Paris St-Germain beat Monaco to stay top

Paris St-Germain beat Monaco 5-2 to go four points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

Goncalo Ramos put the hosts ahead, but Gianluigi Donnarumma’s clearance fell to Takumi Minamino and he levelled.

Kylian Mbappe’s converted penalty restored the lead for PSG, who scored twice more in the second half through Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha.

Folarin Balogun scored for Monaco, but Randal Kolo Muani added PSG’s fifth.

Mbappe’s goal against his former side was his 14th of the season in the league and came after Soungoutou Magassa fouled Dembele in the 18-yard box.

Ramos had earlier benefitted from a mistake from away goalkeeper Philipp Kohn to score only a few days after his long-term future was secured.

Two goals in the space of three second-half minutes – Dembele finishing from Fabian Ruiz’s pass and Vitinha’s excellent curled strike that went in off the post – took the game away from Monaco.
