Highlights: Nantes 3-2 PSG

By on 17th April 2019

Paris St-Germain missed out on the chance to win the 2018-19 French Ligue 1 title for a third successive game as they went down 3-2 at Nantes on Wednesday night.

Thomas Tuchel’s side had previously drawn 2-2 with Strasbourg and lost 5-1 at Lille in their previous two outings when they had the opportunity to seal the title.

The Parisians struck first at the Stade de la Beaujoire through Dani Alves’ stunning long-range strike in the 19th minute. But Diego Carlos struck twice for the hosts, either side of Majeed Waris’ goal to give Nantes a surprise 3-1 lead. Metehan Guclu netted a late consolation goal for the visitors.

Kalifa Coulibaly could even have scored a fourth for Nantes but missed an open goal with Gianluigi Buffon stranded well outside of his penalty area.

PSG remain 17 points clear of second-placed Lille with six games remaining and will next have the opportunity to win their sixth title in seven seasons when they face AS Monaco on Sunday.

They can also win the double when they face Rennes in the Coupe de France final on 27 April.
