The Canadian talent decides on the 20 ‘the clash at the top at PSG. Lyon is stopped in Lens, Monaco’s net poker against Metz
On the 31st day of League 1 and the Little to win the direct clash between the top of the class, winning 0-1 with David’s goal in the 20 ‘: Neymar and Tiago Djalò expelled in the final. Losc in the lead at +3 on Parisians. Lyon did not take advantage of the knockout of the French champions to hook them to second place: a Lens ends 1-1, with Paqueta which saves the OL after the advantage of Clauss. Monaco third after the 4-0 accrued all in the second half against Metz.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN-LILLE 0-1
After 25 years Lille returns to win at Paris Saint-Germain and the success is worth the first place alone, + 3 on the boys of the capital. The most anticipated match of the day in Ligue 1 sees the most anticipated player as the protagonist of the first ring at the Parco dei Principi after a quarter of an hour: it is Mbappé, of course, who from inside the area is denied the advantage of the talent between the poles that responds to the name of Maignan. However, the second hand makes five turns of the clock and it is the guests who pass forward: in a rather linear action, Ikoné from the right serves David in the middle, who kicks towards Navas and mocked him thanks to the deflection of a defender. The PSG is thus forced to chase and tries to assert the golden weight of its squad, but not even with the interval the necessary ideas seem to arrive. Pochettino shuffles the cards a bit, Neymar becomes dangerous even if nervous and Lille continues to show up, refusing to close in defense. In the 34th minute, for example, when Yilmaz would have had to angle the shot a little more to extend, but Navas managed to oppose the central shot. PSG tries to launch a final boarding, but the difficulties are condensed with the colossal nonsense of Neymar: in the 90 ‘the Brazilian gets a second yellow card, like Tiago Djalò, for a reaction foul. Third defeat for the Parisians in three direct clashes at the Parco dei Principi.
Lyon did not take advantage of PSG’s abrupt stop and, not only did they not engage the Parisians in second position, but were also overtaken in third place by Monaco. At 34 ‘Cheick Oumar Doucoure catches the ball on the edge after a good assist from Fofana and scores by kicking the ball on the right; however the advantage of Lens was promptly canceled by the Var, who saw a handball by the Malaysian midfielder himself. Nothing to do then for Garcia’s team, which would like to hook PSG in second place in the standings but, after 65 minutes of territorial domination, goes under in the score: ball lost in the heart of Caqueret’s game, Cahuzac serves Kakuta, who raises the look and see the insertion of Clauss that he realizes to perfection between Lopes’ legs. The hosts took the lead, but Paquetá thought about it in the 81st minute to reiterate on the net a shot by Cherki that had been blocked by the opposing defense. 1-1. OL ending in ten men due to the expulsion of Slimani in the 90 ‘. Good point for Lens in Europe.
If Monaco hasn’t lost to Louis II since December 16, there must be a reason. And certainly this is not Metz the team that can break the series of useful results of the boys of the Principality, who overcome the commitment of Easter Eve at a gallop and continue to put apprehension to the other three big names. Shortly after the half hour Volland hits the post with a nice diving header, but the first half turns out to be unpredictably netted. However, just a couple of minutes and a half for Jovetic, in the second half, is enough to remedy the stall of the first 45 ‘: Caillard knocks him out after a good play and from the spot the person in charge is Fabregas, who with the usual class leads to finished the mission. A couple of possessions pass and Matabo gives meaning to one of his slaloms by triggering Volland’s southpaw: low shot to cross and double the Monaco. At this point Metz believes less in the enterprise, definitively ceasing to dream when at 32 ‘Ben Yedder unloads an energetic wave of his own in goal with a powerful shot. At 3 ‘from the end captain Boye finally crushes Gelson Martins’ escape with a foul in the area, gets the second yellow card and sees Ben Yedder close the poker with a personal double on a penalty.
