Montpellier 1-3 Paris St-Germain: Neymar, Mbappe and Icardi score in win


Neymar has scored six goals in eight Ligue 1 games this season

Paris St-Germain came from behind to beat 10-man Montpellier and go eight points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

The hosts had led through Leandro Paredes’ own goal but the game changed when they had Pedro Mendes sent off for two bookings with 18 minutes to go.

Neymar scored the resulting free-kick and then Kylian Mbappe blasted them into the lead – the 20-year-old’s 40th goal in his past 39 league games.

Mauro Icardi volleyed home Mbappe’s cross to make sure of the win.

PSG – who lost Presnel Kimpembe and Idrissa Gueye to first-half injuries – have now used 30 players in their 16 league games this season, more than any other team in Europe’s top five leagues.
