PSG loses opportunity to move to top spot after shocking defeat to Nantes

PSG miss out on the top spot after defeat a 2-1 defeat to Nantes on Sunday, 15 March 2021. Lille still maintains their spot on top of Ligue 1 despite drawing 0-0 to Monaco. 

The reigning champions had the chance to take first place from Lille on goal difference but strikes from Randal Kolo and Moses Simon wiped out PSG’s half-time lead, which came through Julian Draxler and inflicted a fourth home defeat this campaign on the capital club.

Lille stay top and gain a point on PSG, taking their lead to three on both them and Lyon, who could only draw at Reims on Friday.

Nantes move out of the automatic relegation places with just their fifth win of a troubled season, a point from safety.

PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino made five changes from the team that got past Barcelona and into the Champions League quarter-finals midweek, and his side could easily have been ahead early on.

Here is how the Ligue 1 table looks like:
