For matchday 26 of Ligue 1, Paris Saint-Germain welcomed Bordeaux at Parc des Princes. The match was very busy and, after seven goals and one comeback, the hosts left the pitch with a 4-3 victory. Edinson Cavani, Marquinhos, with two goals, and Kylian Mbappe scored for the home side. Hwang Ui-Jo, Pablo, and Ruben Pardo scored for the visitors.
The week was difficult to PSG’s players. After losing in the Champions League, they still had to deal with a lot from the press, and even their manager, after the birthday party from Cavani, Icardi, and Di Maria. Of course, the complaints weren’t wrong. And because of that, the result had to be good. Things, however, didn’t start well, once Bordeaux broke the deadlock at the 18th minute, with Hwang Ui-Jo.
The equalizer didn’t take much to happen. At the 25th minute, Di Maria assisted Cavani and the Uruguayan put the ball into the back of the net.
PSG’s comeback came at the beginning of the injury time when the ball struck Marquinhos on the shoulder and traveled past Costil into the back of the net. VAR obviously checked the play and confirmed the goal.
Before the end of the first half, Bordeaux put the scoring leveled once again, after a mistake from Rico. The keeper tried to clear the ball downfield but ended up booting it off the defender, making the ball fly into the back of the net.
In the second half, more three goals happened. PSG’s third came again with Marquinhos, who took advantage of a rebound to push the ball past the goalkeeper at the 63rd minute. Six minutes later, Paris got their fourth goal with Mbappe. The Frenchman made a one-two play with Cavani and slotted a strike into an empty net.
The visitors still got another goal, at the 83rd minute, with a beautiful goal from Ruben Pardo. Even though it brought a small headache to Tuchel, especially after Neymar’s second yellow card, it was not enough to take the victory away from the hosts.
PSG remain in the first place, increasing their difference to the second after Marseille’s defeat. They are now 13 points ahead. Bordeaux is in the 12th position, with 35 points.
