The star-studded Paris Saint-Germain went for the title by winning their match against the second team of Ligue 1. The attacking duo of Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi were especially dominant at the Parc des Princes, especially the third goal of the match lifted the fans from their seats.
The French Ligue 1 is approaching its final stage and the first team of the table, Paris Saint-Germain, has not been the most confident in recent matches. It has given its chasers a chance to make a run at the top of the league.
The Lens players have been putting pressure on leaders PSG in recent weeks, and they wanted to take the league leader by surprise on its own field in a mutual match.
The star team from the French capital hosted the second team of the table of the highest French football competition in the 31st round of the season.
Unfortunately, the visiting team from Lens was betrayed by an early sending off of Abdul Samed. The Ghanaian midfielder headed for the showers in the 19th minute of the match, when he badly tackled the home side’s full-back Achraf Hakimi.
Just twelve minutes later, the home side enjoyed their first taste of joy. Kylian Mbappé was perfectly positioned in the penalty area and sent the ball into the net with a beautiful turn against the bar.
After just six minutes, Portuguese midfielder Vitinha increased the lead with a long-range shot that beat the visitors’ goalkeeper for the second time.
By the end of the first half, the match was virtually decided by the star home duo, who in two beautifully dismantled the opponents’ defence.
Messi, after a beautiful combination by his team through the middle, headed the ball, passed it to Mbappe, who returned it with an incredible patch and the Argentine legend headed into the black.
In the second half, although the visitors reduced the deficit with a Przemyslaw Frankowski penalty kick, the home side did not allow any surprises. Paris Saint-Germain thus increased their lead at the top of the table over second-placed Lens to nine points with only seven rounds remaining in the competition.
