PSG vs. Saint-Etienne FREE LIVE STREAM (4/18/21): Watch Ligue 1 online | Time, TV, channel

Coach Mauricio Pochettino defended his decision to play Mbappe for 88 minutes even though PSG has a big game coming up against Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Moments earlier, Strasbourg midfielder Adrien Thomasson hit the post with a fine shot from just outside the penalty area, with goalkeeper Keylor Navas well beaten.

Sels was beaten again in the 26th when winger Pablo Sarabia beat a defender on the edge of the area and drilled a low shot into the bottom corner, and Mbappe set up striker Moise Kean just before the break.

Pochettino replaced Navas at halftime with Sergio Rico as a precautionary measure, ahead of the quarterfinal return leg against Bayern with PSG leading 3-2.

Pochettino took the risk of keeping Mbappe on , even though the match already looked won after Leandro Paredes hit a fine free kick 10 minutes earlier for 4-1.

Marseille fell behind after just 28 seconds when striker Andy Delort latched onto midfielder Jordan Ferri’s pass over the top and expertly lobbed goalkeeper Steve Mandanda.
