Mbappe, Neymar score hat-tricks in PSG’s big win
Neymar and Kylian Mbappe both scored hat-tricks as Paris St- Germain thrashed Clermont to extend their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to 15 points.
Within 20 minutes, the visitors had a two-goal lead, but Jodel Dossou pulled one back to cut the deficit in half.
A penalty by Neymar and Mbappe’s second of the night made it 4-1 before the Frenchman completed his treble with a beautiful finish.
Late in the game, Brazilian international Neymar scored his third goal of the night.
Lionel Messi also played a key role in the victory, assisting on PSG’s first, second, and fourth goals at the Stade Gabriel-Montpied.
Third-place Marseille, who play PSG in ‘Le Classique’ next weekend, can close the gap at the top of the league to 12 points if they beat Montpellier at home on Sunday.
