PSG vs. Nantes result: Galtier wins Trophee des Champions on debut with Messi, Neymar on strike

PSG vs. Nantes result: PSG, the defending Ligue 1 champions, easily defeat Coupe de France champion Nantes in Tel Aviv, Israel’s Trophee des Champions, even without Kylian Mbappe.

Due to his yellow card accumulation from the previous season, Mbappe was suspended for PSG’s season opener. Nevertheless, the Parisians seemed energized under new manager Christophe Galtier for his competitive debut.

Neymar’s goals came from dead-ball opportunities, and he also assisted Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos in scoring. Despite several early warning shots from talisman Ludovic Bias, Nantes was ultimate without any teeth throughout the game.

It’s a promising beginning for the Galtier era at PSG, which aspires to use a new coach and a clear health status to compete in the European arena. Galtier won’t be considered a success at the club unless he achieves domestic success, but it’s a terrific start for the new manager with the upcoming season clearly in mind.

Live updates, highlights, and discussion for PSG vs. Nantes

FINAL: PSG 4-0 Nantes

Simon’s shot was the game’s final kick, and PSG won the Trophy of Champions! A vital 90 minutes in Galtier’s debut, highlighted by two goals from Neymar. With practically a full-strength team far ahead of their opponents on the day, it’s a good start for the new boss.

90+3: Just before the end of regulation, Donnarumma makes an outstanding save by diving to his left to stop Moses Simon’s desperate attempt.

Moment 85: PSG has a chance! Now that the thrashing is complete, PSG is playing about with Nantes. The reigning league champions easily break, and Messi is allowed to pass by himself. He attempts the skillful chip, but Lafont stops him by leaping high and tipping the ball straight into the air.

80th minute: PSG penalty! Nantes is dismissed! Jean-Charles Castelletto is dismissed for pulling Neymar down just before the penalty kick! The Brazilian was alone when Paredes threaded him through from the right flank. There are no options for the referee; it is a solid red.

Neymar takes the shot and scores! The score is now 4-0 in favor of PSG. The penalty isn’t fantastic, but as it glides towards the goal, Lafont, who is planted in the middle, is caught off guard.

Juan Bernat, who came in during the water break, attempts a shot from a narrow-angle to the right, but it is blocked by the side netting. Neymar skillfully went by a midfielder for Nantes and rushed into the top of the area to set up the opportunity.

Leandro Paredes and Nordi Mukiele are now active for PSG instead of Veratti and Hakimi. For PSG, everything is almost finished.

71st minute: PSG’s increased midfield domination has taken the edge off this game. Over the past 10 minutes, Nantes has had minimal opportunities to get the ball, and the action has now been stopped for a water break.

After PSG’s third, Nantes has attempted to advance a few times, but to no avail. Marcus Coco is replaced by striker Mostafa Mohamed in Antoine Kombouare’s double substitution, which indicates a change to four defenders. Additionally, Samuel Moutousammy replaces Pedro Chirivella.

57th minute: PSG scores! WTF was Sergio Ramos’ goal? A heel in the back! Verratti delivers a prop to Sarabia at the left post, and Ramos receives it at his door. Ramos backheels the ball off Nicolas Pallois’ hip and into the goal after Lafont gets a fingertip and forces Ramos to turn around to recover it.

lineups for Nantes vs. PSG

In the most recent friendly against the Japanese team, Gamba Osaka, Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe all scored goals, and two of them will be prepared to captain the front line in the opening match of the season.

Due to accumulating ten yellow cards in his penultimate league game of the previous season, Mbappe is sadly sidelined for PSG tonight. Pablo Sarabia, a forward from Spain, will take over up front instead of Mauro Icardi.

Vitinha, a 22-year-old midfielder who recently joined PSG, beats out Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti because of his extensive preseason playing time. Despite his mistakes last season, Gianluigi Donnarumma is in goal and is expected to start. Keylor Navas will once more sit on the bench.
