Paris Saint Germain vs Lille Highlights





90' + 3' FULL-TIME: PSG 2-0 LILLE



90' + 1' CHANCE FOR CAVANI! Cavani tries to be clever as he chips the ball over Maignan but also over the crossbar after being teed up by Di Maria. He had just the keeper to beat and simply had to score.
90' PSG are patiently probing away for a third goal that would kill off their opponents for good. Cavani pulls the ball back for Bernat, who in turn plays it into the path of Mbappe, but the attack breaks down.

64' Cavani has now been sent to warm up. It looks as though Mbappe will be brought on first, though, with Neymar the likely candidate to come off.


61' Galtier makes his first change of the contest by bringing on Sanches for Xeka.

61' NEARLY! Draxler gets on the end of Icardi's back-heeled pass and sends a drilled shot inches wide of the far post.

60' ANOTHER NAVAS SAVE! Di Maria passes the ball straight to Araujo and the Lille winger gets in a powerful shot. Navas, not for the first time today, is alert to the danger and makes the save.

56' DRAXLER BLASTS OVER! It should be game over! Di Maria plays in Draxler in a reverse of PSG's second goal, but the latter fires over the crossbar with just Maignan to beat. Poor attempt!

33' Lille, who have not exactly played badly, now have a real mountain to climb. The visitors created a couple of chances early on and can cause PSG some problems if they can just find their stride again before half-time





31' GOOOOOAAAALLL!!! PSG 2-0 LILLE! Draxler slots the ball through for Di Maria, who takes a touch to set himself and clinically lifts it over Maignan to double the French champions' tally. Ruthless!



17' GOOOOAAALLLL!!! PSG 1-0 LILLE! Icardi maintains his impressive scoring run with the simplest of finishes. Gueye plays in a half-decent cross from the right that Fonte is unable to cut out, allowing Icardi to tap in from close range. 

 
 
16' PSG have had 72 per cent of the ball, but that does not tell the whole story. Lille are happy for the home team to knock the ball around in the middle of the park, though Meunier is now pushing higher up the pitch. 
 
15' Neymar is the latest player to be cynically fouled as Lille continue to break up play before PSG can build any sort of momentum. Galtier's gameplan is working well so far - Lille have been the better team with 15 minutes played.
