Paris St-Germain warmed up for a crucial Champions League match against Newcastle by defeating Monaco 5-2 to go four points clear at the top of Ligue 1.
Opening Goal and Quick Equalizer
The match saw Goncalo Ramos propel the hosts ahead, capitalizing on an opportunity after a mistake from Monaco’s away goalkeeper Philipp Kohn. However, Gianluigi Donnarumma’s clearance inadvertently landed to Takumi Minamino, enabling him to swiftly level the score.
Kylian Mbappe’s impact was undeniable as his converted penalty put PSG back in the lead after Minamino’s equalizer. Notably, Mbappe’s goal against his former team marked his 14th of the season in the league, showcasing his consistency and prowess.
PSG’s dominance continued in the second half, with Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha adding two more goals to solidify their lead. Monaco managed to pull one back through Folarin Balogun, but PSG’s Randal Kolo Muani extended their lead further with a fifth goal.
Key Moments: Goals and Mistakes
Mbappe’s goal followed a foul by Soungoutou Magassa on Dembele in the 18-yard box, leading to the crucial penalty. Ramos’ goal earlier in the match capitalized on a mistake from Monaco’s goalkeeper, securing a score only days after his long-term future with the team was confirmed.
Summary of PSG’s Commanding Victory
