PSG players still in title race with Lille in Ligue 1
Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were on target as Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) kept alive their hopes of retaining the Ligue 1 title with a 4-0 victory over Reims on Sunday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will go into next weekend’s final round of the season against Brest one point behind leaders Lille, who were held to a 0-0 draw by Saint-Etienne.
PSG will only get their hands on the title if they better the result Lille get against Angers next weekend, needing Christophe Galtier’s team to slip up.
Neymar opened the scoring early on with a penalty kick after Yunis Abdelhamid had been dismissed for handling an Mbappe shot.
World Cup winner Mbappe, Marquinhos and Moise Kean then wrapped up the most routine of victories.
Any hopes Reims had of securing back-to-back wins at the Parc des Princes were all but extinguished in the 13th minute.
Abdelhamid received his marching orders for handling Mbappe’s goalbound effort, with Neymar non-challantly slotting home his ninth league goal of the campaign from the resulting penalty kick.
