PSG largely won against Reims (4-0) on Sunday, closing the 22nd day of Ligue 1. Marco Verratti scored twice and Sergio Ramos his first but in Paris.
In an almost deserted Parc des Princes (the gauge of 5,000 spectators is still in place), the lucky ones present had a great time. Mauricio Pochettino’s men, always in search of solidity, offered a nice show punctuated by goals from unexpected players.
Indeed, the Parisians, who first stumbled on Reims for a long time (Kylian Mbappé, Angel Di Maria or even Mauro Icardi), found the fault with… Marco Verratti! With a nice shot from the left (44and), the Italian midfielder, who is often criticized for his lack of shooting in a game, ended 4 years 8 months and 17 days without scoring a goal. And to celebrate, he went there with his double (67and).
A good preparation three weeks from Real
A few minutes before this double, it was Sergio Ramos who scored his very first but in his new colors (63and). The Spanish defender released all his rage after this first goal. “I am very happy with the victory and with my first match here (as a starter, editor’s note), with this goal in addition, named the former Real Madrid player at the microphone of Amazon. Work always gives you a reward. I’m happy to have played 90 minutes. I like to play at home, to have the support of the public. I’m happy with my first goal with PSG, I hope there will be others. (…) We arrive at the best time of the season, between the championship, the Cup and the Champions League. I have been away from the field for a long time, from my house, I am happy to be back there. That’s where I feel good.”
Finally, it was Danilo Pereira, defensive midfielder, who closed the Parisian attacking festival.
At the end of this 22and League day, the positions remain on the podium. PSG (53 pts), Nice (42 pts) and Marseille (40 pts) all won.
