PSG drastically beat Angers SCO by a score of 6-1 Friday at the opening of the 6th day of Ligue 1. With this fourth consecutive victory in the league, the club of the capital thus seizes the second provisional place in the standings, one point behind the Rennes leader.
Neymar scored twice.
Paris SG, carried by a double from Neymar, managed his first card of the season against Angers (6-1), Friday at the opening of the 6th day of Ligue 1, which reinforces his current strengths, before an end of agitated transfer window.
If he does not know what he will win before the market closes on Monday evening, PSG already knows what he has not lost: his immense stock of talent, which places him among the best teams in Europe.
The two superstars Kylian Mbappé and Neymar have, again, illuminated the evening.
A technical goal (36th) sums up their activity: the first slipped between two defenders to serve the second who, with a strike under the bar, sealed the fate of the match before half-time.
Neymar has finally unlocked his counter
What if keeping them was the best thing that happened to the club this summer?
The two accomplices can guide the club in the final of the Champions League as to find the solution against the very tight 5-4-1 of Angers.
With them, PSG came one point closer to leader Rennes before the international break, with a fourth success in a row.
Before returning to C1 on October 20 with a shock against Manchester United, "Kyky" and "Ney" continue to get back on their feet, after a start to the season complicated by their positive tests for Covid-19 and two initial defeats.
Aligned as a left winger in a 4-4-2 at kickoff, Neymar, who had never started a Parisian season without having scored in one of his first two matches, has finally unlocked his counter.
He even managed a brace (47th), his first in L1 since January 26.
Mbappé took longer to score (84th): his efforts in animation were rewarded at the very end of the match, with a flat foot to the recovery of a cross from Pablo Sarabia.
In the meantime, Julian Draxler (57th) and Idrissa Gueye (71st) weighed down the scoreboard, proving that PSG had left behind the problems of offensive realism observed in Reims (2-0) last Sunday.
