League runaway leaders PSG will host Nantes on Saturday in a game of round 19 in the French League 1. Undefeated so far in the league, the Parisians will most probably add another easy 3 points to their account in the weekend. Trio “MEN” (Mbappe-Edinson Cavani-Neymar) will not be able to line up as brazilian wizard Neymar will miss the game through injury.

Paris SG vs Nantes Stats
Being at the top of the table, ten points ahead of the second placed team and with 2 games in hand it means one thing only – PSG will be crowned champions of France for 7th time in a row, come the end of the season. In their last 10 games the Parisians recorded 7 wins, and 3 draws. The defence have been something of a worry lately as they have conceded in all of the last 5 games. Unsurprisingly, all of the last 5 games saw both teams scoring, while on 4 occasions more than 2,5 goals were scored. Kylian Mbappe is still 19, but is one of the most exciting talents to watch and he’s been his team leading goalscorer with 12 goals in the League. There have been reports in the media this week of a rift between coach Thomas Tuchel and young midfielder Rabiot over playing time, and that the player has made up his mind about leaving on a free transfer in the summer.
Nantes are currently sitting 16th in the standings, 4 points clear of the relegation zone. They were on a nice run of 6 games undefeated earlier in the season but eventually lost to St Ettiene and are now on two successive losses, when playing away from home. Four of their last five games across all competitons have seen both teams scoring. Nicolas Pepe has been shining bright this season and is the surprise leader in the scoring charts with 12 strikes.
