With only nine games on the schedule due to the Lorient vs Olympique Lyonnais ratio due to the condition of the Breton pitch, Ligue 1 has given us a day with plenty of goals but also draws. 28 goals in nine games and two spectacular encounters with Paris Saint-Germain winning 5-2 against Montpellier and the reversal of the situation from Clermont to Reims (2-4) made headlines for a second day of Ligue 1 which kept its promises. Zoom on the results of the weekend on all the lawns of the French football elite.
Ligue 1 results: Paris Saint-Germain correct Montpellier, Neymar back in favor
Highly anticipated after a first day without Kylian Mbappé, the match against Montpellier was both the first match at the Parc des Princes of the season but also the first opportunity to discover a typical team lined up by Christophe Galtier.
Facing eye-catching Héraultais, Kylian Mbappé misses a penalty shortly after the 20th minute of play and the Parisian supporters are released before half-time with a but against his side from Falaye Sacko (39th) and a penalty from Neymar (43rd ).
On returning from the locker room, it was once again Neymar who distinguished himself by nearly concluding yet another offensive from the capital’s players. Without a solution, Montpellier reduced the mark thanks to Khazri (58th) but Kylian Mbappé was responsible for sealing Montpellier’s hopes by scoring the 4-1 goal (69th). Renato Sanches will weigh down a mark also reduced at the very end of the match by Enzo Tchato (90th + 2) in a meeting where Paris will have dominated from the head and shoulders but without floating defensively against the Héraultais who made four shots on target.
Ligue 1 results: Clermont sparkles in Champagne
Led 2-0 after two penalties from Doumbia and Balogun before half an hour of play, the Auvergnats will nevertheless make the “comeback” of this day of the championship.
Emmanuel Agbadou excluded after returning from the locker room for a gross fault while a Clermontois left alone to challenge Pentz, it was the new recruit Andric who will allow the visitors to come back to score by scoring twice (51st, 62nd) before Muhammed Cham and Jérémie Bela did not come to seal the score of this meeting in five minutes. Clermont won in a very pleasant meeting where Reims continued to worry after their inaugural defeat against Marseille and eight goals conceded in two games.
