Neymar, Mbappé, Di Maria and Icardi lined up at the kick off of Thomas Tuchel. A first in Ligue 1 Conforama. A choice that directly showed the ambitions of the German coach, this Sunday night, on the lawn of AS Saint-Etienne. Conversely, Claude Puel could rely on the sparkling Bouanga to animate his attack. And from the fourth minute, the Gabonese international was famous. After a speed of 40 meters, the attacker missed the target for a few centimeters. In the process, Neymar eliminated Debuchy and centered on Icardi, but that was without expecting an excellent return from Fofana (5th).

The next opportunity was the right one for Paris. After a save by Debuchy on his line, Paredes took the volley and deceived Ruffier with the help of Neymar and then Fofana (1-0, 10.). In order not to facilitate Stéphanoi's task, Jean-Eudes Aholou was expelled for a tackle uncontrolled at Paredes. While Neymar da Bouanga was given opportunities in his turn (30th and 32nd), Mbappé doubled the support for PSG. Neymar chained pass control over one step and sent the world champion into orbit, which tricked Ruffier with an unstoppable right leg shot (0-2, 44.). At the same time, he signed his 70th goal in Ligue 1 Conforama.

A shower with possibilities for PSG

After the break, Bouanga, very much in the leg, was the first one to be dangerous (46th and 50th places). Without succeeding in fooling Navas. In numerical inferiority, ASSE appeared more and more in difficulty and faced several offenses from PSG (52nd, 53rd, 55th, 57th). Neymar even got a penalty for Debuchy's foul. The Brazilian international, who wanted to take the law into his own hands, saw the shot hit the post (62).

To answer his possibilities, who else but Bouanga? The top scorer for the Greens conducted a festival in the Paris area, but missed his last gesture (64th). To really close the tension, Icardi, Fox (0-3, 74.), then Mbappé, for his double (0-4, 88.), found the way to the yarns. With this success, Paris is seven points ahead of OM in second place. ASSE is in 11th place.
