Nantes 3-2 PSG: Runaway Ligue 1 leaders lose third chance to win title when Dani Alves scores an own goal and a 25-yard rocket

  • PSG needs another win to close the fifth championship in the last six seasons
  • Full-back Alves puts the visitors ahead with a beautiful attack in the upper corner
  • Diego Carlos right for hosts for Majeed Waris and an own goal from Alves
  • Metehan Guclu reduced the arrears a minute of full-time for the visitors

Paris St Germain missed another chance to close their eighth Ligue 1 title when their strongly changing side was beaten 3-2 by Nantes on Wednesday.

Victory would have put PSG outside the standings with six remaining PSO games out of reach, but the opening of Dani Alves was canceled by Diego Carlos for Majeed Waris and Alves' own goal gave the Canary Islands all three points on La Beaujoire.

PSG's Metehan Guclu reduced the late payments per minute from full-time in its first appearance in Ligue 1.

It was an embarrassing performance from runaway PSG leaders, who have 81 points from 32 games and lead the second-placed Lille with 17 points.

The side of Thomas Tuchel, who has now only collected one point from their last three away games in League 1, will be crowned champions on Sunday when they beat Monaco at home.

PSG was without the injured Neymar, Edinson Cavani, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Thomas Meunier, a situation that led the German coach to complain about the lack of depth of his team last weekend.

Marco Verratti and Juan Bernat were suspended while Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria rested before Sunday's league game against Monaco and the final of the French final of April 27 against Stade Rennes.

Their firepower was seriously missed because Eric Choupo-Moting was hardly threatened, except when he hit the post in the second half.

However, Alves opened the score after 19 minutes with a beautiful long-distance attack after collecting a pass from Leandro Paredes.

Yet Carlos went home four minutes later, when PSG, who had a humiliation of 5-1 last Sunday at Lille, looked shaky.

Waris set up the hosts a minute before the interval when he broke a teammate's shot past Gianluigi Buffon.

Nantes doubled their lead six minutes in the second half when Carlos's attempt was a corner for Alves.

Guclu, 20, celebrated his first appearance of the top flight by finding the net with a fine low shot from the box.

The result increased Nantes to 14th at 37 points, 12 above the relegation zone.
