PSG 4-0 Reims: Neymar and Mbappe strike to keep hopes of retaining Ligue 1 title alive and cut Lille’s lead at the top to one point with one game left

  1. PSG seal a commanding 4-0 win over Reims as they take the Ligue 1 title race into the final matchday.

PSG cruised to a routine victory, Lille, who have 80 points, were held to a goalless draw by mid-table Saint-Etienne and now need a win at Angers in the final round to guarantee them a first title since 2011.

Monaco stayed third on 77 points, one win away from guaranteeing a Champions League spot, as goals by Wissam Ben Yedder and Aleksandr Golovin earned them a 2-1 home victory against Stade Rennais.

Reims made it difficult for themselves early on, as Abdelhamid was sent off for handling Mbappe’s shot as it trickled towards goal.

Neymar stepped up and made it 1-0 from the spot and the hosts didn’t look back.

Mbappe made it two shortly after, following a mistake from Foket, before Marquinhos headed in to make it 3-0 in the second half.

Kean wrapped up the game late on when he fired a crisp, low effort in from 12 yards to punctuate a handsome victory for PSG.

We saw that today, Liverpool’s keeper (Alisson Becker) scored a last-minute goal, so anything is still possible,’ said PSG midfielder Ander Herrera.

Lille lacked inspiration against a sturdy St Etienne side and missed out on securing a victory that would have allowed them to head into the final round needing only a draw when Yusuf Yazici’s free kick crashed onto the far post in the last minute.

Crucially, Lille could only draw against Saint-Etienne today. That – combined with PSG’s win – means that PSG move within one point of the leaders heading into the final game. Reims, meanwhile, remain 13th.
