Ligue 1 – 5th day: Paris wins in Toulouse (0-3), Lionel Messi double decisive passer

The reigning French champions resume their victorious march. Held in check by Monaco last Sunday (1-1), the players of PSG went to win clearly in Toulouse, Wednesday, during the 5th day of Ligue 1 (3-0). Despite the good resistance of the promoted symbolized by goalkeeper Maxime Dupé, Neymar (37th), Kylian Mbappé (50th) and Juan Bernat (90th) shook the nets. Paris remains at the top of the ranking on equal points with Lens and Marseille. The Violets are in 13th place.

In the beautiful and boiling atmosphere of the Stadium, the debates got off to a flying start. The Messi-Neymar-Mbappé trio immediately set fire to Maxime Dupé’s area, who courageously resisted (2nd). Positioned low, the Toulousains were also able to place quick counterattacks thanks to a great burst of energy and their center forward Thijs Dallinga called on Gigio Donnarumma several times (5th, 9th).

Even if he sometimes lacked lucidity, the biting Zakaria Aboukhlal also often showed himself, in particular by going to counter the recovery at the foot of the Italian goalkeeper to obtain a corner on which Dallinga did not frame his recovery from the head (29th ). Toulouse tried to shake up the visitors but also suffered a lot in defense and Dupé had to chain the parades in front of Mbappé (10th, 37th) and Messi (25th) before losing to Neymar, well launched by the Pulga and whose goal was refused and then validated using the VAR (0-1, 37th). Already author of his 7th achievement in L1 this season, his 109th with PSG, the Brazilian joins Pauleta as the 4th best scorer in the history of the club. He would have liked to return the favor to his Argentinian friend but the last bastion of the Violets still intervened (45th).
