Giovani LO CELSO and Angel DI MARIA both scored (twice) in PSG’s impressive 7-1 win over Monaco which won them the league title. Last year saw PSG dethroned of the Ligue 1 crown and they came back with a vengeance. Giovani LO CELSO scored the opening goal of the match after Dani ALVES slid in the ball and LO CELSO passed it into the net.
Angel DI MARIA’s first goal was very reminiscent of the gold medal winning goal he scored for Argentina vs. Nigeria at the 2008 Olympics. One on one with the goalkeeper, DI MARIA chipped the ball over the goalkeeper to make it 3-0 for PSG.
LO CELSO made it 4-0 with a fantastic outside of the foot cross by Javier PASTORE as the former Rosario Central man headed the ball in. Goal number five came from another Javier PASTORE assist, this time a slide ball in to DI MARIA to make it 5-1 and seal the league title.
Congratulations to the Argentinians (Giovani LO CELSO, Angel DI MARIA and Javier PASTORE) on winning Ligue 1 with PSG.
Moving over to Spain, Angel CORREA (who was recently called-up to the Argentina squad) scored for Atletico Madrid in their 3-0 win against Levante. While a second place finish in La Liga is still on the table for CORREA and Diego SIMEONE’s men as well as a Europa League semi-final spot, CORREA’s spot in the Argentina team is far from secured. Now on nine goals for the season, CORREA is far from having a guaranteed spot for Argentina’s World Cup squad.
Over to Russia, former River Plate man Sebastian DRIUSSI scored the only goal for Zenit St. Petersburg in their 1-0 win vs. Anzhi Makachkala.
