Second-half goals from Marquinhos and Angel Di Maria led to a come-from-behind win for Paris Saint-Germain over defending champions Lille on Friday. The 2-1 win means PSG now lead the Ligue 1 table by 10 points.

 Di Maria set up the equalizer for PSG and then went on to net the winner.

Canadian striker Jonathan David drew first blood in the game for Lille with a first-time effort in the 31st minute. Already the top scorer in the French league this season, David raised his tally to eight goals. But it was the Di Maria show in the second half.

The Argentine provided a clipped pass for Marquinhos, who volleyed home from six yards in the 74th minute of the game. Di Maria then won PSG the game by burying the ball into the bottom corner in the 88th minute.

The defending champions were dominant in the first half. Lille had three big scoring chances whereas PSG could manage just one.

The visitors threatened in the opening minute by hitting PSG on the fast break. Jonathan Ikone outpaced Presnel Kimpembe to make a low cross for Burak Yilmaz, whose effort was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma. Then Yilmaz found Ikone in the 14th minute, but the Lille winger missed the target from 12 yards as he was put off by Thilo Kehrer.

Lionel Messi had been doubtful because of a small muscle problem but still started the game for PSG. However, Messi struggled in the role of a false nine, volleying wide after a cross from Di Maria in the 30th minute. He was replaced by Mauro Icardi at halftime.

The Parisians’ only good chance in the first half resulted from intricate passing. Georginio Wijnaldum fed Di Maria, who curled a shot wide from a tight angle in the 40th minute.

With Lille exploiting the space behind the PSG fullbacks, coach Mauricio Pochettino made a tactical switch and replaced Kehrer and Juan Bernat with Colin Dagba and Nuno Mendes in the 65th minute.

Di Maria was PSG’s biggest threat throughout, and forced goalkeeper Ivo Grbic to parry his long-range strike in the 59th minute. The Argentine then crossed for Icardi, who headed over the bar in the 73rd minute. But Di Maria did not relent as he set up Marquinhos for the equalizer a minute later.

PSG finished stronger and Neymar played Icardi clean through on goal in the 85th, but Grbic saved with his leg. Neymar again showed his deft touch when collecting Di Maria’s pass in the area and controlling it with one foot before playing it back in the path of the Argentine, who scored with a low shot to preserve PSG’s perfect record at home. The Parisians have won all their home games at Parc des Princes in all competitions this season.

PSG missed the suspended Achraf Hakimi and Marco Verratti, the injured Sergio Ramos and Leandro Paredes and an infected Kylian Mbappe.
