Paris-Saint-Germain and Kylian Mbappé, author of a double, reacted to the quack against Monaco by easily beating the last of the championship, Dijon (4-0), Saturday February 27 for the 27e Ligue 1 day, where Metz, winner in Bordeaux (2-1), climbs to 5e place.
After all these false notes against the Monegasques (0-2) six days earlier, the Parisians, Mbappé in the lead, resumed their score, with a fifth 4-0 in twelve confrontations against one of their favorite victims. The world champion signed his 17th and 18the goals of the season to bring PSG back to second place, one point behind Lille, which receives Strasbourg on Sunday. Paris double Lyon, expected at the Vélodrome for the shock of the day, an “Olimpico” against a Marseille who has just changed both president and coach.
The Italian Moise Kean launched the prelude to the new fall of Dijon and the Portuguese Danilo Pereira countersigned him with his first goal in L1 (82e). With this eighth defeat in a row in all competitions, the DFCO is heading for relegation. The Burgundians are eight lengths behind Nantes (18e) and Lorient (19e).

The match played at a very slow tempo remained very far from the intensity that awaits the Parisians in the Champions League for the 8e second leg against Barcelona on March 10.
Bordeaux sinks against Metz

Hatem Ben Arfa’s entry at the end of the match, completely transparent, did not change anything.
Metz took the opportunity to take the 5e place, in a position to qualify for the Europa League, thanks to a second period played crescendo. The Garnets had logically equalized on a strike enveloped in Thierry Henry of Thomas Delaine (72e).
