PSG vs Lille 2 − 1 (Ligue 1 2021 Goals & Highlights)

4 weeks ago

Angel Di Maria showed his worth as he set up the first and scored the winner to give Paris Saint-Germain a 2-1 win against champions Lille in Ligue 1 after Lionel Messi limped off injured on Friday.

In the absence of Kylian Mbappe, who is suffering from an infection, Di Maria shone throughout the game, providing captain Marquinhos with the equaliser after Jonathan David's opener before finding the back of the net two minutes from time.

After Messi left the pitch at the break with a muscle problem, Argentine winger Di Maria found his range to put leaders PSG on 31 points from 12 games, 10 ahead of second-placed Lens.

Lille, who would have deserved better after a convincing first half, are 11th with 15 points

Both teams went end-to-end in an entertaining opening half, but Lille showed more poise and it took a superb save from Gianluigi Donnarumma to deny Burak Yilmaz in the first minute.

Lille, looking more like the team that dominated the league last season, were rewarded in the 31st minute when David opened his right foot to deflect Yilmaz's powerful cross into the roof of the net from point-blank range.

Messi, who has yet to score for PSG in five league appearances, was replaced at half-time by Mauro Icardi, as he appeared to be still suffering from the muscle problem that forced him to miss training with the team on Thursday.
