The Swedish striker stole the pre-match headlines on the return to his first club and his home down—and his ostentatious gesture to book out the city’s main square and erect a big screen for those who didn’t have tickets to the game.
However, it was Adrien Rabiot who made the crucial intervention early on, heading home in the third minute after a sublime cross from Gregory van der Wiel.
Rabiot has found himself frustrated in recent times due to a perceived lack of first-team opportunities at the Parc des Princes. Despite his talent—the youngster has been nominated for the Golden Boy award—Rabiot has struggled to assert himself above the likes of Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi and Thiago Motta.
However, the elegant midfielder, who has been heavily like with a move to the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, demonstrated his class once again to give PSG the lead.
Angel Di Maria made it 2-0 on 14 minutes following an assist from Matuidi.
