PSG drop Mbappe for title decider at Nantes

PSG again made to wait for Ligue 1 title after Nantes defeat

PSG again made to wait for Ligue 1 title after Nantes defeat

Victory would have put PSG out of reach at the top of the standings with six games left, but Dani Alves's opener was cancelled out by Diego Carlos before Majeed Waris and an own goal by Alves gave the Canaries all three points at La Beaujoire.

Alves tried his luck from 30 yard out and his strike found the top corner.

Both sides pushed for a second as the half dawned, but the home team regained control a minute to halftime after Abdul Warris tapped in from the back-post.

Diego Carlos hit his double and the third for FC Nantes in the 52nd minute to leave the visitors wandering on the field.

Kalifa Coulibaly could have scored Nantes' fourth but missed an open goal with Gianluigi Buffon well out of his area.

With one minute to go until the end of the game, Metehan Guclu made it 3-2 but PSG could not grab an equaliser in stoppage time.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing fired Cardiff ahead in the 22nd minute, adding the finishing touch to a swift counter-attack. Neil Warnock's side would have been pushed to the brink of relegation with a defeat at the Amex Stadium .

Kylian Mbappe was the latest star to slide out of PSG's decimated squad as conflicting reports mentioned a rumoured falling out with head coach Tuchel and minor fitness concerns as possible explanations.

The reigning champions are missing eight players between injuries and suspensions, with Neymar and Edinson Cavani out for months and other key players like Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Marco Verratti and Angel Di Maria all unavailable.

PSG let in two goals against Lille from set pieces and did so again this time.

- Nantes have won four of their last nine games in Ligue 1 (D1 L4), after winning none of the previous five (D1 L4).

- The Parisiens have lost three of their last seven away games in Ligue 1 (W4), after losing none of the previous 17 (W12 D5).
