Commentary

That is all for tonight's coverage. Thanks for joining us, goodbye!
Nantes move out of the relegation zone with this victory, while PSG have work to do at the top of the table. Pochettino's side face Lille in the Coupe de France next time out, while Nantes take on Lorient in the league next weekend.
PSG's players will be reeling after that second-half display, and they seemed to be a lot of unrest after the subs. Di Maria's withdrawal caused a stir, with Pochettino going into the dressing room to see the winger after he was brought off. The change only seemed to be made after a direction from a PSG official. 
An incredible second-half fightback earns Nantes all three points and gives their hopes of survival a real shot in the arm. PSG looked to have this game sewn up at the interval, with Lafont keeping Nantes in the contest. Draxler's goal had given the home side the lead, but the game was turned on its head when Muani pounced on Mbappe's poor pass. PSG let their heads drop then, and Nantes gave everything for the cause, eventually getting their winner with 19 minutes remaining. Muani and Simon punished PSG on the counter-attack, with the latter side-footing home past Navas. PSG tried to find a way back into the game, but Pochettino's subs made no impact, and they remain three points behind league-leaders Lille.
90' + 7' FULL-TIME - PSG 1-2 NANTES.
90' + 6' Into the final minute of stoppage time, Lafont has yet to do anything since the fourth official's board went up.
90' + 5' PSG's players are going to ground easily in an attempt to win a cheap free-kick. So far it has yet to work!
90' + 3' PSG are struggling to find space in the Nantes half, and they are showing signs of nerves!
90' SEVEN minutes of stoppage time! Yes, SEVEN!!
88' Before kick-off, PSG had won each of their last 12 home games against Nantes in Ligue 1, only experiencing a longer winning run at home against Bastia. It looks like that record is now going to be broken!
87' The game is back underway!
85' Traore goes down to receive treatment, and he is in some discomfort! Kehrer has caught him with his studs after crossing the ball into the box. His boot has raked Traore's shin and it looks a painful challenge.
R. Emond
R. Muani
84' Antoine is trying to protect the lead as he brings off Muani, with Emond on for the final few minutes.
I. Louza
L. Blas
84' Another change for Nantes as Bias makes way for Louza.
K. Bamba
M. Simon
83' Goalscorer Simon is also on his way back to the stands as Bamba gets five minutes to impress.
81' SAVE!!! Lafont has kept Nantes in this game, and he keeps them in the lead as he gets down to deny Paredes. The sub tried his luck from the edge of the box, but he couldn't find a way past the Nantes stopper.
79' Nantes are sitting deep and trying to absorb the pressure, but they were having more success when driving forward at the PSG defence.
76' Nantes need to prepare themselves for 20 minutes of defending. PSG are going to throw the kitchen sink at them as they try to keep pace with Lille at the top of the table.
Pablo Sarabia
J. Draxler
74' Draxler's night is also over as Sarabia comes on for the final 16 minutes.
T. Kehrer
C. Dagba
74' Despite a strong performance, Dagba is replaced by Kehrer.
R. Muani
Assist
71' Great vision from Muani, as he could have easily gone for goal. He decided to put his team first though, and Simon was on hand to tap home.
M. Simon
Goal
71' GOAAAALLLLLLLL - PSG 1-2 NANTES!!! Simon fires Nantes into an unlikely lead as Nantes score against the run of play. Incredible scenes at the Parc des Princes as the visitors launch a counter-attack and catch PSG sleeping at the back. A long ball caused problems, and Muani raced through on goal before teeing up Simon, who could not miss from inside the box.
68' Coco stayed down, and the game comes to a halt as he receives treatment.
M. Verratti
Yellow Card
67' Verratti is the latest player to receive a yellow card after a clumsy challenge on Nantes midfielder Coco.
65' Mbappe will be desperate to make amends for his error before full-time, but Nantes are playing with renewed confidence now.
L. Paredes
Á. Di María
62' Pochettino now brings off Di Maria, with Paredes on in his place.
61' What a nightmare for Mbappe! The striker dropped deep to help out his team-mates and ended up costing them a goal. Shocking moment for the PSG striker! 
R. Muani
Goal
59' GOAAAALLLLL - PSG 1-1 NANTES - Out of nowhere, the visitors are level!!! Mbappe gifted Nantes possession, with his misplaced pass, picked up by Muani. The Nantes striker then moved onto his right foot and fired past Navas to level proceedings.
58' Icardi's introduction means he will now lead the line for PSG, and it should mean Di Maria drops into the middle, with Draxler and Mbappe playing either side of the former Real Madrid man.
M. Icardi
Rafinha
56' As expected, Rafinha's night is over early, with Icardi coming on in his place.
55' Icardi looks like he is coming on after stepping onto the touchline alongside Pochettino.
53' Rafinha is a very lucky boy as he avoids a second yellow card, despite replays suggesting he should be off the field. The PSG man caught Toure late after standing on his foot, and Pochettino may need to bring him off to make sure he still has 11 men.
C. Traoré
Yellow Card
50' Another yellow card is shown as Traore brings down Dagba on the touchline.
Rafinha
Yellow Card
48' PSG midfielder Rafinha is shown a yellow card for a sloppy challenge in midfield.
47' WIDE!! Mbappe nearly doubles PSG's advantage, but he fails to keep his shot on target after finding space in the box. The former Monaco man turned past two Nantes defenders but dragged his right-footed effort past the far post.
46' We are back underway in Paris.
Nantes showed more desire to go and score when they had conceded than at any point in the rest of the first half. Antoine's team have their work cut out if they want to stop PSG from returning to the top of the Ligue 1 table.
