Paris Saint Germain defeated Angers by 2 goals to 1 in the Ligue 1 today. Danilo and Kylian Mbappe got on the scoresheet for the host, while Fulgini scored for Angers.
The visitors took the lead in the first half when Fulgini found the back of the net in the 36th minutes, assisted by Boufal.
The home side dominated possession but failed to find the back of the net.
Just Herrera thought he had leveled the scores for PSG, but it was overruled for offside.
In the second half, Danilo Pereira headed home for Mbappe's cross in the 69th minutes to level the scores for the host.
In the 87th minutes, Kylian Mbappe added the second goal from the penalty spot, after Capella was deemed to have handled Icardi's header in the box.
The Crucial Decision.
PSG manager, Mauricio Pochettino saw that the pace of the game was very slow in the second half and nothing seems to be working for the home team despite Mbappe's incessant treat upfront.
He then brought in attacking minded players. In the 63rd minutes, Abdou Diallo was replaced by Juan Bernat, Georgino Wijnaldum came in for Rafinha Alcantara.
He turned to the bench once more in the 72nd minutes, with Achraf Hakimi and Julian Draxler replacing Colin Dagba and Ander Herrera.
Paris Saint Germain performed well, but lacked the creativity of Neymar and Lionel Messi in the final third.
