Paris Saint-Germain extended their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to 17 points as they secured an easy win over Dijon. This was PSG’s first game since their loss to Manchester United, and Thomas Tuchel’s men responded with a 4-0 hammering of lowly Dijon, who had been thrashed 8-0 by the Parisians last season.
Brazilian Marquinhos started the rout from an Angel di Maria corner, before Kylian Mbappe doubled the lead with his strike- his 30th goal of the season. Di Maria himself added a third with a nice free kick, and Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting, the club’s shock signing from Stoke, netted only his second goal in PSG colours to round off proceedings.
PSG weren’t really troubled for this victory, and the player ratings below would testify to that. There were perhaps more eyeballs on the Juventus-Atleti clash which also featured three Frenchmen- Matuidi, Lemar and Griezmann.
Nevertheless, a nice win for PSG. Their next clash, against Marseille, should provide stiffer opposition.
