PSG defeated Nantes, Messi with debut goal in Ligue 1

PSG defeated Nantes, Messi with debut goal in Ligue 1

Paris Saint-Germain beat Nantes 3-1 in a match that will be remembered with the red card of Keylor Navas in the 65th minute and Lionel Messi's debut goal in Ligue 1. 

Parisians started the match better, as Killian Mbape gave an advance to Pochettino's team in the second minute. 

After the early goal, PSG completely controlled what was happening on the field, but failed to score a second goal until the end of the first half. First in the 18th minute Lionel Messi had time and space to shoot, but Alban Lafon showed a reflex and took a corner. In the 30th minute, Neymar was rejected by Lafon. The good performances of the goalkeeper of Nantes continued - in the 38th minute Messi directed the ball to the bottom right corner, and the guard of the guests was again at the height. 

In the 65th minute, PSG guard Keylor Navas was sent off with a direct red card and had to be replaced by Sergio Rico, as Gianluigi Donaruma was not included in the group due to illness.

In the 77th minute Randall Muani equalized the result of "Parc des Princes". The hit was reviewed with VAR and eventually confirmed.

The joy of the guests was not long, however, as in the 81st minute Denis Apia scored an own goal. 

Three minutes before the end of regular time, what many PSG fans expected from the beginning of the season happened - Killian Mbape found Lionel Messi, who opened his goal in the Ligue 1 from the edge of the penalty area. 

Paris Saint-Germain is the leader in the standings in France with 37 points, and Nantes is 11th with 18.
