Neymar double lifts PSG to 3-2 win at Bordeaux
Paris Saint Germain stretched their advantage at the top of Ligue 1 to 10 points after two goals by Neymar and another from Kylian Mbappe helped them to a 3-2 win at Girondins Bordeaux on Saturday.
PSG, who carved out a 3-0 lead before late goals by Bordeaux set up a tense finish, have 34 points from 13 games, ahead of second-placed Lens who beat Troyes 4-0 at home on Friday.
Neymar struck twice in the first half thanks to a pair of sublime assists by France World Cup winner Mbappe. Mbappe made it 3-0.
The Brazilian muted his celebrations and took off his jersey to unveil a message on his shirt paying tribute to Brazilian country singer Marilia Mendonca, who was killed in a plane crash in the state of Minas Gerais on Friday.
Alberth Elis and M’Baye Niang netted for the hosts.
Mbappe acknowledged that PSG, who were missing Lionel Messi due to injury, were still a work in progress. “We need to improve and we will continue to work hard,” he said.
