French League: PSG Moves 5 Points Ahead Of Marseille


Paris Saint-Germain won 3-1 at Montpellier and moved five points clear at the top of the French league on Wednesday.

Kylian Mbappé had a difficult night as he missed a twice-taken penalty for Paris Saint-Germain against Montpellier and then hit the rebound over the crossbar before leaving the game with an injury. Mbappé left the game in the first half after clutching his right leg and rubbing the back of his left thigh.

It was unclear exactly what his injury was.

However, PSG coach Christophe Galtier stated that it doesn’t look serious and they’re not too worried.

“Is it a bruise? We don’t know yet. It doesn’t look very serious,” Galtier said after PSG won 3-1 to move five points clear atop the league. “We’re not too worried,” he added.

The Argentina star Messi tucked home PSG’s second goal with a typically neat finish in the 72nd after being set up by Fabián Ruiz, who put PSG ahead in the 55th.

Striker Arnaud Nordin pulled one back in the 89th and, with the home team pushing forward, 16-year-old substitute Warren Zaïre-Emery drove the ball home for 3-1 in stoppage time with his first goal for the club.

With this, PSG is five points ahead of Marseille, which won 2-0 at Nantes to move one point ahead of Lens into second spot for the automatic Champions League place.
