Top-of-the-table Nice went to Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday, hoping to keep their Ligue 1 lead and continue their improbable run in the league. They got off to a fantastic start 32 minutes into the match as Wylan Cyprien surgically implanted a perfect free kick in the back of the net to put the visitors ahead.
It’s a work of art fit for the Louvre.
There was absolutely nothing PSG keeper Alphonse Areola could do about it. Mario Balotelli looked on from the bench, and even he couldn’t quibble about the accuracy of the pinpoint strike.
As it stands, PSG and Nice are knotted up at 2-2. Nice could use a bit more of Cyprien’s magic to secure all three points, but another perfect strike like his first may just be too much to ask.
