The Argentine scored and gave an assist in Paris Saint Germain 3 to 0, after Lionel Scaloni did not call him for the Qualifiers. Mauro Icardi was the starter.
Ángel Di María was key in PSG’s offensive performance in the 3-0 victory against Nice, as a visitor, in Ligue 1 in France. And he did it shortly after not being summoned by Lionel Scaloni for the South American Qualifiers that the National Team must play.
The Santa Fe stood out with a goal after pushing the ball after a great play by Kylian Mbappé, author of the 1-0, and also provided an assist when he threw the center of the goal from the head of Marquinhos, which sentenced the final 3-0.
In the arc of Nice was the Argentine Walter Benitez, that nothing could do against the power of the Parisians.
The start of Ligue 1 was uphill for Paris Saint Germain, who not only suffered from coronavirus infections from their main figures, but also, when they recovered a good part of them, they lost Neymar and Leandro Paredes again for two dates, after the scandal in the classic against Olympique de Marseille.
With a team with many casualties, Thomas Tuchel’s team, the same one that had just played the Champions League final, lost the first two games against Lens and Marseille.
After the 1-0 victory against Metz, now the Parisian team showed their best side and were left with the victory against Nice by a resounding 3-0.
Of course, this return to his best football has a logical explanation: Mbappé, who missed the first dates due to his positive for coronavirus, started again and was the great figure of the match.
The Frenchman was given the penalty to open the game, he himself changed it for a goal and then he spent it disturbing the rival defense with his speed. They could only stop him with constant infractions and not even that was enough.
Mauro Icardi also started and completed 90 minutes, which helps him continue to gain confidence and minutes, despite the fact that he could not score in the net.
With this victory, PSG reached six points in the first four matches of Ligue 1 and recovered from the initial two defeats. Will it continue on this path?
