Majeed Waris scores in Nantes win over PSG

Ghanaian international striker Abdul Majeed Waris was on target for Nantes as they defeated Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the French Ligue I to put the visitor's title on hold for another week.

The diminutive attacker gave FC Nantes a 2-1 lead after Diego Carlos had cancelled an opening goal from Dani Alves for the visitors.

Waris tapped into an empty net after he latched onto a pass from Samuel Moutoussamy, before late strikes from Diego Carlos and Metehan Guclu saw the game ending 3-2.

PSG needed a win to guarantee them the 2018/19 French Ligue I trophy and wasted no time in taking the lead through Dani Alves after just 19 minutes into the game.

Diego Carlos pulled parity for the host 2 minutes later before Majeed Waris’s last goal on the stroke of half time gave FC Nantes a 2-1 lead in the cagey game at the Stade de la Beajuoire.

The visitors saw their plight compounded when Diego Carlos registered his personal double, 7 minutes into the second half, to hand Nantes a 3-1 healthy lead.

Thomas Tuchel and his visitors pulled one back with virtually the last kick of the game but had to wait another week to celebrate their 2018/19 domestic league trophy.
