PSG and Marseille go hand in hand: the Parisians win and lead Ligue 1 with Alexis Sánchez’s team

The Parisian side beat Nantes 3-0, with a brace from Kylian Mbappé, ahead of their Champions League debut against Juventus. They lead the standings with 16 points, just like the Marseille club.

The Saturday day of the sixth date of Ligue 1 ended with 3-0 victory for Paris Saint-Germain over Nantes, as a visitor, to stay at the top of French football, with Olympique de Marseille.

The powerful Parisian framework is however hard hit. Three days before facing Juventus, at the start of the Champions League group stage, they lost Vitinha to a possible knee injury. The midfielder, one of the new faces of the team for the 22-23 season, left the field in the 33rd minute, after an infringement by Fabio, who ended up being sent off.

The scoreboard tilted in favor of PSG from the 18th minute, with the opening of Kylian Mbappé’s account, after a pass from Lionel Messi . The Argentine star also contributed to a new goal for the world champion. The conversion was originally invalidated at 54′, but was considered valid after consultation in the video arbitration.

Nuno Mendes completed the score with 3-0 in the 67th minute, on a rebound after a shot from Brazilian Neymar, which shook a post.

Technician Christophe Galtier took the liberty of measuring out a few loads, thinking about the tight schedule. Against Nantes, Sergio Ramos, Nuno Mendes, Renato Sanches and Neymar started on the bench. Spaniard Carlos Soler, one of the latest born, has also been called up, as the major league transfer market approaches.

PSG are the league leaders with 16 points from six games, the product of five wins and one draw. These are the same figures for Marseille, who beat Auxerre 2-0 this Saturday, thanks to a goal from Alexis Sánchez. The nuance between the pointers lies in the goal difference. The Parisians have +20 (24 for and 4 against), against +10 for OM (13 scored and 3 received). This Sunday, Lens can overtake them in the lead, if they beat Stade de Reims away from home.
