On the occasion of the 5th day of Ligue 1, Paris Saint-Germain won in Toulouse (0-3) this Wednesday evening. A success that allows the Parisian club to keep the lead of the championship.
Three days after the draw at home against AS Monaco (1-1), Paris Saint-Germain reacted well by beating Toulouse (3-0) at the Stadium. Given their superiority, it was a well-deserved victory for the Parisians, who had the main chances. From the beginning, Messi and Mbappé were not far from taking advantage of a big scramble in the area.
Nothing to do with the finesse of the actions led or concluded by the Argentine, surprised to see the keeper Dupé out of his three attempts! It must be said that the Toulouse keeper was hot. It is still him who deflected the outside of the foot and the recovery of Mbappé. On the other side, Toulouse had not put the bus. The locals, with a very good Ratão, projected themselves on the counter at the slightest opportunity. But only Dallinga’s shot from a tight angle forced Donnarumma to work. Insufficient to disturb a PSG more and more dominant, and logically rewarded by the goal of Neymar (0-1, 37th) first refused and then granted by the VAR after a beautiful collective movement of the MNM.
The MNM answered present
PSG would have deserved to extend their lead at half-time. But it didn’t matter, as soon as the half-time break came, an offer from Messi allowed Mbappé (0-2, 50th) to put his team in the clear. The promoters had come back with better intentions but in this form, the Parisian strikers were unstoppable. Without the show Dupé in the cage, Toulouse would have taken a suitcase! Mbappé on several occasions, Vitinha and even the newcomer Ekitike… All of them had to face the reflexes of the goalkeeper, except Bernat (0-3, 90th) after a shot of Mbappé on the post. This was enough to conclude a logical success and keep the lead of the championship for PSG.
6/10 Even if PSG clearly dominated the game, we witnessed an enjoyable match. The first half hour of the game was of good quality and offered a nice opposition. But above all, the combinations of the Parisian strikers were delightful.
– Served by Verratti in the axis in front of the surface, Mbappé deflects for Messi who launches Neymar in depth in one touch.

With the flat of his foot and without control, the Parisian striker easily beat Dupé (0-2, 50th). – After a powerful shot of Mbappé on the post, Bernat, more reactive than the Toulouse defense, shoot Dupé!
