Mbappe Inspires PSG to Victory Over Nantes Amid Departure Talks

Kylian Mbappe’s impact off the bench propels PSG to a 2-0 win against Nantes as speculation mounts over his future. Get the latest on Mbappe’s departure plans and PSG’s continued dominance in Ligue 1.

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) continued their dominant run in Ligue 1 with a 2-0 victory over Nantes, extending their lead at the top of the table to a commanding 14 points. The match saw Kylian Mbappe, who recently expressed his intention to leave the club at the end of the season, making a significant impact as a substitute.

Lucas Hernandez opened the scoring with a deflected strike in the 60th minute, breaking the deadlock for PSG. However, it was Mbappe’s entrance from the bench that truly sealed the win for the Parisian side. The French superstar was fouled inside the penalty area and confidently converted the subsequent penalty, marking his 21st league goal of the season in just 20 games.

Despite Nantes posing some threats in the first half, PSG’s defensive resilience, including notable interventions from Gianluigi Donnarumma and Marquinhos, kept them at bay. Nicolas Pallois had a goal disallowed for offside, and Donnarumma made a crucial save to deny Nantes from equalizing.
