Unstoppable Mbappe puts PSG on brink of Ligue one title


Kylian Mbappe scored two and assisted another to take Paris Saint-Germain within one win of a third-straight Ligue 1 title.

Ousmane Dembele opened the scoring for the league leaders with a winding run and fine left-footed finish. Mbappe joined him on the scoresheet soon after, with a deft flick rolling into the bottom corner - although no-one was quite sure he meant it. The two combined for the Parisian third, as Mbappe produced an outrageous assist after a sublime piece of skill to had his team-mate an easy tap-in. And the captain added a fourth late on, a signature curler to turn a win into a rout. Lorient pulled one back - but did little else other than spoil a Parisian clean sheet.
