PSG has set cruising speed after its rough start to the season and four consecutive wins have already placed it one point behind the leader Rennes. Today his victim was Angers (6-1), powerless to stop a rival who is once again intractable with Neymar, author of his first two in Ligue 1, and Kylian Mbappé, who scored one, already in full swing after his positive for Covid-19 and a sanction in the case of the Brazilian.
Great goal by an ‘unknown’ Florenzi in Valencia
Thomas Tuchel complains that he needs reinforcements but Alessandro Florenzi, the only one who has arrived, is giving him a great performance at the start of the season. The Italian full back did not exactly triumph at Valencia, whose fans should not believe the goal he signed to open the scoring in the 7th minute with a perfect volleyball that slipped through the squad.
PSG had an excellent start to the game, with a fluid game and constant arrivals, but when the pace slowed somewhat a brave Angers reacted and lavished some dangerous arrival, such as a chopped header from Stephane Bahoken that licked the post (13 ‘).
Spectacular connection Mbappé-Ney in the 2-0
It was interesting to see the evolutions of the left wing Rayan Aït-Nouri, who at 19 his representative Jorge Mendes is about to place in Wolverhampton. The promising player offered some details of his quality, but PSG knows how to score when they want the rhythm of the game and accelerated before the break to achieve 2-0.
It was a spectacular goal in its preparation and execution. Mbappé overflowed on the left passing him and the ball between two defenders and gave back for Neymar to nail it into the net by high (36 ‘).
Goalkeeper Paul Bernardoni prevented the third Parisian goal with several stops, especially in a header by Florenzi after a great center by Neymar, but after the break the former Azulgrana sentenced by shooting a dead ball in the area (47 ‘).
Angers tried to get into the game with a good header from their central Ismail Traoré after a corner (52 ‘), but just five minutes later Julian Draxler definitively sentenced the game with a shot that deflected a defender before entering (57’).
Goals with luck and Mbappé puts the icing on the cake
Newcomer Idrissa Gueye was also lucky at 5-1 as his shot from outside the area also hit a defender and threw Bernardoni off (71 ‘). The icing on the cake was Mbappé with his exquisite stamp by pushing a delayed center by Pablo Sarabia into the net at will, who had also just entered and took advantage of the freshness to overflow.
