Marseille’s victory with 1-0 in Saturday’s match against Lorient made it impossible for PSG to secure the league title on Sunday. Carlos Ancelotti’s men, however, had more reasons to win than the hunt for three points. Evian threw PSG out of the French Cup recently.
PSG won the game against Evian with 1-0 after goal from Javier Pastore – but the odd goal win was not without controversy.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic had several good chances to score, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic stays at 27 league goals despite a giant chance two meters from the goal. In the 62nd minute the ball tumbled down in front of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s feet. But although the keeper was down on his knees Zlatan Ibrahimovic put the ball over the bar.
PSG failed to get a second goal. Instead it was nerve in the final minutes. Marco Verratti was sent off with ten minutes left and got a good scolding by Carlo Ancelotti. In stoppage time came the next penalty for the visitors. David Beckham got the red card. Beckham stomped firmly in the grass when he would cover the ball, but was not close to hitting his opponent. The referee made a bad call and gave David Beckham the red card.
PSG held off, but even after the final whistle, there was scrimmage between many players. PSG’s goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu and Evian sSaber Khlifa got red cards after the scuffle.
With four rounds remaining Paris Saint-Germain leads the league nine points ahead of Marseille. It looks like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and PSG will bring the gold to Paris this year after the PSG vs Evian 1-0 game.
