Ligue 1: Messi assists Mbappe twice in PSG win at Nantes

Kylian Mbappe scored twice from Lionel Messi passes as Paris St-Germain saw off ten-man Nantes in Ligue 1.

Mbappe curled a delightful opener into the top corner from a Messi ball to cap a swift break.

The hosts had Fabio sent off after just 24 minutes for a tackle on Vitinha.

Mbappe then scored from six yards from a Messi pass across the box, a goal given by VAR after being ruled out for offside initially, before Nuno Mendes hammered in a third.

Ten of Mbappe’s 26 league goals in 2022 have been set up by Messi – the most of any duo in Europe’s top five leagues.

Defending champions PSG are top of Ligue 1 with five wins and a draw from six games.
