Neymar’s squad devours Lorient

Neymar and his Friends are currently facing its guest, Lorient, in the meeting that brings them together at the Parc des Princes,

The Paris Saint-Germain squad witnessed the return of Argentine star Lionel Messi again,

Kylian Mbappe scored two goals and assisted three goals, leading Paris Saint-Germain, leaders of the French Ligue 1, to crush its guest Lorient 5-1 on Sunday.

In a match in which Lionel Messi scored and Neymar scored twice, the attacking three produced a remarkable performance, in contrast to what happened in the disappointing 3-0 defeat in Monaco last month.

Paris Saint-Germain raised its tally to 68 points from 30 matches, 12 points ahead of second-placed Olympique de Marseille,

who beat struggling hosts Saint-Etienne 4-2 earlier on Sunday.


Lorient, whose only goal was scored by Terim Movi to make it 2-1 in the second half, remained in 16th place with 28 points.

“We are happy with the win, but we know how difficult it is to win the league, so we must continue what we are doing until we win the title,” Neymar said.

“Exiting the Champions League (against Real Madrid) hurts us a lot because we wanted to win the title.

It was difficult for the fans to bear, but it is more difficult for us.”

And Paris Saint-Germain needed only 12 minutes to advance after the cooperation of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe.

The France striker received the ball from Messi and prepared it for Neymar, who scored from inside the penalty area.

Mbappe doubled his team’s lead in the 28th minute with a low shot in the near corner after a pass from Idrissa Ji.

Messi almost added the third goal for Paris Saint-Germain, but the ball passed outside the field.

Movi revived Lorient’s hopes in the second half when he took advantage of a faulty pass

from Ashraf Hakimi to put the ball past Gianluca Donnarumma.

But Mbappe took charge and restored Paris Saint-Germain’s two-goal advantage with a shot from outside the penalty area.

Paris Saint-Germain fans cheered for Mbappe, who ran towards the goal and exchanged a pass with Ji,

before passing it to Messi to score.

Mbappe made another goal with a perfect pass to Neymar, who concluded the five in the last minute.
