Dani Alvesâ late header snatched a hard-fought victory for runaway Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain as they came from behind to beat Nice 2-1.
In a frenetic encounter at Allianz Riviera, Alvesâ first Ligue 1 goal proved the difference in the 82nd minute, with Angel Di Maria having cancelled out Allan Saint-Maximinâs 17th-minute opener.
Unai Emeryâs side continue their run towards a fifth Ligue 1 title in six seasons and can now prepare for their battle for silverware after the international break, where they clash with Monaco in the Coupe de la Ligue final. Theyâll need to improve from their performance today though, as they lacked the cutting edge at times.
A massive blow to Nice and their European aspirations, particularly after what was an impressive performance. They could find themselves four points adrift of fifth-place this afternoon if Nantes win against FC Metz, which would increase the challenge ahead of the Ligue 1 finale.
