Defeated by Manchester United in the Champions League, PSG recovered when Dijon came (4-0) on Saturday night.
If the starting lineup of Thomas Tuchel caused a scandal before PSG-Dijon, the German coach having decided to replace Danilo Pereira in central hinge to put Marquinhos back in number 6, the Parisians did not make any waves during their meeting of the 8th day of Ligue 1. They won 4-0, while they were already on a scathing 6-1 against Angers and 4-0 in Nîmes, to take the lead while waiting for the meeting of Lille in Nice.
Despite the absence of a dozen players, Neymar and his teammates had no problem finding the loophole in the face of the weak Burgundy formation. Moise kean took the opportunity to open his goals counter with PSG, on a cross Mitchel bakker (3rd), before converting an offering from the “Ney” (23rd). Already launched at half-time in Tuesday’s loss to Manchester United (1-2) in the Champions League, the Italian international seems to be a good alternative in the absence of Mauro Icardi.
The Brazilian crack then had a few opportunities to shake the nets, but without success. While the Dijonnais did not revive the suspense, despite clear opportunities missed by Eric Junior Dina-Ebimbe (19th) and Mama Baldé (75th), it was finally Kylian Mbappé, launched for the last 20 minutes, who struck twice at the end of the match.
Draxler again injured
The French prodigy, launched by Neymar, first scored with a left strike (82 ‘), before benefiting from a serve from Pablo Sarabia (88’). The Spain attacking midfielder did not score and Julian Draxler, also starting, gave up his spot on the hour mark after a hamstring injury that could make him unavailable for several weeks.
