Paris Saint-Germain, defending champions have scored a 1-0 triumph at Angers. This helped them to go top of Ligue 1. Lyon, title challengers can return to the top of the standings. But, it is only possible if they beat Metz,mid-table at home on Sunday.
PSG was without Mauricio Pochettino, their coach for the clash with Angers. It is because he was tested positive for the coronavirus. In his absence, his two assistants took charge.
However, it was a scrappy performance. PSG fans watching at home will forget it quickly. With 20 minutes left, Layvin Kurzawa, the defender, volleyed home from just inside the penalty area. But his goal had a touch of fortune. It was across from the right that hit an Angers defender. Further, it looped up invitingly. Angers contained PSG in midfield comfortably. But they lacked a cutting edge going forward.
