Mbappe’s Double Secures PSG’s Dominant 4-1 Victory Over Lyon
In a stunning display of talent and prowess, former champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) secured a resounding 4-1 victory against Lyon in the French Ligue 1, thanks to Kylian Mbappe’s brilliant performance.
The game kicked off with an early advantage for PSG, as Mbappe confidently converted a penalty in just the second minute of the match. He didn’t stop there, adding another personal milestone by netting his second goal during injury time in the first half. PSG continued to shine as Achraf Hakimi found the back of the net in the 20th minute, followed by Marco Asensio’s goal in the 38th minute.
Despite the formidable lead by PSG, Corentin Tolisso managed to salvage some pride for Lyon with a consolation goal in the second half. Notably, this marked the first instance since 1966 that Lyon had conceded four goals in the first half of a league match.
Kylian Mbappe’s return to PSG amid swirling rumors of his departure has been nothing short of spectacular, as he has now tallied an impressive 5 goals in the last three games.
With this win, PSG, who have secured their second victory in four games this season, have climbed to the second spot in the league standings, amassing a total of 8 points. Currently, it’s Monaco leading the charge with 10 points from the same number of games.
