Mbappe Shines As Ruthless PSG Move Second

Ligue 1

Result: Dijon 0-4 Paris Saint-Germain

Date: 27 February 2021

Venue: Stade Gaston Gérard

Kylian Mbappe bagged a brace as Paris Saint-Germain thumped Dijon 4-0 to reclaim second spot in Ligue 1 on Saturday evening.

With Neymar still out, Julian Draxler joined Kylian Mbappe and Kean in the PSG attack while Thilo Kehrer and Abdou Diallo were also recalled.

Moise Kean got the festivities underway on six minutes with a neat finish from six yards out after getting on the end Diallo's pass.

Dijon, meanwhile, struggled to get any serious attacks going in the first half as Mauricio Pochettino's men did well to take control of possession.

With 30 minutes gone, the defending league champions were awarded a penalty for a handball on Bersant Celina, which allowed Mbappe to slot home from 12 yards out.

PSG continued the dominance in the second half, with Mbappe completing his brace six minutes after the break with a powerful finish that left Anthony Racioppi with no chance.

While Dijon were unable to trouble PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas, the hosts had the ball in the back of the net at the other end on 74 minutes but Draxler's strike was flagged for offside.

The fourth goal did arrive with seven minutes left on the clock on as Danilo Pereira rattled the back of the net after getting on the end of Draxler's cross to nod past Racioppi.
