The party turned to the demonstration. Montpellier celebrates 10 years of French title, especially PSG, which is more imposed in 37 days by Ligue 1, on Saturday (0-4). In good form, Lionel Messi quickly offered himself a double, Angel Di Maria also scored in the first period and Kylian Mbappé converted a penalty, in stoppage time, in addition to his two assists for La Pulga. What to strengthen his status as top scorer and passer of the championship.

Lined up in 5-4-1 but seriously diminished by the absences of Savanier, Wahi, Cabella, or Sakho, the Héraultais were wrong in their strategy and quickly appeared outdated. They wanted to play high enough and were punished on the first against Parisian. If Bertaud deflected a shot from Messi, who took part in his right post (6th), he bent over the next corner. Served by Mbappé in the middle of the surface, Messi placed his recovery close to the back of the net (0-1, 6th).

Mbappé still untenable

Neymar was suspended but Messi, lined up in the false nine, and Mbappé made their qualities known from one end of the match to the other. Launched by the Argentine, the Frenchman stumbled on Bertaud (10th). The duo returned to the charge and, with an outside right foot on the left, the former Monegasque served the former Barcelonais in the penalty spot for a dribble on the goalkeeper before pushing the ball into the cage (0 -2, 20e). Messi now has 6 goals in L1 this season during which Mbappé displays 17 decisive passes.

A starter in the Parisian cage, Donnarumma first proved quite feverish on a kick to the foot that Mavibide failed to punish (16th) and then on a poorly negotiated exit (19th). The Italian goalkeeper did well because Montpellier clearly lacked offensive power. The opposite of PSG care took off on a recovery from the left in the run of the stirring Di Maria at the second post after a cross from Mbappé from the left and extended from the head by Chotard (0-3, 26th) . In good shape lately, the former Mancunian has scored his 4th goal in L1 in 2021-2022, the first since November 28.

A peak playing time for young Parisians

Thanks to his fire attack, PSG continued to fly over the debates but Mbappé’s shot from 20 meters crashed on the crossbar (34th). Ramos’ attempts did not worry Bertaud (36th and 44th). In the second half, the MHSC also lost Mavididi to injury (48th). Souquet, on the other hand, constantly suffered against Mbappé and ended up conceding a penalty that the Parisian striker converted for a 25th goal in the league this season (0-4, 60th). Newcomers Germain and Gioacchini put more work into the Paris defense without alerting Donnarumma as Kehrer nicely countered the second-placed (65th). Mollet, on the other hand, had found the outside of the post on a cross from the right (64th).

Pochettino was able to throw Simons and Michut in place of the discreet Herrera and Wijnaldum (69th). PSG finished the game without forcing and Gassama was also able to make his big debut in the elite (90th). Montpellier remained combative but failed to save the honor in front of its 2012 champions, compared to those of 2022. Despite a few jets of projectiles and smoke bombs in addition to this heavy setback, the audience of La Mosson did well the right to a firework for the latter at home. Still 13th in the standings, Montpellier is playing an unsuccessful 8th game as PSG resume with the victory after 3 draws, on this penultimate day.
