Mbappé at the oven and at the mill

Kylian Mbappé will have, by far, been the most dangerous Parisian on Friday night against Angers (2-1), the only one to take depth and to make differences on the front of the attack. Without Lionel Messi, Neymar and other Angel Di Maria, who played with their respective selection Thursday night in South America, all the responsibilities were on his shoulders. He was rewarded for his efforts with an assist to Danilo (69th) and finally this penalty synonymous with victory at the end of the game (87th). We are entitled to expect more from him, it's true. More accuracy, more efficiency. Above all, we are entitled to expect more from our teammates. Friday night at the Parc des Princes, it was Kylian Mbappé and the others. Too lonely.

Fulgini-Boufal, winning ticket

Less prominent in the second half, like the rest of their team, Angevins Angelo Fulgini and Sofiane Boufal did a lot of misery to their Parisian hosts.

It is on a powerful cross from the second that the first came to deceive Gianluigi Donnarumma (36th).

Not their first feat of arms in this meeting.

Boufal used his technique to shine and Fulgini was, several times, dangerous in front of goal.

More generally, it is all the discipline and the Angevin envy that must be congratulated in this match.

Efforts that would undoubtedly have deserved a point, even if the players of Gerald Baticle suffered more after the rest against more incisive Parisians.


Diallo-Dagba, Paris without its wings

The Angevin goal perfectly sums up one of the Parisian weaknesses in this meeting, with Abdou Diallo who leaves too much freedom for Sofiane Boufal to center and Colin Cagba, who lacks responsiveness and vision to come to the marking of Angelo Fulgini. 14.3% of duels won, each. In defense of Diallo, this role of piston is not his cup of tea, even if he is able to make big performances at the left-back position, in a more defensive register. And to that of Dagba, it was his return to competition, he who had not played since the start of the season and appeared on the bench only twice. Still, in this match, faced with this type of opposition, Paris would have needed breadth and options on the sides.We had to wait for the entries of the returning Juan Bernat (63rd) and Achraf Hakimi (72nd) to have some ...

Rafinha did not score any points

Not being a first option in Mauricio Pochettino's mind, far from it, Rafinha should not miss the opportunity to make an impression when he plays.

The least we can say is that the Brazilian did not score a point in this meeting.

Never in the right tempo, the former Barcelona was also clumsy in front of goal despite two good chances.

Replaced in the 63rd by Gini Wijnaldum.
