Ligue 1 Roundup: Paris St-Germain moves to the top

125

Layvin Kurzawa scored a second-half goal as a lacklustre Paris St-Germain moved top of the Ligue 1 table with a 1-0 victory at Angers. Kurzawa volleyed home for his first goal of the season, allowing PSG to move on to 42 points from 20 games, two ahead of Lyon, who host Metz on Sunday. Lille, who host Reims on Sunday, are third on 39 points.

Marseille remained sixth on 32 points from 18 matches after slumping to an embarrassing 2-1 home defeat against third from bottom Nîmes as Niclas Eliasson netted a second-half double.

In Angers, PSG were without their coach, Mauricio Pochettino, who has been isolating since Friday after testing positive for Covid-19. Angers were the most dangerous side early on while Kylian Mbappé, who has not scored in his last four competitive games, struggled. PSG failed to muster a shot on target in the first half.

The visitors were equally unimpressive after the interval but Kurzawa came to their rescue with a volley from Alessandro Florenzi’s cross in the 70th minute.
