Round 22 Ligue 1
Parc des Princes
Paris Saint-Germain beat Montpellier 5-0
Objectives for PSG: Sarabia (8th), Di María (41st), Congregation (csc, 44th), Mbappé (57th), Kurzawa (65th)
Expulsions for Montpellier: Bertaud (17th), Chotard (88th)
Shaken in the first leg despite success at El Mosson (3-1), Paris Saint-Germain this time swept Montpellier (5-0) on the 22nd day of Ligue 1. A match dominated from the first to the last second.
This is what happens when Paris Saint-Germain is upset. Probably annoyed by Delort’s criticism slate this week, Thomas Tuchel’s men had a great pleasure in humiliating Montpellier! Not even 5 minutes of play and Sarabia already thought about opening the score in a magnificent collective action. But the goal was logically disallowed for an advantage. It was not enough to interrupt the huge domination of Paris as we found the left-hander Sarabia (1-0, 8th) who, with a magnificent curl on the right, found his way to the nets!
It was already starting to smell bad for visitors. Suffice it to say that the suitcase was felt when the doorman Bertaud (17th) was logically sent by a hand outside his surface in front of Mbappé. Neymar’s free kick was short and it was not until the end of the first half that PSG escaped thanks to Di Maria’s dive (2-0, 41st) and the goal-prank against his side of Congres (3-0, 44o).
False joy for Cavani
Consider a fright for Neymar, whose provocations did not please the Heraultais, and who complained of the ankle at halftime. Nothing serious since the Brazilian returned after the less provocative break, and especially the passerby of his accomplice Mbappé (4-0, 57o). A classic Parisian side. On the other hand, we expected less to see Kurzawa (5-0, 65o) score after a ball heavily repelled by third goalkeeper Carvalho.
We can talk about a real demonstration even if the party was tainted with one or two bad images, such as the sole of Chotard (88th), expelled for his gesture in Kimpembe. Or Mbappé’s anger on the way out. It is also worth noting the standing ovation reserved for Cavani at his entrance, and then when the Uruguayan scored a goal finally denied by the VAR for a negative price exit. Damage. In any case, the leader wins easily and temporarily puts OM in 13 lengths.
