The win over Nîmes in numbers
Check out the key stats from Paris Saint-Germain's 4-0 Ligue 1 win over Nîmes Olympique on Friday.
Rafinha and Moise Kean, who arrived from Barcelona and Everton respectively during the transfer window, made their first competitive appearances. The Brazil international, who provided an assist, and the Italy international are the 465th and 466th players in the capital club's history.
By winning in the Gard region, Paris Saint-Germain picked up their fifth successive league win, the league's best current streak. The capital club have kept four clean sheets in that run, as many as they had recorded in their previous 14 top-flight outings.
With two strikes in the game, it means Kylian Mbappé has had a hand in a goal in each of his last seven league games (8 goals, 4 assists). It's his best series since February-March 2019 (7 games) and the second-best of his career since August-November 2018 (8 matches). The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has scored 12 braces with Paris since his arrival in September 2017, four more than any other player during that time.
Paris Saint-Germain attempted no fewer than 30 shots. They have only done better once since the start of OPTA's data analysis in 2006/07: they had 35 attempts at goal in the 1-1 draw with AC Ajaccio on 18 August, 2013. Nîmes had just five shots, their lowest total since registering the same amount also against Paris on 11 August 2019. It's also their lowest total since returning to L1 in 2018.
