Ligue 1: Monaco shook PSG, Mbappé (again) replaced

No goal or winner for Louis II. Monaco and PSG failed to decide between themselves (0-0) this Friday, during the first match of the 24th day of Ligue 1. A clash between the third in the standings and the leader. Status quo on this side. A match initially outrageously dominated by the locals, before seeing the Parisians regain some color after the break... and the exit of a certain Kylian Mbappé. Man of the match? Gigio Donnarumma, imperial.

As is often the case, PSG was quick to take control in terms of possession. But the opportunities were Monegasque, Donnarumma multiplying the parades. First against Balogun (5th), then Minamino (16th). The Italian goalkeeper still had to pull out all the stops against Akliouche (29th). Lots of space at the back of PSG's experimental defense, with a Mukiele/Beraldo hinge due to the packages of Marquinhos and Danilo. Paris imprecise, rushed and very low. Opposite, Majecki, new asemist number 1, was not to be outdone. He intervened on this shot from Asensio following a delicious deflection from Mbappé (22nd). The Pole was, however (much) less in demand than his transalpine colleague. Ben Yedder, who thought he scored before seeing that the referee had raised his flag (25th), still had two good situations (42nd, 43rd). Not as beautiful as that of Akliouche, served at the penalty spot and disgusted by Donnarumma (45 1), great man of the first act (0-0 MT).

Beyond the difficulties encountered by his players, despite their 68% possession before the break, “Lucho” also had to deal with the injury of Asensio (39th), replaced by Barcola. Surprise at the start, with a new change, and not the least: Mbappé replaced by Kolo Muani. A blow ? A Luis Enrique pick? According to various sources, the second option is the correct one. The native of Paris is absolutely not affected.

One thing is certain: after ten more complicated minutes, the Parisians came out of their box and showed themselves to be more and more dangerous. Beraldo (59th), Barcola (62nd, 67th) and even Vitinha (74th) sent shivers through the spans of Louis II. Kehrer saved the Monegasque house at the feet of Kolo Muani (65th). Danger on Majecki's goal, almost as brilliant in this second half as Donnarumma in the first. Which Donnarumma read well this long ball towards Akliouche (66th) and even more so the one towards Balogun (88th). We felt the former Milan goalkeeper gaining momentum in recent weeks. He did better than confirm this impression on Friday evening in the Principality. More tonic, better in place, the Parisians in any case had a good second half, without Mbappé. The draw (0-0) is fair, even if the Monegasque chances were worse than the Parisian ones.
