PSG coach Christophe Galtier prepared the team without the in-form Neymar Jr. However, this change did not have much impact on the game. Instead, the current champions got an easy victory thanks to the brilliance of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.

It is far from turning around after digesting the goal. Six minutes later, Brazilian defender Fabio was shown a straight red card for a dangerous foul on PSG midfielder Vitinia. However, the hosts started to counter attack after handling the shock.

Mbappe doubled the lead early in the second half. Enter the D-box and pass to the right to Messi. The Argentine forward gave a return pass even though he could not take a shot due to the defense. Mbappé taps the ball into the net. This season, Mbappe’s goals are now 7, Neymar’s goal tally is also the same.

In the 63rd minute, Galtier picked up Mbappe and brought Neymar to the field. Shortly after the substitution, the Brazilian forward’s shot was blocked by the post. However, the young defender Mendes widened the gap with a strong shot after receiving the return ball.
