Paris Saint-Germain has recovered on Saturday for the expensive defeat that was suffered six days ago against AS Monaco. The men of trainer Mauricio Pochettino had no trouble at all with Dijon, which had to take four goals against in-house: 0-4. Two of them came in the name of Kylian Mbappé, who is well ahead of the top scorers list with eighteen hits. It was the fifth time this season that the striker has scored at least two goals in a match, a feat no one has ever achieved in Ligue 1.

PSG is always plagued by injuries and had to miss Neymar, Ángel Di María, Mauro Icardi and Marco Verratti on Saturday. Beautiful interplay between the players of the Parisians resulted in the opening goal in the sixth minute. Mbappé had an eye on the left sideline for the profound Abdou Diallo, who passed the ball to Moise Kean from within the box. The striker took the lead and poked the ball low in the corner: 0-1.

The visitors then kept control, without creating much. After more than half an hour, PSG was awarded a penalty because of a handball from former FC Twente player Bersant Celina, who was shot impeccably by Mbappé: 0-2. Six minutes after the break, the French striker signed for his second of the game. Rafinha cleverly put the ball from the edge of the box ready for Mbappé, who finished with the left: 0-3. A striking header by Danilo from a corner kick by Julian Draxler resulted in the 0-4 for PSG eight minutes before the end.
