After two setbacks as an opening, PSG made up for it by winning their last four Ligue 1 matches. The most recent this Friday at the expense of Angers, opening the 6e lifting. On the river score of 6-1.
Should we see the influence of Roland-Garros, whose enclosure is located a stone’s throw from the Parc des Princes?

They who had started their championship so badly confirm their rise to power. With as many goals scored tonight as in their three previous outings against Metz (1-0), Nice (0-3) and Reims (0-2).
Unbeaten since January 1975 against the SCO – a series of 20 top-flight appearances – this time, PSG were able to rely on their stars to make the powder speak. In the first place Neymar, who nevertheless almost missed this meeting after having deplored a calf injury after his performance in Champagne last week. Goalscorer on both sides of the break (36e, 47e), the Auriverde phenomenon also rewarded Gueye with an assist (71e).
Florenzi’s incredible goal
His offensive mate, Mbappé, also shone, delivering four-star service to the Brazilian on his first achievement and sealing the score in the dying moments of the game (84e). Draxler – holder in the absence of a suspended Di Maria – also took part in the party (57e), just five minutes after the hard-won gap reduction by Traoré (52e). The honors of the detonator went to defensive reinforcement Florenzi, author of an improbable half-volley from the right angle of the surface to prematurely open hostilities (7e). And here is Paris already back in the upper echelons, provisionally one step behind the Rennes leader.
