The Argentine offensive midfielder scored two goals in the victory against Rennes and arrives motivated to the double date of the South American Qualifiers.
Angel Di María will arrive motivated and with confidence on the rise to the double knockout date that the Argentina National Team will play against Paraguay, on the 12th, and Peru, on the 17th, after making a good performance and scoring a double and an assist in the Paris Saint Germain’s home triumph against Rennes 3-0 at the Parc des Princes for Ligue 1.
The Argentine started at PSG, like Leandro Paredes, and was positioned as a playmaker on the left side of the attack: on that side came his first goal – which was the second for his team – when he received a filtered pass on the edge of the offside and he ran off alone until he faced Senegalese goalkeeper Alfred Gomis, whom he beat with a very nice left-handed hole.
Already in the second half, the Rosario stood out again when he received a pass from Colin Dagba and again surpassed goalkeeper Gomis with a low shot that declared it 3-0 and sealed the victory of PSG.
In addition, Di María had been instrumental in the first stage when he exerted high pressure, Lea Siliki stole the ball and delivered an assist Moise Kean, who scored the first goal for PSG and opened the game.
The Argentine player became in this meeting the “engine” of a PSG that has many casualties due to injury, among which those of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Mauro Icardi and Marco Verratti stand out.
This forced the German PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel, to improvise an attack with the Italians Moise Kean and Alessandro Florenzi, who had not been a starter in the team.
With this victory, PSG escaped to the top of the standings: they are now five points ahead of their guard Lille, who will be visiting Stade Brestoits tomorrow.
This good performance of Di María comes just at the moment when the Argentine coach Lionel Scaloni He trusted him again and called him up for the double knockout date that is coming to the Argentine National Team.
Argentina’s first match will be on Thursday, November 12, at home against Paraguay in La Bombonera and then visit Peru at the National Stadium.
