Paris Saint-Germain demolished Angers 6-1 with a great Neymar game: two goals and luxuries everywhere. Paredes started and Di María was not due to suspension.
It was the game to beat and show off. And they did. PSG has no rival. It is true that this new season began with two defeats, against Lens and the classic with Marseille, with controversy. However, after getting into the rhythm, he already adds four consecutive victories that leave it close to reaching the tip. The 6-1 against Angers was a complete show, although only the goal of Mauro Icardi was missing.
Ángel Di María was the great absence. He had to fulfill the first of the four suspension dates that they gave for spitting on Alvaro Gonzalez in the derby against Marseille.
This time the Parisians did not miss one of their great figures and walked before a rival who arrived with the same points. It was a 6-1 in which Neymar made the difference with his two goals and all his football. The rest of the goals? Florenzi, Draxler, Gueye and Mbappé.
The Brazilian spent it enjoying his luxuries during the game and also taking advantage of having Mbappé by his side to be unstoppable. The Frenchman put together a game to assist him and in the end there was a return of favors with the 6-1.
And what happened to Icardi? Mauro had just scored the double for 2-0 on the previous date at Reims, but this Friday he had no clear chances despite having thrashed.
Mbappé looked for him at the beginning of the game, but they got to intercept the pass with just enough. The Rosario did give an assist, but the play was disabled by offside.
Leandro Paredes was also part of the starting 11 before traveling to join the Argentine National Team for the start of the Qualifiers. Sharing the “double 5” with Verratti, he had no problems and ended up coming out due to a tactical decision with the match already settled.
With this victory opening the sixth date, PSG climbed to second place in Ligue 1. They were left with 12 points, one behind Rennes, who this Sunday will seek to move away again when they host Reims.
But the signal has already arrived from Paris: the team that passes everyone on top in France is back. With the magic of Neymar, an unstoppable Mbappé and the goals of Icardi that will already come.
