Paris overthrown by Monaco, Bordeaux dominates Rennes

Midfielder Cesc Fabregas scores AS Monaco's second goal on November 20 at home.

Before crucial matches in the Champions League, a worrying PSG lost 3-2 in Monaco at the end of a stunning match while Rennes was still bogged down, defeated 1-0 by the Girondins, Friday, November 20.

Before receiving Leipzig in the Champions League on Tuesday for a decisive match, the Parisians showed significant flaws in the second act of a meeting that they had yet started in the right way.

Back from injury, Kylian Mbappé scored his 98e and 99e goals for the capital club, well served by Di Maria (25e) then on penalty (37e) before two goals were refused to PSG for offside (39e and 44e).

Uninspired in the first half, the Monegasques approached the second act much better and quickly got back together thanks to Kevin Volland, author of two fox goals from the surfaces (52e and 66e).

Neymar’s entry on the hour mark did not have the desired effect unlike that of Fabregas for the Monegasques, who signed the victorious penalty, obtained by the inevitable Volland (84e) on a fault worth a red card to Abdou Diallo.

ASM finally won 3-2 and climbed to second place, four points from Paris, before the rest of the 11e day this weekend.

The lightning of Ben Arfa

After their defeat, the Parisians are still five points ahead of Lille, which will host Lorient on Sunday night, and six over Rennes, which lost earlier Friday night, at home against the Girondins.

The bad series continues for the third of the last championship, already defeated 3-0 in Paris before the international break, and on the same score at Chelsea in C1.

The Bretons fell on Bordeaux re-motivated after two slaps received in Monaco (4-0) and against Montpellier (2-0), led by the restless Ben Arfa and Kalu. The two men are involved in the Bordeaux goal, Samuel Kalu managing to eliminate Camavinga before serving Hatem Ben Arfa. The former Rennais eliminates then crosses his shot, giving the FCGB a head start.

Never beaten after having opened the scoring this season, the Girondins are united and repel the assaults of the Bretons, who find twice the amounts of Benoît Costil by Romain Del Castillo and Jérémy Doku (43e and 79e).

Bordeaux returned to three points behind their opponent in the evening before going to challenge PSG at the Parc next Saturday, while Stade Rennes received Chelsea on Tuesday in C1.
