Montpellier 1–3 PSG: Dagba, Kean, Mbappe fire PSG to return to winning ways

Kylian Mbappe-PSG

Dagba, Kean and Mbappe found the scoresheet to inspire Les Parisiens to a comprehensive win.

PSG have finally returned to the winning ways in Ligue 1 after beating Montpellier 3-1 away.

Collin Dagba broke the deadlock after the half-hour mark, latching on to a perfect cross from Angel Di Maria. The lead didn’t last long as Stephy Mavididi found the equaliser for the hosts, scoring on the rebound and despite Keylor Navas’ crawling effort, the ball crossed the goal line.

Mavdidi could have doubled the lead for Montpellier but Navas made a sliding save to keep the scoreboard 1-1 at half time.

The pressure was felt by the Les Parisiens as they were desperate for a win after losing two of their last encounters in Ligue 1.

Moise Kean put PSG ahead when the game reached the final quarter and the Italian striker scored in a spectacular fashion. Kylian Mbappe, who came as a substitute, scored the final goal of the game in the stoppage time, which eventually turned out to be a simple finish. The goal also marked his 100th in the PSG shirt.

Thomas Tuchel was scrutinized a lot after PSG lost to Monaco – conceding three goals in the second half – and followed by a draw against Bordeaux. However, the German manager has now responded with back to back wins including the 3-1 routing of Manchester United in the Champions League midweek.

Les Parisiens are now leading the Ligue 1 table with 28 points, four points clear of Marseille.
