Monaco 3-2 Paris Saint-Germain: Fabregas penalty seals remarkable comeback


Kylian Mbappe looked to have set PSG up for a ninth consecutive Ligue 1 win, but Kevin Volland and Cesc Fabregas had other ideas.

Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain threw away a two-goal lead against Monaco as Kevin Volland's second-half brace and a late Cesc Fabregas penalty secured a remarkable 3-2 win at Stade Louis II on Friday. 

Thomas Tuchel's side had looked to be cruising to a ninth consecutive top-flight win thanks to Kylian Mbappe's double against his former side before the interval. 

Monaco were a team reborn in the second half, though, and claimed a stunning three points thanks to Volland's close-range strikes and Fabregas' 84th-minute spot-kick, with PSG's Abdou Diallo sent off in the penalty incident.
