An excellent cross, a clever header, and just like that, PSG were 1-0 up against Nice Friday night, just over two minutes into the game.
Same protagonists, same provider, same finisher, 2-0 in the 31st minute, and practically… game over at Parc des Princes, thanks to Angel di Maria and Edinson Cavani.
It was important to win tonight and take all three points after the draw in Marseille
di Maria told reporters after the 3-0 (Dante scored an own goal in the second half, pressured by the Argentine and Dani Alves) over Nice.
We had to get the victory and we did that, so we are happy. I am also very happy to have played my 100th match with PSG. I have been here for around two-and-a-half years and I have had some fantastic moments with this club. I hope to experience some even more exceptional moments here
the Argentina international also said, having played one of his best games for PSG.
As for Cavani, the two he scored last night were his goals number 98 and 99 in the Ligue 1, and he’s about to celebrate another major accomplishment.
Every match is different. Against Marseille, it was more complicated because the pitch is different – there were a lot of things we could have done better. Here, we got back to scoring ways in the first half and that allowed us to play with more serenity and then kill off the game
the Uruguayan said, having led PSG in scoring, in a game which Neymar had to attend from the stands, serving his one-game ban.
