Before the last matchday, the two teams are separated by only one point. Paris then has to compete in relegation candidate Stade Brest, Lille travels to SCO Angers, who are already safe in relegation.
Paris played against Reims in the majority from the 10th minute. Defender Yunis Abdelhamid saw red after clearing the ball with his hand. Neymar (13th) converted the penalty, a little later the second superstar also met: Kylian Mbappe (24th) benefited from a dropout in the guest defense. Marquinhos (68th) and Moise Kean (89th) made the final score.
