One way race. Crushing victory, like and maybe even more than expected. Lyon is the big sufferer of this early season, between an effervescent market only going out to tidy up the accounts put under control by the League, and quarrels between old and new owners. In short, it was not the best time to challenge a PSG in vertical ascent, overwhelming and ruthless, who scored with Mbappé, twice, but also with Hakimi and Asensio. Di Tolisso, on penalty, the goal of the landlords.


However, Luis Enrique’s team was already 4-0 up at the end of the first half. And already ahead after 4′ with a penalty obtained by Ugarte and converted by Mbappé. The first flicker of a long series, with the double in the 20th minute, on an action orchestrated between Dembélé’s dribbles from the right, to serve Mbappé. But the ball ends up in Hakimi who controls and puts in. Then between an insidious shot by Cherki from outside, raised for a corner by Donnarumma (31′) and one under goal by Tolisso, rejected by the blue (34′), there is also the crossbar by Asensio (32′). And the Spaniard made up for it in the 4th minute, taking advantage of a through ball from Ugarte and punishing Lopes. In the 42nd minute Mbappé charges his right foot from the edge that ends up on the opposite end, but then adjusts his aim and served deep by Asensio translates the fourth seal into the net (47′).


The second half opens in the sign of Donnarumma, inflexible on a close shot by Baldé (1 ‘). And apart from a couple of chances for Dembélé, one of which with a header over the crossbar (11’), and another couple of inaccuracies from Mbappè, it was the blue goalkeeper again who made the difference, with at least three other interventions that they highlight certain weaknesses of the Parisian rearguard: useful notes for Leao and Giroud on the Parisian leaks. On the other hand, the former Rossoneri could do nothing on Tolisso’s penalty, who signed the flag goal in the 29th minute. But it is still 1-4 which certifies the last place for Blanc’s team called to report under the curve at the final whistle.
