While Marseillais kept the team, the teammates of Florian Thauvin were blown out at worst just before half-hour. On a recovery and an impressive transition game, the Parisian mistake was made thanks to Mbappé, well served by Di Maria. Sounds, Marseillais reacted from the beginning of the second period to a goal by Valère Germain. A hope quickly wiped out by the talent Di Maria. The Argentine, at a completely closed angle, rolled his shot from the left and deceived Mandanda to restore the benefit to the Parisians. The rest was seriously complicated for the Olympians with the expulsion of Mandanda for a hand out of the box. Unfortunately, Di Maria tried the free kick over thirty meters and found the net. In a late scramble match, Paris could have destroyed the add-on, but Pelé issued the Mbappé penalty. With this result, Paris is even closer to the title of champion in France, while Marseille is away from the Champions League.
