French league. Saint Germain consolidates its lead with three in Ajaccio

Paris Saint-Germain solidified their lead in the French football league with a 3-0 win over Ajaccio at the start of Stage 12 on Friday.

Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring for the capital club in the 24th minute, after a cross from Argentinian Lionel Messi who scored a second goal in the 79th minute before Mbappe returned to add a third in the 82nd minute.

With this tenth league win against two draws, Saint-Germain increased their lead to 32 points, leading six points behind nearest rival Lorient, while Ajaccio remained in 18th place with eight points.

It is worth noting that with his ninth and tenth goals, Mbappe topped the list of the league’s top scorers this season.

This Saint-Germain victory is a “rehearsal” for the European thanks to his guest Maccabi Haifa in the fifth round of the Champions League group stage.

The French club, owned by Qatar, leads their eighth group with 8 points, equal with Portugal’s Benfica, who have set a 1-1 draw back and forth.

Saint-Germain can qualify for qualification if they beat the lower Maccabi (3 points), while Benfica will have a difficult confrontation with their third Italian guest, Juventus, who also scored 3 points.
