PSG was, this Saturday, a small step away from confirming the conquest of another French title. Mauricio Pochettino’s team received and beat Marseille, 2-1, in a game on the 32nd round of Ligue 1.
Assisted by Verratti, Neymar opened the scoring (12 minutes) and took the stands at Parc des Princes to the fire. Caleta-Car still re-established equality (31′), but Mbappé returned the advantage to the hosts before the break (45+4′), converting a penalty with VAR intervention. In the middle (41′), Messi also had a goal disallowed, due to an irregular position.
In the second half, the visitors looked for an equalizer, a goal that ran into another VAR action: Saliba was ahead at the moment (85′) when he beat Donnarumma.
After the duel between the top two in the standings is over, PSG extends the advantage over Marseille, now fixed at 15 points (74/59).
