Ligue 1: Without Neymar - Paris Saint-Germain wins against Toulouse

French football champion Paris Saint-Germain paid dearly for a 4-0 (0-0) home victory against Toulouse. Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappé were injured in Ligue 1's matchday, and Neymar was not in the squad again, missing Julian Draxler and Thilo Kehrer.

The player of the game was then one who is otherwise rather in the shadow of the stars: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, known from many years in the Bundesliga. Coach Thomas Tuchel had come in after 14 minutes for Cavani, who was injured on the hip - and that was to pay off: Choupo-Moting scored the 50th-minute 1-0, also on Mathieu Gonvalves 'own-goal (55') involved. With his second goal to 3: 0 (75th) made Choupo-Moting for the preliminary decision. Center-back Marquinhos (83 ') scored the final goal of the evening.

The victory for PSG could have been even higher, but Angel di Maria missed a penalty (69.). At this point, Mbappé was already out of the field. In his 100th league game, the 20-year-old was an asset in Tuchel's team at half-time, but in the 66th minute, the world champion with an injury in the left thigh of the field.

Again whirl around Neymar

In the squad of Paris, however, was missing again a prominent name: Neymar. Although he was fit, coach Tuchel had said the day before the game, but he could only play if "the situation between the club and him is clarified." And that was obviously not the matchday.

About Neymar had last been able to read that he wanted to leave PSG and is in his former club FC Barcelona and Real Madrid in conversation. The French "L'Équipe" had announced a few days ago that Real has already submitted an offer to the French: 100 million euros transfer fee, in addition to the real players Gareth Bale, goalkeeper Keylor Navas and James Rodríguez. PSG, it was said, but refused.
