First half –

The game began well- balanced at the Parc des Princes. While PSG looked for spaces in the attack, Angers disputed the midfield and saw their attackers punching behind. It was a battle to see who could pierce the defense more effectively. Until the owner of the house won the battle, at 12th minute. Mbappé received a beautiful shot from Draxler and kicked the goalkeeper out to open the scoring.

At the 16th minute, the game changed a little, after Thiago Motta received a red card.
The pace of the match was cautious, but became slow. When, in the 25th minute, the Parisians accelerated a little, they extended the score. Thiago Silva made a long throw for Kurzawa, who pushed the ball for Mbappé to make his second goal.

PSG looked for a third goal, but could not break the opponent’s defense. Angers defended well and managed to prevent another goal, until the whistle of the referee, announcing the end of the first half.

Second half –

If the pace of the first half was slow, that of the second was even more so. PSG followed the game trying to control the result, without giving Angers a chance to attack, but rarely causing danger in the opponent's area. At the 10th minute, Mbappé received a third great launch and had the chance to make a third beautiful goal, but sent it out.

Time was passing by and the technicians moved in their teams, managing the game. In the 20th minute, the third goal almost came out, with a nice shot from Rabiot, who was eventually blocked by Mbappé. In the rebound, Verratti shook the net, but was offside.
