PSG Star Angel Di Maria Pulls Off Stunning Rabona Assist For Mauro Icardi's Goal Vs Angers

Angel Di Maria produced a sensational rabona assist for Mauro Icardi as Paris Saint-Germain thrashed Angers 5-0 in the French Cup.

The defending Ligue 1 champions welcomed Angers to the Parc des Princes for their quarter-final clash on Wednesday.



PSG took the lead in the opening 10 minutes through Icardi before Vincent Manceau turned the ball into the back of his own net in the 23rd minute.

With Mauricio Pochettino's men 2-0 up at half-time, PSG continued to add to their goalscoring tally as Neymar scored his side's third.

But Di Maria stole the show for PSG's fourth as he produced a dazzling display in the build-up play.

The 33-year-old Argentine charged into the box and caught one Angers player out by complete surprise after cutting in instead of shooting.


Di Maria then pulled off a rabona pass to an unmarked Icardi, who smashed home his second of the match past a helpless Ludovic Butelle.

"One of the biggest mistakes [Real] Madrid made was letting him go," one fan posted.

While another tweeted: "One of my favourite players for a reason."

Someone else wrote: "God he's class."


And a fourth Twitter user said: "One of the best Di Maria's assists I have ever seen man, such a baller."

Icardi capped off a fine performance as he completed his hat-trick in the 90th minute to seal PSG's 5-0 demolition of Angers.

Lyon, meanwhile, will host Monaco at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais today for the other French Cup quarter-final clash.

PSG will now turn their attention back to Ligue 1 as they travel to the Stade Saint-Symphorien on Saturday for their clash with Metz.
