Nantes predicted XI v PSG: Pedro Chirivella and Moussa Sissoko set to start

FC Nantes host Ligue 1 leaders PSG tonight at Stade de la Beaujoire. It will be the first game for Les Parisiens since Kylian Mbappé’s announcement to his teammates that he will leave Paris at the end of the season.

Nantes’ results have dipped since the appointment of Jocelyn Gourvennec, plunging Les Canaris into a relegation battle. However, Nantes have sealed an all-important 2-1 win last week away at relegation-battlers Toulouse, courtesy of strikes from Mostafa Mohamed and Tino Kadewere.

According to L’Equipe, the duo is expected to start tonight against Les Parisiens with Sheffield United loanee Bénie Traoré deployed as a right-sided winger. Gourvennec is set to strengthen his midfield with the introductions of two former Premier League players, namely Pedro Chirivella and Moussa Sissoko. In the absence of Alban Lafont, the former Liverpool midfielder is set to captain Les Canaris, Rémy Descamps is poised to fill in between the sticks.

Besides, Wolfsburg loanee Nicolas Cozza is set to start for the first time with Nantes at left-back. The Loire-Atlantique side have lost their last four outings at home.
