Paris Saint-Germain 4 -0 Dijon: Kylian Mbappe double inspires comfortable victory

Paris Saint-Germain claimed a comfortable 4-0 win over Dijon in Ligue 1 on Saturday thanks to two goals from Kylian Mbappe.

Kylian Mbappe scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain cruised to a 4-0 victory over Dijon on Saturday to re-establish their 13-point lead at the top of Ligue 1.

Spain midfielder Pablo Sarabia opened the scoring early in the game as he netted his ninth goal in all competitions since the start of 2020.

Mbappe added a second after the break with a composed finish before he set up substitute Mauro Icardi at the Parc des Princes.

France international Mbappe then put the gloss on the result in injury time when he tapped in his 18th league goal of the season after Julian Draxler's initial shot had been blocked.

PSG seized an early advantage when a miscued shot from Marquinhos inadvertently found Sarabia near the penalty spot and he reacted quickly to direct it past Dijon goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson.

PSG were dealt a blow shortly afterwards when Angel Di Maria left the field with a slight hamstring strain and was replaced by Draxler as a precaution.

Dijon rarely threatened as Thomas Tuchel's side kept a clean sheet having conceded nine goals in their previous three games.

The match remained in the balance as PSG were wasteful in front of goal until the floodgates opened with three goals in the final 16 minutes.

Mbappe notched PSG's second when he raced on to Draxler's throughball and angled in the finish.

He then turned provider moments later when PSG capitalised on a slipshod Dijon backline and played in Icardi who kept his cool and slid the ball home.

Mbappe completed the rout in injury time with the simplest of finishes past Runarsson after the ball had dropped to him following Draxler's shot.

PSG move step closer to title

Second-placed Marseille's 3-2 win at Nimes on Friday will have registered on PSG's radar, but Tuchel's side do not look like being knocked off their stride. PSG have a sizable cushion at the top of the table and the march to a ninth league title appears inevitable.

Majestic Mbappe magical again

Without the suspended Neymar, and with Di Maria leaving the action earlier than anticipated, the attacking baton fell to Mbappe. The 21-year-old seized it producing tricks, flicks, a double nutmeg and two goals to boot.

h made it two. He also forged the fifth in a majestic display.
