Commentary

PSG have used 26 different players in Ligue 1 2020/21, at least three more than any other team. In contrast, only Lille (18) have used less players than Reims in the top-flight this season (19).
That concludes our coverage of the Ligue 1 match between Reims and PSG! We hope you enjoyed it!
Reims have a difficult test lined up next when they travel to face Rennes on Sunday. PSG host Angers on Friday.
Reims were simply second-best on the day as PSG were fully deserving of the three points - emerging with a comfortable 2-0 victory. Neymar and Mbappe were at their best creatively, but a lack of incision in front of goal - aside from Icardi, who netted twice - left many opportunities begging. Reims offered little aside from Dia sending a shot against the post in the second half and failed to consistently trouble Navas. Their winless streak continues, to the disappointment of manager David Guion.
90' + 7' FULL-TIME: REIMS 0-2 PSG. 
90' + 6' After a lengthy build-up, Sarabia looks to make amends for his earlier miss - but again he sends his shot over the crossbar. 
90' + 5' Reims' eventual free-kick is a poor one as the ball bounces straight through to Navas. 
Marquinhos
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Marquinhos brings Dia down in midfield, earning PSG's captain a yellow card. 
90' + 2' Neymar scoops his effort up and over the wall, but it misses by inches - forcing the goalkeeper into a dive nonetheless. 
90' + 1' Neymar is taken down just outside the 18-yard box by Chavalerin, giving PSG a late set-piece.
89' The fourth official indicates five minutes will be added to the end of the match for stoppages. 
87' OVER! A cross into the box falls to the foot of Sarabia, whose half-volley is blazed over the crossbar.
A. Diallo
P. Kimpembe
85' Diallo will see out the final five minutes, with Kimpembe earning his early break. 
84' Since the beginning of the last season, Verratti is the only player with 100+ touches per game in the Top 5 European leagues (102.7 – min. 2 games played). PSG’s midfielder tallies 2362 touches in 23 Ligue 1 games in this period, more than any other player.
82' WHAT A MISS FROM MBAPPE! After pouring forward, Reims are caught on the counter-attack, but Sarabia’s fantastic pass into the penalty area for his team-mate is met by a wayward side-foot.
F. Hornby
Moreto Cassamã
81' Hornby is on to add some late attacking threat as Cassama is removed. 
80' Dia attempts to dribble through the PSG defence on the edge of the penalty area, but Bakker and Kimpembe combine to dispel the danger. 
K. Ruiz-Atil
Á. Di María
78' More substitutions for PSG as Di Maria is withdrawn from action with just over 10 minutes remaining. Ruiz-Atil is his replacement.
Pablo Sarabia
M. Icardi
78' Icardi’s match is over after a two-goal performance. Sarabia gets to play out the remainder of the match.
77' Neymar dribbles away from pressure with typical style and hits a delightful pass all the way to the left wing for Mbappe. After having a touch himself, he fires a pass towards the penalty area which is blocked out for a throw. 
75' The ensuing free-kick from the left is swung into the danger area, but the eventual header is dragged well-wide of the goal.
T. Foket
Yellow Card
73' Foket is lucky to escape with just a yellow as an incisive pass from Neymar sets Mbappe away inside Reims’ half, but the defender comes across and brings down the forward.
72' Zeneli has a chance to make something happen for his side, but a beautiful sliding challenge from Verratti wins his side the ball with ease.
70' PSG are looking for more as they camp nine men in Reims’ half, searching for a third. The substitutions have not helped the hosts thus far, as they’ve been unable to comfortably exit their side of the pitch.
M. Verratti
L. Paredes
68' Paredes is removed as well with just over 20 minutes remaining, as Verratti is sent on in his place. 
Ander Herrera
J. Draxler
68' PSG make changes after going two-goals up as Herrera replaces Draxler. 
D. Kutesa
E. Toure
65' The hosts go with a third alteration as well as Toure is out for Kutesa.
A. Zeneli
N. Mbuku
65' Mbuku is replaced by Zeneli in Reims’ second change.
K. Mbappé
Assist
62' Mbappe is credited with the assist after an unselfish ball across the face of goal. 
M. Icardi
Goal
62' GOAL! PSG DOUBLE THE ADVANTAGE! It was always coming, but Icardi seals the two-goal lead as a delightful passing move between Di Maria and Mbappe gets the France international unmarked in the penalty area. A simple pass across the face of goal gets it to Icardi, who dispatches dutifully. 2-0!
