Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means that PSG remain 15 points clear at the top, while Angers remain in 14th.
PSG claim a comfortable 3-0 win as they continue to march towards the Ligue 1 title. They opened the scoring on 30 minutes when Mbappe rifled in from 20 yards, before Ramos extended the lead with a header on the stroke of half-time. Angers put up an admirable fight in the second half and thought they had a route back into the game when Ninga won a penalty, only for VAR to overturn the decision. PSG went on to kill the game off when Marquinhos steered in a fine header, before Michut was sent off late on for a poor tackle for the visitors. Nevertheless, PSG now move even closer to the title.

Marquinhos
Goal
77' Marquinhos finishes the game off! 3-0. Angers struggle to clear their lines and eventually Di Maria jinks past Bamba before whipping in a cross that Marquinhos heads into the top corner from eight yards!
76' Mbappe attempts an audacious 25-yard chip, but Mandrea has it covered as it floats over the bar.
74' Marseille are currently leading Nantes 3-2, which means that even if PSG win tonight, they won't be crowned champions just yet,

72' Two changes for PSG: the first sees Bernat head off for Mendes.
B. Mendy
N. Bentaleb
72' Bentaleb departs with Mendy taking his place.
P. Capelle
A. Fulgini
72' Angers also make two changes as Fulgini heads off for Capelle.
72' Angers are still fighting hard in this one, but a comeback is looking increasingly unlikely.
70' VAR overturns an Angers penalty! More frustration for the hosts. A neat move sets Ninga free inside the box, but just as he's about to shoot, Kehrer slides in from behind to poke the ball away! Initially, the referee awards a penalty, but after vociferous PSG complaints a VAR check overturns the call and a corner is awarded instead.
68' SAVE! PSG are getting close to a third goal. Mbappe collects a pass from Di Maria and skips past Traore before placing a 15-yard strike towards the bottom corner, only for Mandrea to tip it behind. The hosts clear the resulting corner.
66' CLOSE! Mbappe darts past Bamba before bending a curling 20-yard strike inches wide of the far post!
65' Ramos bundles over Ali-Cho, presenting Angers with a promising free-kick near the touchline. Fulgini finds Bentaleb on the edge of the box with the set-piece, but the midfielder hits his shot straight into Di Maria.
63' SAVE! Pereira curls a delightful throughball over the top of the defence to send Hakimi clean through! However, Mandrea closes down the angle and eventually smothers the wingback's shot from close range! The resulting corner amounts to nothing.
61' Fulgini attempts to slalom into the box but Marquinhos and Hakimi crowd him out before clearing.
59' Ounahi finds a little space to cross, but it sails over all the attackers and PSG clear.
57' PSG have managed the game well so far in the second half. They've retained control of the match, without offering Angers the opportunity to hit them on the counter.
55' Mbappe bursts in behind the defence and flashes a 20-yard strike narrowly wide, only to see the linesman raise his flag.
52' Di Maria swings in two more crosses, but this time Mandrea sails out to authoritatively claim the ball.
E. Ebimbe
Yellow Card
50' Ebimbe pulls back Fulgini near the centre-circle and earns himself a yellow card.
48' The hosts press high up the pitch to try and knock PSG off their rhythm, but Ramos expertly shuffles it over to Hakimi who breaks forward.
46' Angers kick off the second half.
It's an ominous scoreline for the hosts, even before you consider PSG's record when ahead in games. PSG are unbeaten in their last 23 French Ligue 1 matches when leading at half-time (W22, D1) dating back to 14th March 2021 against Nantes (L1-2).
PSG take a commanding 2-0 lead into the break. The visitors controlled this game in the opening stages and eventually got their reward when Mbappe rifled in a superb 20-yard strike. Angers almost responded quickly when Ali-Cho hit the post, but late in the half, Ramos rose highest to make it 2-0 and give PSG breathing room going into the interval.
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: ANGERS 0-2 PSG
Á. Di María
Assist
45' + 2' It was a precise cross from Di Maria to find the unmarked Ramos, but Angers will be furious with their defending there.
Sergio Ramos
Goal
45' + 2' And Ramos doubles the lead for PSG! 2-0. The visitors work a corner short, allowing Di Maria to swing in a cross that's met by Ramos who steers an eight-yard header into the bottom corner!
45' + 1' Three minutes of stoppage time are added on.
44' Angers have looked much brighter since PSG's goal, but half-time could well curb their momentum.
Juan Bernat
Yellow Card
42' Bernat is booked after a heavy challenge on Bamba near the touchline.
