PSG's euphoria after the win against Real Madrid was short-lived. The team led by Pochettino has not managed to overcome a Nantes team that has known how to stop the offensive power of the Parisian team
Of the euphoria to the worry. The Paris Saint-Germain keeps on being a team impredecible, for well and for bad. After a conclusive recital in front of the Real Madrid that remained short in the marker (1-0), the Parisian picture has gone back to show his version more 'endeble' and the one who does not tolerate the contragolpes of the rivals. The Nantes was a nightmare, from beginning to end, for the PSG and remained with a key victory to go back to leave 'touched' to the leader.
The main appeal in the previous of the meeting was the return to the titularity of the 'MMN', the trident of luxury of the PSG, that had not coincided in the titularity from the past 28 November, when Neymar Jr fell lesionado. The Brazilian went back to go out of start, leaving to Gave María in the bench, and the Parisian group went back to suffer of a recurrent evil when the three 'cracks' are on the field: they defend with one less.
The Nantes took advantage of and noqueó to the leader very soon. Mbappé Lost a balloon in front of Girotto for a contragolpe carried out to perfection that left to Muani with the balloon to beat to Keylor Navas with a shot crossed in front of the unlucky exit of the costarricense. The PSG reacted almost immediately with a seguidilla of occasions, but crashed against a Lafont that turned into a wall. Leo Messi had a very clear after a good triangulation that finish with the expensive Argentinian to face with the guardameta and an intervention milagrosa to avoid the 1-1.
The surprise arrived to the chamber of hour when the Nantes achieved the 2-0 in a big played of the attackers that finished with a potentísimo finish of Merlin that crossed the goal of Navas. The PSG remained too touched, but presionaba constantly to mark. Mbappé And Neymar had the clearest. 'Donatello' finished and found with Lafont. Shortly after, 'Ney' ran with the same luck. The French did not leave to happen one.
The VAR, leading of the night
The first time in the Stade of the Beaujoire was a complete madness and the VAR finished being protagonist. Mbappé Received a hard fault of Appiah and this saw the red cardboard, but after the review of the referee with the technology remained in a yellow. Without time for the rest, in the discount went back to take part the VAR to signal a penal in favour of the venues by a hand of Wijnaldum inside the area: Blas did not fail in front of Keylor so that the marker went up to 3-0 in the first part.
In the second act, began the madness (as if the first had not been sufficient). In the first played, a genialidad of Leo Messi left to Neymar Jr with the balloon so that it finished with tranquility and beat, finally, to Lafont; tolgo that could not achieve minutes afterwards from the eleven metres. In the 56', Appiah went back to commit a fault on Mbappé (without yellow, although deserved) and signalled the maximum penalty.
Neymar Failed of deafening way in his launching. It finished giving a 'happen' to Lafont with a very toneless and easy shot to detain. The Stade of the Beaujoire came up and the Nantes, that defended with until five players, braked any illusion of the PSG to trace back... Although the occasions did not be missing.
