Premier League

Vitinha, the only hiccup of the evening

Paris Saint-Germain, co-captain of the Ligue 1 standings before the start of the sixth day, traveled to Nantes with a double goal. The first: regaining the lead in the championship after Olympique de Marseille won Auxerre. Two: repeating his ranges for the last time with a slightly overhauled workforce ahead of the big Champions League return against Juventus on Tuesday night at the Parc des Princes.

On paper, Lionel Messi’s partners accomplished their mission by opening the scoring in the 18th minute thanks to a Kylian Mbappe rocket in the top corner from Alban Lafont. Six minutes later, the Canaries were dealt a second blow by sending off their team Fabio. At ten versus eleven, Nantes’ mission promised to be more difficult. Except that, in this work, the Brazilian Viténia was seriously injured, forced to take a step and was replaced by Renato Sanchez (33rd place).

Can be replaced by Paris

A blow to Christopher Galtaire. Barely reaching the capital from Porto, the Portuguese immediately established himself in the heart of the midfield alongside Marco Verratti. With his ability to break lines, like his Italian teammate, Vitinha could miss out on the shock against the old lady. An impostor, especially since his appointed replacement since the start of the season, fellow countryman Sanchez, is far from sharp. Recruited late, the ex-Bavarian clearly lacks rhythm, even if he looked more relaxed during the second-half minutes (3-0 win for the Parisians).

When asked by the media about the foal, Christophe Galtier remains unconfirmed. “He took a big blow to his patella. There is no risk of sprains or ligaments. We’ll see if there’s a hematoma. Are you there for Juventus? We’ll make sure he gets him back, we’ll see his feelings, or else we’ll do it with someone else.”said into a microphone Channel +, without being more gossipy at a press conference. So Paris is holding its breath. Note that the Portuguese left Beaujoire limp, but without crutches.
