Long led, the Parisian players overthrew the Lille (2-1), Friday night at home as part of the 12th day of Ligue 1.
Mbappé package, Messi out of the way, the PSG relied on his two other strong links in attack to defeat the Losc. Long abused by much sharper French champions in many areas and rewarded by David’s goal (0-1, 31e), Parisians get by almost miraculously but not without logic.
Lille accused the blow physically from the hour mark after having thought to double the bet at the start of the second period. Donnarumma was once again giant on this tap against David before seeing Yilmaz miss the frame closely (47e). After this double opportunity, Gourvennec’s men began to dive and lose their lucidity.

Neymar saw his shot deflected (69e), Icardi missed the frame with a header (73e) but Marquinhos, a minute later, took advantage of a big marking error to equalize (1-1, 74th). Paris ended with much more freshness, like Neymar mounted in physical power and more and more dangerous as the minutes go by.
The Brazilian served in the Di Maria race to liberate, with a strike from the left, the Parc des Princes (2-1, 88e). The Argentinian was rewarded after securing both PSG chances in the first period (23e, 40e).

Without Kylian Mbappé, and with a great desire, the Parisians have shown that they can get by, even if the Lille regrets will be immense.
