In an impressive display, Kylian Mbappe delivered a clinical performance, scoring a hat-trick as Paris Saint-Germain secured a 3-0 victory against high-flying Reims. This win propelled PSG to the top of the Ligue 1 table, surpassing Nice by a single point.
Mbappe’s early goal in the third minute set the tone for the match, and he continued to dominate the game with two more goals in the second half. Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma played a crucial role in denying Reims any chance of a comeback, making a series of exceptional saves. With 13 goals in 11 appearances, Mbappe remains the top scorer in Ligue 1 this season. Despite their recent Champions League loss, PSG has found their rhythm domestically after a slow start to the campaign.
This victory marked their fifth consecutive win in Ligue 1, as they aim to maintain their position at the summit. Nice, still unbeaten this season, sit closely behind PSG in the league standings. Monaco, currently in third place, has the opportunity to surpass Nice on goal difference in their upcoming match against Le Havre.
