Yet carried by a double from Kylian Mbappé, PSG, in defensive distress, collapsed in the second half to lose to Monaco (2-3), Friday in Ligue 1.
This shock of the 11th day between theAS Monaco and the PSG, in the wake of the international window, took a long time to settle, but finally offered an incredible meeting! Thomas Tuchel’s team thought they were on the right track by leading 2-0 at halftime, 4 days before their crucial Champions League game against Leipzig. But that was without counting the improbable revolt of the Red and White, who ended up winning by a score of 3-2!
Mbappé too fast for Monaco
Of course, the Parisians, without Neymar at kickoff, did not need to force to turn in the lead at the break, thanks to a double from Kylian Mbappé. The tricolor prodigy took speed Axel Disasi to open the scoring (25th), before converting a penalty obtained by Rafinha (37th). PSG could have led 3-0, but a goal from Moise Kean (39th) was not validated in a rather incomprehensible way, then the same Italian striker made the crossbar tremble (44th).
A Parisian defense at bay
Too serene, like an Angel Di Maria little concerned by the defensive work of his team, the leader of Ligue 1 completely gave up in the second half. The Parisian defenders were catastrophic in the face of the Monegasque assaults. It is in particular Layvin Kurzawa who took the water on the two goals scored by a Kevin Volland who responded in peace in the absence of Wissam Ben Yedder (52nd and 66th). Presnel Kimpembe was the only one to hold the house in the absence of a gentle Marquinhos.
Neymar hasn’t changed anything
Neymar was thus launched into the battle from the 60th minute, but Paris was completely disorganized and Monaco continued to be dangerous. After several missed opportunities, it was again Volland who stole a ball from Abdou Diallo, the latter making a mistake in his area to see red. Cesc Fabregas converted the penalty (84th) to offer a great victory to ASM, which goes back to 2nd place, 4 lengths from PSG, before the rest of the day. The Parisians are already 3 defeats this season in the league.
