PSG went to win this Wednesday evening on the lawn of Montpellier (1-2). A victory tainted by the exit on injury of Kylian Mbappé.
After having chained two matches without success in Ligue 1 – a defeat in Rennes and a draw against Reims – Paris Saint-Germain, without Neymar or Marco Verratti, returned to the joys of victory, this Wednesday evening as part of the 21st lifting of the championship, against Montpellier (1-3).
The French champions had to wait until the second half to shake the nets, first through Fabian Ruiz (0-1, 55th), author of his first goal in Ligue 1. The midfielder then turned into a smuggler for Lionel Messi (0-2, 72nd), who was denied a goal in the first period for an offside position (35th). Just like Hakimi at the start of the second period (52nd).
At the end of the match, Nordin thought to revive the suspense with a superb wrapped shot (1-2, 89th), but Warren Zaire-Emery, who came into play during the match, answered him in stride (1-3, 90th +2). The Titi thus becomes the youngest scorer in the history of Paris Saint-Germain.
Big concern for Mbappé
Despite the victory which allows the Parisians to regain a five-point lead at the top of the championship, the capital club trembles for its jewel Kylian Mbappé. Indeed, the kid from Bondy had to leave his partners in the 20th minute after contact with Léo Leroy. The tricolor international, replaced by Hugo Ekitike, came out grimacing and holding the back of his left thigh. Very bad news 13 days before the shock in the Champions League against Bayern Munich. Also note the injury exit of Sergio Ramos, hit in the left adductor.
