Kylian Mbappe and Neymar were on fire on Saturday as both scored hat-tricks as Paris Saint-Germain hammered Clermont Foot 6-1 away to move a step closer to the Ligue 1 title. Mbappe, who scored two and set up two last weekend against Lorient, struck both sides of the interval, just like Neymar, to take his league season tally to 20 and put PSG on 71 points from 31 games. They are 15 points ahead of second-placed Stade Rennais. Clermont, who reduced the arrears through Jodel Dossou, are 17th on 28 points after their fifth defeat in a row.
It is said that appetite comes with eating. So surely also that confidence comes with winning. In this little game, Clermont did not necessarily waste his time by coming to challenge and beat a Toulouse team. A victory which comes after having subdued Rodez (L2) and Montpellier (L1). For this trip which had filled Baradel which will see Aurillac relegated to R1 next season, Pascal Gastien and Philippe Montagnier had agreed to make two matches. Obviously, the “one” CF63 team which will challenge Neymar, M’Bappé, Neymar and company should not stray too far from the one who played first yesterday in Cantal
Rennes are ahead of Marseille on goal difference, after holding off Stade de Reims’s late challenge in a 3-2 away win earlier on Saturday. In Clermont, PSG overcame mediocre first half to ultimately blow out their minnow hosts. Neymar put them ahead after six minutes, firing home with a low crossed shot after being set up by Lionel Messi. Messi also set up the second for Mbappe, who beat Arthur Desmas from inside the box with a clinical half volley in the 19th minute. Clermont, however, hit back just before half-time when Saif-Eddine Khaoui’s cross was met by Dossou, who found the back of the net with a right-footed effort from the penalty spot.
PSG were then unstoppable in the second half. Neymar put them 3-1 up with a penalty after a foul on Mbappe in the 72nd minute, two minutes before the France international added a fourth, dribbling past the keeper after being set up by Neymar to tap the ball into the empty net. Six minutes later, Mbappe was at it again, benefiting from a nice combination between Messi and Neymar to curl a shot into the top corner. Seven minutes from time, Mbappe rushed into the area and his pass was collected by Neymar who coolly finished it off from close range. Paris Saint-Germain opened up its new season on a convincing note, as it secured a 4-0 win over Nantes in the 2022 Trophee des Champions Final.
Lionel Messi was among the three players who got on the scoresheet for PSG in the contest. The Argentine forward was also quite active when on the ball, which included three goal-scoring chances created for teammates, and also the seven ground duels won. After the match (via L’Equipe), PSG center-back Marquinhos, who earned a start in the fixture, analyzed just what went behind Messi’s keen showing in the final. For one, the Brazilian defender noted that Messi played in a position that he “likes.” “Leo (Messi) was very comfortable on the pitch,” Marquinhos said. “He is in a position that he likes, the coach has managed to get the best out of the players and that has influenced the performance of the whole group.
“We did a good preparation, almost a month, and it shows.” With Kylian Mbappe unavailable for the match due to a yellow card suspension, PSG manager Christophe Galtier opted to start Messi as a center-forward upfront. The move paid off, as the Argentine was able to get both Neymar and Pablo Sarabia involved in key attacking sequences. For now, PSG is set for its Ligue 1 opener against Clermont Foot on Saturday.
