PSG secured a 5-1 win against Lorient in their first game following the international break, bouncing back from their loss to Monaco, thanks to Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar’s goals.
The focus was on Mbappe, but Neymar’s two goals were crucial in sealing the victory and all three points at Parc des Princes.
The Brazilian netted the opener, and Mbappe’s spectacular strike put Pochettino’s side up 2-0 at the break.
Lorient only succeeded in getting a goal back after a better effort at the start of the second half.
The visitors’ goal came from Moffi, a 22-year-old Nigerian forward, although it was only a consolation goal after goals from Mbappe, Messi, and Neymar.
An awful pass from Hakimi saw Moffi pounce on loose ball before prodding the ball into the net, that’s been the problem for PSG all season too many individual errors at the back and that’s hurt them.
