Much better than its evening opponent, PSG only pushed in the first period between the 1st and the 10th minute, then between the 35th and the 45th. Enough to score two goals, while the Angevins, suffocated by the Parisian pressing, relied on Bernardoni so as not to take water completely on a soggy lawn. The Angevin goalkeeper successively repulsed the strikes of Mbappé (4th), Neymar (10th), Florenzi (41st) and Verratti (42nd).

Brilliant inspiration from Florenzi

Despite his good first half, Bernardoni couldn’t do anything on the rookie’s brilliant inspiration Alessandro Florenzi.

For the third time in six matches, the first served the second from a corner, for the reduction of Angers (52nd).

Bahoken very close to equalizer

Finally, if Tuchel wants to quibble, he can blame his players for not having played fully the first period. For a good twenty minutes, the Parisians fell back into a form of “ease”, leaving the ball to Angevins. A “highlight” which allowed the SCO to get an opportunity on a beautiful head of Bahoken who came close to the goals of Navas (13th). The Costa Rican goalkeeper had not fallen asleep and proved it fifteen minutes later by coming out perfectly in the feet of the Angevin striker launched in the depth by Fulgini (28th).

By winning very widely this Friday evening, PSG won its tenth consecutive game in all competitions against Angers. A victory acquired with seriousness, application, and realism. All that Tuchel asked for a week ago. “If we can score 8 goals, we must score 8 goals“Said the German coach after the match against Reims. His players did not apply the instructions to the letter, but at least tried to do so, this Friday night, against Angers.
