Faced with Strasbourg without ambition, PSG won its last match of the year (4-0) and remains 3rd in Ligue 1 behind OL and Losc.
Private 11 players – Neymar, but also Presnel Kimpembe, Alessandro Florenzi, Layvin Kurzawa, Juan Bernat, Danilo Pereira, Leandro Paredes, Pablo Sarabia and Mauro Icardi -, the PSG did not necessarily shine when Strasbourg came on Wednesday. That didn’t stop him from winning 4-0. OL and Losc also won on this 17th day of Ligue 1 (the last of the year), the reigning champion therefore remains 3rd, one length between the two teams.
Great first for Pembélé!
We will first remember that Thomas Tuchel, often criticized for upsetting his team at each meeting, surprised in his composition. The Parisians have again evolved with a central hinge at 3, but with central left Mitchel Bakker. Colin Dagba, training right side, was sent to the left of the device and Timothée Pembélé was installed in the right hallway. As a symbol: on an overflow of the first city, Pembélé opened his goals counter at 18 (18th).
Largely domineering, facing the Alsatians who came to put the bus, Angel Di Maria, Kylian Mbappé and their teammates did not find the fault for a long time. 10 minutes from the end, on a loss of the opposing ball, the Argentine left-hander finally served the French prodigy, for his 12th goal in the league (80th). He will spend the holidays alone at the top of the Ligue 1 scorers’ standings. Idrissa Gueye (89th), with a long shot, and Moise Kean, on a badly repelled ball (91st), increased the score at the end.
