Kylian Mbappé scored and added another goal as Paris Saint-Germain defeated Patrick Vieira’s Strasbourg 3-0 in Ligue 1 on Saturday, but Nice remained unbeaten. I’m still in the lead. They won 1-0 against Marseille for the first time in a year.
On a rainy and windy day in Paris, Mbappe put PSG ahead with a penalty in the 10th minute, and Carlos Soler’s goal after the half-hour mark made it 2-0.
The reigning champions added a third goal in the 77th minute thanks to Fabian Ruiz, sealing their traditional victory.
This was PSG’s second consecutive win since losing 4-1 to Newcastle United in the Champions League earlier this month, leaving them one point behind second-placed Nice.
“The natural concern in these games right after the international break is that it’s obviously not easy to change the mentality of the players, but the team played well and managed the game very well,” PSG said. coach Luis Enrique said.
He gave a few regular players a day off, but this game also took place just before the important Champions League game against AC Milan.
Achraf Hakimi and Ousmane Dembele were among the players left out at kick-off, but Soler and Luiz were brought in, as was Lee Kang-in.
Lee played for PSG for the first time in more than a month after helping his country win a soccer gold medal at the Asian Games.
“Overall, all the players who haven’t been so committed so far this season have done well. They had a chance today and they made the most of it.” Luis Enrique said.