40' OFF THE POST! Angers almost find a way back into the game. A flowing move ends with Ali-Cho curling a precise 20-yard strike against the post before PSG clear their lines!
38' Angers have enjoyed a little more possession over the last five minutes, without causing any real problems.
36' Mbappe hobbles off with a thigh injury and it remains to be seen whether he'll be able to continue.
34' Mbappe is in a fine run of form and it's unsurprising that he's opened the scoring today. The attacker has seven goals and four assists in his last four games.
32' The visitors are knocking it around confidently near the halfway-line having gone in front through Mbappe's strike.
30' Well, PSG have the lead they needed now. It's going to be tough for Angers to recover in this game based on the opening 30 minutes.
A. Hakimi
Assist
28' It was an excellent pass from Hakimi to find Mbappe 30 yards from goal, but that move was all about the run and finish from Mbappe!
K. Mbappé
Goal
28' GOALLL! MBAPPE ! 1-0. PSG take the lead. The visitors sweep forward as Mbappe plays a one-two with Hakimi, before skipping past the challenge of Thomas and rifling a powerful 20-yard strike past Mandrea and into the bottom corner! That was a superb move.
27' MISS! Di Maria sends in another inviting outswinging corner and this time it's Marquinhos who nods an unmarked header over the bar!
25' Hakimi bundles over Doumbia before slipping Mbappe in behind, but the referee pulls play back for a foul on the Angers defender.
23' Ali-Cho's cross for Ninga doesn't get the required elevation and a rare Angers attack amounts to nothing.
21' Di Maria darts inside and searches for Ebimbe with a delicate chip over the defence, but it runs harmlessly through to Mandrea.
19' PSG have controlled the opening stages of this game without posing too many problems for Angers. They've had 71 per cent possession but just two shots.
17' Boufal's injury will certainly set Angers back - the attacker had looked incredibly lively in the opening stages.
15' After a long delay, the game resumes with PSG in possession.
C. Ninga
S. Boufal
14' Boufal is stretchered off with Ninga taking his place in attack.
12' Boufal falls while chasing down a throughball and clutches his leg in agony. This could well be a serious injury and the attacker won't be able to continue.
11' Boufal finds space again just outside the box, but he sweeps his shot comfortably wide of the far post.
9' CLOSE! Di Maria's 25-yard strike deflects behind, presenting PSG with a corner. Di Maria swings it in and Kehrer rises to thump a five-yard header at goal that Mandrea instinctively pushes away!
7' SAVE! Boufal jinks past Pereira before hammering a 25-yard strike that Navas acrobatically pushes up in the air! Ali-Cho gets to the rebound but plants a 10-yard header straight at the goalkeeper.
5' Mbappe sizes up a defender on the edge of the box, before rolling a 20-yard strike straight at Mandrea from a tight angle.
3' The visitors settle in with a long spell of defensive possession inside their own half.
1' PSG kick off the first half.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
Angers’ recent record against PSG doesn’t bode well. Angers have lost their last 11 Ligue 1 matches against PSG. In the history of the French league, only Nantes against PSG (14 between April 2007 and December 2018) and Strasbourg against Lyon (13 between November 2000 and August 2017) have had a longer losing streak against a single opponent.
PSG, on the other hand, make seven changes after beating Marseille. The main news is that both Lionel Messi and Neymar drop out of the squad entirely, through injury. They’re replaced in the starting line-up by Di Maria and Icardi.
Angers make one change after drawing with Nantes: Mendy is replaced by Ali-Cho.
SUBS: Xavi Simons, Nuno Mendes, El Chadaille Bitshiabu, Colin Dagba, Edouard Michut, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Idrissa Gueye, Djeidi Gassama.
PSG (3-5-2): Keylor Navas; Thilo Kehrer, Sergio Ramos, Marquinhos; Achraf Hakimi, Angel Di Maria, Danilo Pereira, Georginio Wijnaldum, Juan Bernat; Kylian Mbappe, Eric Ebimbe.
SUBS: Marin Jakolis, Rodrigue Casimir Ninga, Ali Kalla, Batista Mendy, Pierrick Capelle, Thomas Mangani, Waniss Taibi, Vincent Manceau, Danijel Petkovic.

PSG, meanwhile, could clinch the Ligue 1 title today. Following a 2-1 win over Marseille last time out, they’re 15 points clear at the top of the league. A win today and a defeat or draw for Marseille will see PSG win the title back from last year’s champions, Lille.
Hello and welcome to live commentary of this Ligue 1 fixture between Angers and PSG. This is an important game for the hosts as they look to secure their place in Ligue 1 next season. They sit in 14th place on 34 points, just five points above the relegation places with six matches to play. Following a 1-1 draw against Nantes last time out, they’re winless in three and will be looking to arrest that slump today.
