Paris Saint-Germain largely dominated and the Ligue 1 leaders have managed to hold on to extend their advantage over Monaco to 17 points. They were far from their best during the second half, when complacent play allowed Angers to get back into the game, but they‚Äôve nonetheless left with all three points.
Mbappe at the double as Motta sees red. Paris Saint-Germain had Kylian Mbappe to thank for their 2-1 win over Angers in Ligue 1 after Thiago Motta was sent off.
Kylian Mbappe netted a first-half brace as Paris Saint-Germain continued their march towards the Ligue 1 title with a 2-1 win over Angers ‚Äď despite playing the majority of Wednesday‚Äôs game at the Parc des Princes with 10 men.
Mbappe‚Äôs 18th and 19th goals in PSG colours came either side Thiago Motta‚Äôs red card for raking studs across Romain Thomas ‚Äď an incident that left the Angers defender with a nasty graze across his ribcage.
Unai Emery‚Äôs side continued to attack despite being depleted, with Julian Draxler a majestic playmaking influence in midfield, and should have led more handsomely before Angers top scorer Karl Toko Ekambi came off the bench to set up a grandstand finish.
Paris Saint-Germain are 17 points ahead of Monaco at the summit having played a game more ahead of Sunday‚Äôs trip to Nice.
