The Rémois had come to play, they sometimes bothered PSG, but their goodwill did not resist Parisian accuracy, Sunday January 23, at the Parc des Princes, during the 22nd day of Ligue 1. PSG was imposed 4-0, thanks to a double from Marco Verratti and a goal from Sergio Ramos, the Spaniard’s first in Parisian colours, before Danilo Pereira completed the success of the capital club.
The odds for Marco Verratti’s brace must have been damn high before the match, and the Italian himself looked surprised to open the scoring and then score the 3-0 goal on Sunday. Often mocked for not trying his luck enough, the “Little Owl” shook the net for the first time since May 2017 and scored the first double of his career.
While Reims had been putting pressure on PSG so far in the first half, with high pressing but without realizing their chances, it was he who punished the Reims for their lack of efficiency, allowing the Parisians to take the advantage. just before the break.

Upon returning from the locker room, the desire for Reims was no longer enough to contain the technical superiority of PSG and Oscar Garcia’s men gradually retreated and suffered attacks from Paris. And since it was an evening of firsts, Sergio Ramos scored his first goal in the Parisian jersey, for his first tenure at the Parc des Princes, in two stages from a corner.
To complete the evening, PSG recorded the return of Lionel Messi, who entered shortly after the hour mark. The Argentinian made the Rémois suffer with his balls at the foot and delivered a decisive pass for Verratti. Danilo Pereira completed the Parisian success.
The negative spiral continues for Stade de Reims, which remains on two draws and two defeats in the Championship. On the contrary, PSG continues and remains leader with eleven points ahead.
