Paris Saint-Germain picked up their tenth win in 12 Ligue 1 matches this season turning the game at Angers into a leisurely walk in the park from early on. Playing without Neymar, it was Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani who sent the ball in, twice each, with Julian Draxler as well adding his name on the scoresheet.
For Cavani, those two were goals number 99 and 100 in France’s championship, a remarkable feat that took him no more than 144 appearances(!).
I try to give everything for my team. Football is like that. Today we are here, but after we don’t know. I give the maximum. If things go well, I’m happy for myself, for the team, for the club, for the fans. But I don’t play to be a legend. I play for pleasure, for the passion that I have as a football player
the Uruguayan striker told reporters after the 5-0 at Angers, keeping a low profile.
It’s a nice evening because we came here to win and we leave with the three points after playing a big game. We earned the three points. We are happy, we have done a lot of important things today
Cavani said. As for his coach, Unai Emery, he looked very satisfied with the win, and with how many scoring chances his team created.
The most important thing for our strikers is to have opportunities to score. Afterwards, the ball goes in the net or not. But we know that our strikers will score if we have opportunities,. Cavani scored, Mbappe scored – the effectiveness of our strikers has improved. I think it’s good for all our players, not just for offensive players. It’s also good for those who control midfield and the ball, those who give the balls to the strikers
the PSG coach said.
