Angers 0-5 PSG: Mbappe & Cavani both score a brace to make sure no Neymar is no worry

Paris Saint-Germain transform their inner anger into creativity as they beat Angers 5-0 thanks to goals from Mbappe, Cavani and Draxler.

The late equaliser from Strasbourg last weekend marked Angers’ seventh draw in 11 league games. Stephane Moulin’s side have only won twice in the league so far this season but are still sitting relatively comfortable in mid-table.

PSG are flying high and seem unstoppable so far this season. Unai Emery however, has decided to not risk forward Neymar, who picked up a knock in their 5-0 midweek win over Anderlecht.

MATCH EVENTS:

5′ GOAL! Angers 0-1 PSG (Mbappe!)

First real opportunity created and Kylian Mbappe puts it into the back of the net! A brilliantly weighted cross from the right is met by Mbappe at the front post.

He catches it first time with a low volley that bounces beyond Mathieu Michel and into the far left corner. Brilliantly taken goal by the French striker.

11′ Brilliant work by Karl Toko Ekambi on the left wing to find space beyond two defenders and get his cross away.

It finds Vincent Manceau it aces of space in the centre of the PSG box but his volley is wild and high over the bar! Angers could be left to rue such a glorious opportunity.

14′ GOAL! Angers 0-2 PSG (Draxler)

Dani Alves the creator again as he slots in a brilliant pass into the centre of the box, which Julian Draxler runs onto and chips it first time over the oncoming Michel and into the left corner of the goal.

Top quality play from the away side and they look untouchable at the moment.

30′ GOAL! Angers 0-3 PSG (Cavani!)

The PSG break is straight to Mbappe who bursts down the right wing. He only has one defender to beat but he opts to heel flick the ball into the path of Edinson Cavani in the right of the box, who fires it first time into the right of the goal. 

It had been coming and Cavani becomes only the second player after Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score 100 Ligue 1 goals for PSG.

52′ Ekambi does well to create space for himself outside the PSG box but Areola gets down well to prevent his low curling effort finding the back of the net.

58′ Good build up play again from Angers, this time Manceau opts to pull the ball back from the right wing into the path of Fulgini instead of crossing. 

60′ GOAL! Angers 0-4 PSG (Cavani again!)

Edinson Cavani gets his second and that should kill any hope Angers had of getting back into this game. 

Draxler plays Cavani into acres of space down the right wing and the Uruguayan striker powers his way towards the box before unleashing an unstoppable shot into the right of the net. Great work from Cavani and far too much power on it for Michel to do anything about it.

84′ GOAL! Angers 0-5 PSG (Mbappe)

After a period of messy football the break is suddenly on for PSG! Mbappe shows great workrate and acceleration to power down the centre of the pitch. 

He plays it out wide to Lucas before latching onto the return pass, taking it around Michel and slotting into the bottom left of the goal. Romain Thomas slid in to try and prevent the goal but he could only help it find the corner.
