Danilo Pereira (POR) scored at 32 ‘and Ángel Di María (ARG) at 47’, in a free kick that looked for someone to finish off, bounced inside the area and directly from the rebound entered the goal.
The discount goal was a low shot from outside the area by Islam Slimani (DZA), at 62 ‘.
Neymar (BRA) was on the bench but replaced Mbappé at 70 ‘, when Paris continued to dominate the game.
Then came the 4-2, which was after a filtered pass that Maxwel Cornet (CIV) put in. Lille kept coming and stinging but a great performance by Anthony Lopes (POR) prevented more goals.
