Ten-Man PSG Extend Ligue 1 Lead with Victory Over Marseille

In a high-stakes clash, ten-man Paris St-Germain (PSG) asserted their dominance with a crucial 2-0 win over Marseille, extending their lead at the top of Ligue 1 by 12 points.

The breakthrough came in the 52nd minute when Vitinha unleashed a precise low strike past Marseille goalkeeper Pau Lopez, giving PSG the lead at the Stade Velodrome.

Substitute Goncalo Ramos sealed the victory for PSG in the latter stages of the game, effectively ending Marseille’s impressive 19-game unbeaten home run.

Despite being reduced to ten men early in the match after defender Lucas Beraldo received a red card for a foul on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, PSG demonstrated resilience and tactical prowess to secure the win.

Marseille thought they had equalized just before the hour mark through Jordan Veretout, only for the goal to be disallowed for offside as Luis Henrique was judged to be obstructing PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma’s view.

PSG captain Kylian Mbappe, who is set to depart for Real Madrid in the summer, was substituted in the 63rd minute, leaving his mark on the match before his departure.

With this victory, the reigning champions need just 10 points from their remaining seven games to clinch another Ligue 1 title, reaffirming their status as the dominant force in French football.
