Final: PSG 3, Nantes 1

87th minute: Messi scores! He got his first goal for PSG. Mbappe passed him from the right and Messi dribbled the ball in defense and shot Lafont in the net. Spectacular ending. This game is over.

81st minute: PSG find the goal! It was an own goal from Messi’s shot that was deflected by Dennis Appiah in front of his keeper.

76th minute.: Goal Nantes! Kolo Muani headed home and PSG goalkeeper Sergio Rico made an early save, and then Muani kept up with a side heel and Rico couldn’t stop. We are close to finishing some spots in Parc des Princes.

74th minute: SUB – Gini Wijnaldum comes on for Marco Verratti, who sits on the yellow jersey. 10 people PSG need someone who can cover.

70th minute: Reflex saved by Sergio Rico! The ball went off the post of PSG teammates, Diallo and Rico had to successfully block. What was once a comfortable match for PSG will now be the final 20-minute battle.

68th minute: SUB – PSG’s backup goalkeeper Sergio Rico came on and Neymar was the player who died.

65th minute: Red card! Everything is so exciting in Paris. Keylor Navas was sent off the box and knocked out Ludovic Blas. It was a questionable decision by Navas, who chose to play risky.

58th minute: SUBS – Nantes will do this one run. Osman Bukari and Quentin Merlin replace Fabio and Coulibaly. Upcoming roster changes.

54th minute.: Nantes nearly equalized with two chances. PSG has no more springboard. On the first, a cross went wide of Coulibaly’s goal, and then Coulibaly’s shot was saved by defender Thilo Kehrer on the second.

46th minute: The second half is underway.

Half 1: PSG 1, Nantes 0

Half time: Nantes’ 22-year-old goalkeeper Alban Lafont is the only reason why the visitors are still in this match. The attacking trident Neymar-Mbappe-Messi is moving and combining well, and Nantes simply cannot stay with them. On the other side, PSG have easily handled everything Nantes throws in his way and the Canaries have only two shots so far. This seems to be the best scenario for Messi to finally get his first Ligue 1 goal in the second half. But with a Champions League tie in midweek, manager Mauricio Pochettino may decide to give his stars a break if they can get the game out of reach.

42nd minute: SUB – Dennis Appiah comes on for Nantes for the injured Sebastien Corchia.

38th minute: No mercy from PSG, and Lafont had to make another save to Messi. And after the game went round, there were protests about a penalty for Neymar. Good no call of the referee.

30th minute: Minute 30, PSG fans celebrate their 30th birthday:

29th minute: And now it’s Neymar’s turn to be rejected by Lafont. PSG are dominating. And it always goes down the left channel. It’s a copy of Messi’s chance earlier. Nantes looked scared.

22nd minute: The PSG forward trio were clicking and it was another Lafont save. This time it was Messi who found Mbappe in the box. Good moves of the star players.

20th minute: Before taking the next corner, Mbappe must be taken care of. He gets a stomp in the play and one of his pads comes off. He had to change his shoes on the sidelines.

18th minute: What an opportunity for Messi! Neymar found him in the box, but Messi’s shot was saved by Nantes goalkeeper Alban Lafont. It’s basically one-on-one. Messi is still looking for his first Ligue 1 goal.

16th minute: Nantes’ first real threat with a Marcus Coco shot from outside the box flew high over goal. The away team has not really threatened PSG’s makeshift backline.

10th minute: PSG are targeting the attacking left wing (Nante’s right). That’s also where Neymar started scoring.

8th minute: We finally get to see a replay of the goal on the match broadcast and Lionel Messi is offside, not Mbappe. The French player’s seventh goal of the year was a goal.

Second minute: The target is PSG! A long shot from Leandro Paredes was saved by Mbappe on the way to goal. At first it looked like Mbappe was offside, but the goal stood.

First minute: We go. We’ll see how the internationals look after the break.
