For its second outing of the season at the Parc des Princes, PSG extinguished a Clermont team on fire since early August. Despite the multiple absences, Mauricio Pochettino’s men widened the gap at the top of Ligue 1. Ander Herrera offered himself a brace, Kylian Mbappé his small weekly goal, and Gianluigi Donnarumma made his big debut. We can’t wait for Wednesday in Bruges.

Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 Clermont

Buts: Herrera (21e, 31e), Mbappé (55e) and Gueye (66e) For Paris

A promoted on fire before the international break, a host of internationals absent for the occasion and the smell of the Champions League which begins to make some nostrils tremble: Paris Saint-Germain could fear its second outing of the season at home opposite Clermont. A duel a priori particularly unbalanced between two teams still undefeated at kick-off after four days. But after 90 minutes of show, the surprise did not take place, and the men of the capital garner a fifth success which consolidates their place as leader of Ligue 1. A success that Ander Herrera had begun to draw with a double in the first period, before Kylian Mbappé and Idrissa Gueye came to bring their personal touch after the break.

San Ander

There are matches where the cast is almost more impressive in the stands than on the pitch. Under the eyes of Messi, Di María or even Paredes, who came to attend the meeting just one day after their return from selection, the Parisians are attacking hard. Pressure, speed, forward game: Clermont is already cornered. Whistled by the Park at the announcement of his name, Kylian Mbappé finds the head of Marquinhos on a free kick love, but Desmas intervenes (11e). A few minutes later, it is the Hakimi arrow which pierces the Auvergne shell for the first time to come to Desmas, whose stop benefits Herrera, scorer of the head (1-0, 21e).

A goal awarded after long moments by the video, but which only increases the pressure put by the Red and Blue. Zedadka must miraculously intervene in front of Danilo (24e), Mbappé tries his luck from entering the area (26e) and it is of course Ander Herrera who shakes up the suspense a little more closely, after an excellent job of his number 7 (2-0, 31e). A hundred meters further, the first under its new colors of Gigio Donnarumma is rather calm, despite Clermont’s desire to play permanently, dangerous on several occasions despite the absence of Mohamed Bayo (17e, 28e, 43e). Not enough to scare Julian Draxler, whose attempt is thwarted in extremis by a Zedadka once again decisive before the break (40e).

Pleased to offer

Unfortunately for the promoted, Paris is far from being satisfied, starting with Kylian Mbappé. And if Marquinhos must once again intervene in its surface (54e), the great guy of this second act is none other than the international tricolor. Perfectly served in the back of the defense, he left in the wake of eliminating Desmas to score his fourth goal of the season, already (3-0, 55e). Delighted instantly, the Park then saw him miss his shot from afar (56e), then his little dive, while Rafinha was perfectly placed (64e). But it is after a new difference on his part and an attempt rejected by Desmas that Gueye can score with a header into the empty goal to embellish the afternoon even more. (4-0, 66e). Sufficient to manage the playing time and the expenditure of energy of each, four days to find the European scene, Wednesday evening in Bruges. And for Abdou Diallo to make the Pleasure Park scream by chaining the wheels to the edge of the corner post.
