Kylian Mbappe scored twice as PSG cruised to a 4-1 win over Olympique Lyonnais in French Ligue 1 on Sunday night. With this loss, Lin has collected only one point in four matches and has gone to the bottom of the table.
Mbappe’s two first-half goals from Ashraf Hakimi and Marco Asensio gave PSG a 4-0 lead before the break. The win at Dapute is indicative of the reigning champions’ confident performance for the rest of the season.
Corentin Tolisso scored a second-half penalty for Lions. But the seven-time French champions could not recover from a poor start to the season. Laurent Blanc’s side slipped to the bottom of the table behind last season’s runners-up Lens and Clément on goal difference.
Meanwhile, with this win, PSG has risen to second place. The reigning champions are two points behind leaders Monaco with eight points after winning two consecutive matches after drawing the first two matches.
“It’s a great result,” PSG captain Marquinhos said. It is not an easy task to come here and win. Unless the adversary does not introduce himself to his ability. We are still not able to play according to what the coach specifically wants. But we are improving every day. The coach is still telling us what he wants. He said that there is still a need for improvement in several places.
Leo’s season under new American owner John Textor didn’t get off to a good start. Considering the club’s financial situation, he said he is unwilling to sign any new players in the summer. As a result, the former PSG boss Blank is now under pressure with this result of the club. A disappointed Leo Boss said at the end of the match, ‘The supporters have enough reasons to be disappointed. But in this situation, no one person should be held responsible. Everyone is responsible here.’