61' SO CLOSE FROM NEYMAR! After Dia hits the post from a curler at one end, PSG go the other way with Mbappe, who serves a perfect pass across the face of goal 10 yards out, but Neymar's backheel effort misses the far post narrowly!
60' PSG have the highest possession percentage in Ligue 1 2020/21 (66.3%), whilst opponents Reims have the lowest (39.4%).
B. Dia
A. Donis
58' Donis is replaced by Dia with just over an hour left to play,
57' Play is stopped as Toure and Neymar are both on the ground following a collision in midfield. The PSG forward is furious as he clutches the side of his head, though it doesn’t appear there was any malice in the challenge from the Reims forward.
55' A cross comes in from Donis, but there’s nobody in the PSG penalty area to get on the end of the bouncing ball as Navas comes across.
53' The set-piece is poor as PSG are able to easily defend it and start another attack through Navas. 
52' The referee pulls back play much to the dismay of Mbuku, who felt he was through on-goal after beating Marquinhos. The defender had grabbed the kit of the winger - giving Reims a free-kick. 
J. Draxler
Yellow Card
51' Yellow Card Julian Draxler
50' Paredes finds the ball at his foot after a wayward PSG cross and opts to blast it from distance - but Rajkovic catches it well. 
48' Reims are on the attack straight away, but they're unble to break into the PSG penalty area as the loose ball is funnelled back to Navas. 
46' The referee blows his whistle and the second half is underway with PSG leading Reims 1-0!
A wealth of experience on the bench for PSG will certainly be a daunting task in the second period for Reims, as Verratti and Herrera are both available to win the ball in midfield and hold the lead. The hosts will need to hope for more from their promising wingers in order to get a foothold in the match - or bring striker Sierhuis from the substitute’s list.
The first half comes to a close with PSG dominating proceedings, definitely deserving of their lead. Mbappe, Neymar and Di Maria have all been at their creative best, but a failure to capitalise on the opportunities crafted have doomed PSG to a single goal. Reims have offered little going forward, though Mbuku has looked lively down the left. 
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: Reims 0-1 PSG. 
44' Reims have lost their last three Ligue 1 games (0-1 v Lille, 0-1 v Angers and 1-2 v Metz), as many as in their previous 17 (W5 D9).
42' Mbuku finds space on the left and attempts to beat Navas from distance, but the goalkeeper is more than capable of dealing with the shot. 
40' Di Maria finds Draxler with a pass in a dangerous position, but Cassama tracks back to put it out for a corner. 
37' CLOSE! Neymar steps over a free-kick and curls it to the left, missing the corner of the goal by inches!
Moreto Cassamã
Yellow Card
35' Neymar tries to break after a counter-attack and gets held up in midfield by Cassama. It's a yellow card for the Reims player. 
31' Not for the first time, the home side are unhappy with a decision going against them. It has been a stop-start period in the game.
28' It's been all PSG in the first half, with their opponents offering disappointingly little going forward. Neymar, Mbappe and Di Maria have all been creative, creating chances almost at will. 
25' Di Maria is once again involved as he plays a lovely pass through towards goal for Icardi - but the striker fails to beat Abdelhamid, who waited in front of goal to reject the effort. 
22' Di Maria takes a speculative effort from more than 20 metres out as he attempts to beat Rajkovic and double the advantage, but it's lacking the necessary precision to trouble the goalkeeper. 
20' Neymar attempts to dribble Cassama, who refuses to budge in the Reims midfield - nudging the Brazil captain to the floor. 
14' Neymar plays a lovely pass to Icardi, who in turn finds Di Maria. The play is fantastic in the build-up, but the final effort fails to trouble the goalkeeper. 
11' Mbappe is at his dynamic best again after serving Draxler perfectly. The shot from the Germany international is disappointing though, as it's blocked by Konan. 
M. Icardi
Goal
9' GOOOOAAAAALLL!!! REIMS 0-1 PSG!! Mbappe squeezes the ball through and Icardi manages to bring it under control. With just Rajkovic to beat, he coolly tucks it home to give the visitors an early lead.
8' Another corner is awarded to Reims, but Navas controls the situation after Chavalerin's shot from distance. 
6' Mbuku continues Reims' pressure attacking Florenzi, winning a corner from the veteran full-back. 
5' Reims get an opportunity to attack through Chevalerin, but his shot goes wayward. 
3' PSG are in the ascendancy in the early stages, putting pressure on the Reims defence as Draxler looks for an opening pass to Di Maria. 
1' KICK-OFF! We are up and running at the Stade Auguste-Delaune. Can PSG make it three wins in a row against out-of-form Reims?
