Paris Saint-Germain is now four points from its 11th French championship title, after having beaten dryly (5-0) and sent Ajaccio to Ligue 2 on Saturday, in a Parc des Princes emptied of its ultras but which whistled Messi , especially at the start of the game.
Despite the clear and flawless victory and a record title within reach, the atmosphere was without fervor at the Parc des Princes and in the Auteuil stand, deserted by the ultras on strike and in conflict with the management of the club.
Some supporters, however, were heard throughout the match to whistle Leo Messi, back from suspension because of his trip to Saudi Arabia not validated by the club.
After having already received some at the time of the announcement of the composition of the team, the Argentinian, quite discreet in the game, was targeted by a concert of whistles when he touched each ball and on his set pieces. . Much of the Parc des Princes also responded with applause.
The supporters were however able to witness a shower of goals from the Parisians, which had become rare, against the non-existent Corsicans, overwhelmed and now relegated after a year in Ligue 1.
The festival began with a breakthrough in the surface of Fabian Ruiz, very leggy, who scored from near the outside of the left (21st).
The foot on the ball, the Parisians took the break thanks to Achraf Hakimi, inside for several meetings but who found his legs on Saturday. The Moroccan recovered the ball and concluded easily after a fine save from Sollacaro on a strike from Mbappé (33rd).
The domination in the game and in the score did not prevent Christophe Galtier’s men from continuing to unfold in the second half.
While the Parisians were used to playing intermittently or purring too often, they continued to press on returning from the locker room, in front of Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, present in the stands.
On a scramble in the Ajaccian defense, Kylian Mbappé tripled the bet, thanks to a low shot, which passed under the gloves of the Corsican goalkeeper (47th).
– Mbappé returns to Lacazette –
The French striker, again leading the top scorers in L1 with 26 goals ahead of Lyonnais Alexandre Lacazette (24 goals) continued the festival: on an opening by Sergio Ramos, the ball returned to Mbappé who took it back from stolen. The N.7 has scored at least one goal in PSG’s last five matches (Lens, Angers, Lorient, Troyes and Ajaccio).
Captain Marquinhos finished the job after an action where Mbappé attempted a scarf kick. The center of the Brazilian was countered by Youssouf, before finishing in the Corsican goal (73rd).
The end of the match was marked by a slight moment of tension: Achraf Hakimi and Thomas Mangani, who jostled each other violently, each took a red card.
Thanks to this victory, PSG can now be champion of France in Auxerre, and end on a high note this endless season marred by disappointing results, lackluster play and repeated extra-sporting affairs.
