Monaco 1-4 Paris Saint-Germain: Kylian Mbappe scores twice to send his side eight points clear

Kylian Mbappe
Mbappe has scored in nine of the last 10 games for PSG

Kylian Mbappe scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain beat Monaco 4-1 in a rescheduled game to move eight points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

The two sides had drawn 3-3 at the Parc des Princes just three days ago but PSG dominated this encounter.

Mbappe turned in Angel di Maria's excellent ball to open the scoring before Neymar converted a penalty.

Pablo Sarabia made it 3-0 and, while Tiemoue Bakayoko got one back for Monaco, Mbappe struck again.

The 21-year-old French striker, who played for Monaco from 2015 until 2018, has now scored 13 goals in 14 games, one fewer than Ligue 1 top scorer Wissam Ben Yedder of Monaco.
