3 Talking Points from PSG's 2-1 win over Angers
1. Does anybody care about this season anymore?
You can't blame the players, the coach, and much less the fans for the current levels of interest in whatever PSG do these days and on a weekly basis.
After another boring game in which the Parisian team defeated Ligue 2-bound Angers 2-1 on the road, nobody seemed to care that much about what was going on inside the Angevin stadium.
Good for PSG, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi delivered the (first-half) goodies and that was all Paris Saint-Germain needed to bag three more points and, after Saturday's results, sit nine points clear of second-place Lens. With just six more games to play (18 points), PSG could lift the title as soon as in two weeks depending on how the matchdays develop.
And even if the next two weekends don't entirely go PSG way in terms of their results and those of their most pressing chasers (Lens and OM), then it'll be just a month of wait instead of two weeks. Nothing more, nothing less.
Friday's was another half-baked performance by the players of PSG. Galtier was also disinterested, waiting until Angers scored their lone goal already with more than 85 minutes gone to make any substantial changes other than introducing Marco Verratti midway through the second half to give him some playtime.
The fans weren't half interested in the game, let alone the second half in particular with PSG getting to it already two goals up on the scoreboard. And the newspapers, as I'm writing this on Sunday morning, have also stopped covering PSG on a daily basis. That's right, L'Equipe didn't even mention the team (not even under the rumors section, just imagine...) on their prime edition.
