Second-half goals from Kylian Mbappe and Neymar were enough to secure all three points for PSG in Ligue 1 over Nantes.

It appeared that FC Nantes were going to give PSG a tough night after the score was held at 0-0 at the halfway stage.

But a second-half piece fo pure genius Kylian Mbappe broke the deadlock.

As the cross from Angel di Maria came in from the right-wing, somehow Mbappe did a half pirouette and back healed the ball into the back of the net.

Even though the Parc des Princes crowd went wild, they were still scratching their heads and wondering how on earth did that just happen.

PSG failed to take the initiative and capitalize on their opponents need to seek a goal.

It was not until the 85th minute with what was ultimately his last contribution of the night, that Neymar doubled the score and secured the points.

PSG was awarded a penalty after a foul on the in-form Mauro Icardi.

Up stepped Neymar to dispatch the ball away for a 2-0 win to the home side.

The victory gives PSG a five-point cushion at the top Ligue 1 again, as Marsiles sit in the second spot.
