Highlights: Nice 0-3 PSG

By on 20th September 2020

Paris Saint-Germain have their 2020-21 French Ligue 1 season up and running now with their best performance of the season on Sunday afternoon with a 3-0 thrashing of Nice at the Allianz Riviera Stadium.

The defending champions had taken just three points from their first three games courtesy of Julian Draxler’s 93rd minute winner at Metz in their previous outing.

Kylian Mbappe was making his first appearance since the Champions League final last month and opened the scoring a penalty seven minutes before half-time after winning the spot kick himself.

Keylor Navas denied Rony Lopes with a fine save shortly before half-time.

PSG doubled their lead in first half stoppage time when Kylian Mbappe ran at the Nice defence before seeing his shot parried by goalkeeper Walter Benitez into the path of Angel Di Maria. The Argentine rolled the ball home for 2-0.

The third goal for the visitors came through Marquinhos midway through the second half when the captain met Di Maria’s free kick at the near post to flick past Benitez. The goalkeeper had earlier denied Mauro Icardi one-on-one.
