Ligue 1: Moses Simon desperate to end PSG jinx

Moses Simon will be desperate to end the jinx which has seen him fail to secure victory against Paris Saint-Germain in three Ligue 1 matches with Nantes really struggling this season.

After the jubilation of knocking Barcelona out of the UEFA Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain return to the domestic scene on Sunday when they welcome Nantes to the Parc des Princes.

As many as 17 places and 36 points separate the two sides in the table at this very moment with PSG occupying second spot while their relegation-threatened opponents languish in 19th.

Simon scored his team’s only goal as they continued the chase for their first home win in a league match since October 18 but they fell short in a 2-1 loss against Reims on March 3rd.

It was his fourth goal in 23 league games this term. He is now three goals shy of his best scoring record in a league season, having scored seven times at Gent (2014-15) and Trencin (2013-14).

The 25-year-old is the third-highest scoring player for Nantes in the current campaign after French duo, Ludovic Blas and Imran Louza who have scored seven and five goals respectively.

Simon will be aiming to inspire Nantes to victory when they visit PSG for their next Ligue 1 outing on Sunday, having scored once against them on 4 February, 2020 but his side lost 2-1.

However, Nantes travel to the Parc des Princes, having lost just one of their last five away from home but have lost 17 of their last 18 league ties versus PSG who won 3-0 earlier this season.
