PARIS: Paris St Germain’s new recruits continued their smooth integration as Pablo Sarabia scored one goal and set up two more in a 4-0 Ligue 1 home win over Angers on Saturday.
Sarabia was the first on target at the Parc des Princes with Mauro Icardi and Idrissa Gueye, who also joined PSG during the close season, adding goals to put Thomas Tuchel’s side on 21 points from nine games, two clear of second-placed Nantes.
Neymar produced a convincing display, freeing up space for his new team mates to shine in the absence of the injured Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, and the Brazilian forward wrapped it up in the final minute with a deserved goal.
Angel Di Maria did not start as coach Tuchel kept him on the bench until the closing stages but PSG were quickly into action.
Sarabia burst into the area, cut inside and beat Ludovic Butelle with a low shot to put the hosts ahead after 13 minutes.
Angers had a good opportunity but Keylor Navas pushed away Baptiste Santamaria’s fierce long-range strike and eight minutes from the break Icardi whipped the ball into the roof of the net from a fine Sarabia pass for his first goal in Ligue 1.
