PSG will have to wait until Saturday to proclaim themselves champions of Ligue 1. Even though I took 15 points off the Marseilles with five games to play, the parisians need to wait to sing the alirón since the criterion that governs the championship is the general goalaverage and not the particular one. They won 0-3 against Angers, but the comeback of Sampaoli’s men in Nantes, winning 3-2, prevented the tenth title that will surely come in the next few days.
Without Messi nor Verratti, both injuredPochettino decided, practically with the league sentenced, an unprecedented adjustment to date: play with three central defenders. The Argentine joined Ramos, Kehrer and Marquinhos in the rear axis to leave Bernat and Achaf Hakimi The rails. in attack, Di Maria, Ebimbe and Mbappe were starters before the loss of Neymarwho was sanctioned for card accumulation. Icardi started as a starterbut was injured in the warm-up and could not start.
The meeting started in Angers with a frenetic pace. The Angevins surprisingly took the lead in the opening barscreating a blatant chance at a shot from boufal from the front that ended up repelling Keylor Navas in an extraordinary way. Kehrer had the 0-1, but Mandrea was attentive. Before getting injured and practically letting his team down morally, Boufal had a one-on-one with Keylor Navasbut his shot went wide.
That injury, so cruel for the locals, revived the PSG that, although he did not have a very clear domain, he ended up finding Mbappe, which even on the grayest days continues to produce goals. the talent of bondy made it 0-1 thanks to a fantastic individual play and ended up surprising mandrea with a cross shot with the left leg. Although Ali Cho He put fear in PSG’s body with a shot at the post in the front, Sergio Ramos practically sentenced the match with a trademark shot of the house to Di María’s center just before the break.
In the second part, the PSG continued to torment a non-existent Angers unable to react. Mbappe, unleashed throughout the game, generated two very clear chances, but did not end up putting the finishing touches on his rival. Which Marquinhos Yes. The Brazilian center-back took advantage of another great assist from Di María to make it 0-3 and practically complete a process for the Parisians. The victory of Marseille avoided the alirón, but it will probably take place on Saturday against lens.
The rest of the day: Lyon bump, relegation burns…
In a vibrant day, with five games in each turn, Ligue 1 was filled with emotion. In the relegation final, Girondins and Saint-Etienne tied and closed the day in the abyss. The penultimate went two goals ahead, but the visitors tied the game. Lorient gains oxygen at the expense of Metz, which is already eight from permanence. Dango Ouattara, who came on in the 85th minute, scored the winning goal in the 94th minute, a goal that could well be worth a save. Golovin prolonged Monaco’s good run, which is already looking into the eyes of the Champions. With their 1-0 win against Nice, they remain fifth, tied with Strasbourg and Stade Rennais. They clashed with each other and decided a goal from Ajorque for Stephan’s team (2-1).
Reims wins a golden win for virtual salvation against Lille who already assumes that he will go from champion to being far from European competitions. To make matters worse, he suffers it at the edge of the end. Abdelhamid scored in discount time for a new disappointment for the one who achieved the feat last season. It was a heart attack date. Clermont, in direct duel to avoid burning against Troyes, added three points of órdago. Seidu left them with ten in the 70th minute, but Balde equalized in the 85th minute with his expulsion and Bayo broke the 0-0 lead with two to go. The day closes with a new defeat for lyons, disappointing team of the season with permission from Lille. He fell 2-1 against Brest. Finally, Lens won 2-0 at Montpellier and is not losing ground in the battle for Europe.
