PSG move up to second in Ligue 1 as Neymar scored twice

Paris Saint-Germain made it four wins on the bounce in Ligue 1 with a commanding victory over Angers at the Parc des Princes.

Alessandro Florenzi, Julian Draxler, Idrissa Gana Gueye and Kylian Mbappe shared the other goals as PSG claimed a fourth successive win while Ismael Traore headed one back for Angers.

PSG, who lost their opening two games of the season, jumped to second in the table with 12 points from six matches, one behind leaders Rennes.

Alessandro Florenzi opened the scoring in the seventh minute with a beautiful first goal for the club before the brace from PSG’s Brazil star moved them out of sight early in the second half.

The visitors inevitably paid the price when Mbappe slipped between two defenders and laid the ball back to Neymar who fired a left-foot shot into the roof of the net in the 36th minute.

The Brazilian drilled home a loose ball for the third two minutes after the break and, although Traore pulled one back with a far post header, it was only brief respite for Angers.

Draxler and Gueye scored with deflected shots before Mbappe turned in the sixth with six minutes remaining.

PSG has won 4 games in a row in the league. PSG had a bad start to the league after losing two games at the start of the season.

Neymar completed the two-match ban and scored the first goal after returning to the ground.

Ligue 1 leader Rennes is unbeaten in 5 games and is at the top of the league with 13 points. PSG is in the second position of the league with 12 points.