Draxler's goal three minutes before the interval gives PSG a deserved lead on home soil. Without Lafont it is scary to think what position Nantes would be in with their keeper making five crucial saves already. Mbappe wasted the best opportunity, but Draxler spared his blushes in the knick of time.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME - PSG 1-0 NANTES.
M. Simon
Yellow Card
45' + 1' Simon is shown a yellow card for that challenge and he can have no complaints.
45' PSG win a free-kick as Simon brings down Di Maria from behind and he is going to need some treatment at the Parc des Princes.
44' Nantes are unbeaten in their last three away games in Ligue 1. They will need to up their game if they are to improve that record!
J. Draxler
Goal
42' GOAAAALLLLL - PSG 1-0 NANTES - Nantes' resistance is broken as Draxler fires the home side into the lead. The German pounced on the edge of the box after Nantes failed to clear the danger, and his curling effort was placed perfectly, as Lafont was unable to stop his shot.
40' Lafont once again denies PSG, and he could be playing himself into man-of-the-match contention already. Rafinha tries to score for a second time, but his deflected shot is tipped over the bar. 
38' SAVE!!! Lafont comes to Nantes' rescue yet again, this time denying Mbappe. The France international raced towards the box before aiming for the middle of the goal, allowing Lafont to stick out his leg and turn the ball away.
36' WIDE!!! Di Maria is inches away from opening the scoring as he tries to curl an effort into the top corner. Nantes keeper Lafont was not getting to the ball, but he was delighted to see the Argentine's shot fly wide.
35' Nantes deal with the danger as Lafont flies off his line to punch the ball clear!
34' PSG win a free-kick in a dangerous position...
32' Toure tries his luck for the second time in as many minutes, but it is the same outcome as he leans back when striking the ball.
30' Nantes register a rare shot towards the PSG goal, and you can tell they are out of practice. Toure found space on the edge of the box, but he failed to keep his composure and could only find the stands.
28' Dagba tests the Nantes defence once again, but his cross is diverted away by Girotto at the last second. The visitors really need to get him under control!
26' Nantes have altered their formation to try and get more joy, with Antoine now playing a 3-4-3 formation. Coco and Traore are being deployed as wingbacks so Nantes can then play five in defence. 
24' WIDE!!! PSG go close to opening the scoring as Di Maria picks out Rafinha at the near post. The midfielder shows tremendous bravery to dive in head first, but his diving header just misses the far post.
20' Nantes appeal for a penalty as Muani is bundled to the floor by Kimpembe, but the referee waves away any complaints, and it remains 0-0.
18' Dagba has made a superb start tonight, he continues to fly down the touchline and cause problems for the Nantes defence.
15' This game is being played at a frantic pace, but it is only suiting the home side at present. Nantes are trying to build from the back, but they are rushing their attacks, and they are playing into PSG's hands.
12' OVER!! PSG come close to opening the scoring for the second time in a minute as Marquinhos heads over from the resulting corner. The defender was unmarked but could only convert the cross onto the roof of the net.
11' CHANCE!! Di Maria brings Lafont into the game as he forces a save out of the Nantes keeper. The winger was able to cut in from the right wing and go for goal, only for Lafont to tip his shot over the bar for a corner. 
9' PSG register the first shot towards goal but Rafinha's left-footed effort sails over Labont's head and the crossbar.
6' PSG win a corner as Dagba is tackled on the goalline, but nothing comes from the set-piece as Nantes immediately clear their lines. 
3' As expected, PSG have made a solid start to this match, and Pochettino's team are dictating play and looking for openings.
1' We are underway in Paris!
The two teams are now out on the field and kick-off is moments away.
PSG have won 17 of their last 18 Ligue 1 meetings with Nantes, with the only defeat coming away from home in April 2019.
Following the 1-1 draw with Barcelona, Pochettino makes five changes for this encounter. Diallo, Dagba, Danilo Pereira, Rafinha and Di Maria replace Florenzi, Kurzawa, Gueye, Paredes and Icardi in the starting XI. Nantes coach Antoine also makes alterations to his side after the 2-1 defeat to Reims, as Corchia and Louza drop out for Pallois and Coco.
SUBS: Quentin Merlin, Abdoul Kader Bamba, Imran Louza, Kalifa Coulibaly, Denis Petric, Batista Mendy, Abdoulaye Sylla, Renaud Emond, Anthony Limbombe.
NANTES (4-4-1-1): Alban Lafont; Nicolas Pallois, Andrei Girotto, Jean-Charles Castelletto, Charles Traore; Moses Simon, Pedro Chirivella, Abdoulaye Toure, Marcus Coco; Ludovic Bias, Randal Kolo Muani.
SUBS: Leandro Paredes, Idrissa Gueye, Mitchel Bakker, Timothee Pembele, Pablo Sarabia, Sergio Rico, Thilo Kehrer, Mauro Icardi, Layvin Kurzawa.
PSG (4-3-3): Keylor Navas; Abdou Diallo, Presnel Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Colin Dagba; Marco Verratti, Danilo Pereira, Rafinha; Angel Di Maria, Kylian Mbappe, Julian Draxler.
While PSG are aiming for another Ligue 1 title, Nantes are desperate for points at the opposite end of the table. They are 19th at present and three points from safety after a run of three games without success.
Mauricio Pochettino's PSG are unbeaten in four ahead of kick-off, thanks to their midweek draw with Barcelona in the Champions League. Confidence should be high in their camp as they booked their place in the quarter-finals of the competition. 
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the Ligue 1 clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Nantes. PSG will be able to reclaim top spot with a victory this evening after Lille played out a goalless draw with Monaco earlier this afternoon.
