He gave a return pass in the six yard box. The World Cup winning star pushed the ball into the net with an effective tap.

Mbappe scored 7 goals in the tournament, sitting next to Neymar in the fight for the Golden Boot.

Mbappe could have had a hat-trick in the 62nd minute. He took a pass from Pablo Sarabia and shot past the goalkeeper; But at the last moment Nicola Paloa stopped. After that, Mbappe was picked up by the coach, and Neymar entered the field.

Neymar could have scored shortly after being substituted. But his shot was blocked by the post. Young defender Mendes widened the gap with a strong shot after receiving the return ball in the gap.

In the 83rd minute, Messi could not take advantage of an easy opportunity. He couldn’t take a strong enough shot despite getting the goalkeeper alone in front, the stooped goalkeeper did not allow the gap to increase in any way.

PSG is at the top with 16 points from six matches and five wins and one draw. Marseille at two with equal points.

The next challenge is the stage of Europe’s best. PSG will face Juventus at home on the opening day of the new season of the Champions League.
