PSG Players presented a beautiful match to their fans and spectators Neymar and Mbappé both scored hat-tricks and Messi makes 3 assists against Clermont Foot.
PSG wanted to get back to where they left FC Laurent in their 5-1 hammering last weekend, and they got off to a great start as they took the lead in just six minutes of their tour in Auburn. Clarmont was looking for a free-kick while Alidu Sedu was lying on the ground in the box, Lionel Messi supplying Neymar and he started the goal by bypassing Arthur Desmas.
Any hopes Clarmont had against the fugitive League 1 leaders were seen in the 19th minute when he scored again. Messi assisted again, and this time Mbappe was nearing the end to pull the ball to Desmas, the Clarmont goalkeeper starting his first league in five months.

However, Clarmont was given the hope as they narrowed the deficit three minutes before half-time when Saif-Edin Khawi’s ball bounced back into the goal in the second game of the season, and the score remained 2-1. Desmass saved from Neymar just before the half time break.
Claremont – who suspended coach Pascal Gastien from the stand – actually came close to equalizing through Jason Barthomeier just after the hour mark, but then the PSG fled the game. With 20 minutes left, Messi was denied a goal for offside in the build-up before Akim Jedadka fouled Mbappe in the box, and Neymar took the penalty home to restore the spectators’ two-goal advantage.
Neymar then released Mbappe in the 74th minute with a ball from above his boot and scored his second and PSG’s fourth goal for France superstar Desmas. Shortly after his hat-trick goal, Neymar and Messi teamed up to set up Mbappe, who scored his 31st goal of the season in all competitions (80’s). Mbappe then broke the offside trap and ran to square Neymar to complete his hat-trick in the 63rd minute.
It was Brazil’s first hat-trick in a League 1 game since Dijon FCO made four in January 2018. PSG are now temporarily at the top of the table with 15 points and next weekend with the Classic against Olympique de Marseille. , Their titles are more likely to be secured before the end of this month.
