Mbappe Nets 14th Goal in PSG’s Multiscore Triumph
Paris Saint-Germain surged ahead by four points atop Ligue 1 after an electrifying 5-2 triumph against Monaco at the Parc des Princes. Kylian Mbappe’s 14th season goal epitomized a scoring spree involving five different PSG players. Despite Monaco’s spirited efforts, Luis Enrique’s side demonstrated superior firepower, securing their sixth consecutive league triumph in an enthralling encounter.
Monaco, trailing by a mere three points prior to the match, engaged PSG in an intense showdown. Nevertheless, they couldn’t match the dominance displayed by PSG, succumbing to the home side’s clinical finishing.
The match witnessed early endeavors from both factions, with Ramos and Minamino testing the goalkeepers. Mbappe and Magassa also challenged the custodians, yet it was defensive lapses that marked the scoring. Monaco’s goal was disallowed due to an offside infringement, while Ramos capitalized on a spill to grant PSG the lead.

Monaco promptly restored parity, exploiting a mistake by Donnarumma to gift Minamino a goal. However, PSG swiftly regained control through Mbappe’s successful penalty after Magassa’s challenge on Dembele.
The second half intensified with Minamino pressuring PSG’s defense, yet it was Dembele’s remarkable goal and Vitinha’s adept curling shot that seemingly sealed the victory for PSG. Monaco exhibited resilience, pulling one back through Balogun. However, PSG sealed the match with Muani’s injury-time strike.
