    How was Mbappe missed that? PSG breaks on a counter as Hakimi carries the ball inside the Nice penalty area. Schmeichel comes out and prevents Hakimi from taking the shot.

    PREVIEW (Via AP)

    When ​​​Christophe Galtier ​​​left ​​​Nice ​​​to coach ​​​Paris Saint-Germain, ​​​he had hopes of leading the club to its first Champions League title.

    Now he heads back to Nice for Saturday’s league game fighting to save his job after PSG’s terrible run of form. Last weekend’s loss to Lyon was PSG’s second straight home defeat in the league and eighth across all competitions this year.

    “That’s far too many. Match after match we’re using up our trump cards,” Galtier said. “Everyone, myself included, needs to be fully aware of the situation and the work that needs to be done.”

    The Lyon loss has given second-place Lens and third-place Marseille — both six points behind PSG — a glimmer of hope with nine rounds left.
