However, Nice pulled one back before the end of the first half with a goal from Gaetan Laborde in the 37th minute, leaving the score at 2-1 at halftime.

In the second half, PSG showcased their superiority, sealing the match with a goal from Lucas Belardo in the 60th minute, marking his goal-scoring debut as a Brazilian central defender for Paris Saint-Germain.
