NICE IN POLE AS TON-UP CAVANI KEEPS PSG IN HUNT
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN hotshot Edinson Cavani (caricature) bagged his 100th goal for the club in a 2-0 win over Angers yesterday to keep the reigning Ligue 1 champions on the heels of leaders Nice.
Cavani scored from the spot, adding to Thiago Silva’s opener to round off a win for the Parisians, who trail Nice by a solitary point after the Cote d’Azur t able- t oppers handed Guingamp a first home defeat.
“It was a very important match, for the three points, for the table because we were at home and it was important to be strong for the fans,” said PSG coach Unai Emery.
“Against a very defensively compact team, we put in a solid performance.”
Moroccan Younes Belhanda bagged the only goal for Nice, this season’s surprise package, in the fifth minute with a sumptuous strike from the edge of the box.
