PSG were already leading 2-0 at the time after Mbappé followed his lead in the 16th minute with a tap-in in the 63rd minute, but clearly there were no misunderstandings between the PSG forwards and Predrag Rajkovic, the Reims goalkeeper who took his son to the court. pitch to take a picture with Messi full time.

It was a two-goal story against his own in Clermont's fourth week of match with Metz, as Ibrahima Niane managed to score on the far right side of the field from the penalty spot before the visitors doubled their advance thanks to a comedian goalkeeper error. Arthur Desmas.
However, Metz defender Sikou Niakate would soon feel the embarrassment of returning the ball to his own net just before half-time, and 13 minutes into the second half the ball would fall very well for Elbasan Rashani, who pushed at home to save a point and hold. His team's undefeated streak continues.
Continuing his momentum after his heroic two-goal performance against Lyon, Kosovar international Rashani enjoys life at the highest level, as does Clermont, who is unbeaten with eight points to show in his first four games.
Pascal Gastien's team remains in the top three of the standings thanks to their good start to the season, and Clermont won in their only previous encounter with PSG, winning on penalties in the round of 16 of the 1996-97 French Cup.
PSG's attack will be a far cry from the star-studded attacking force we will soon be used to seeing at the Parc des Princes, but Pochettino still relies on the world champions in midfield and defense this weekend. Clermont's remarkable start to the season is to be applauded, but we expect the newly promoted team to suffer their first loss in Ligue 1.
