    Goals in each half of Sofia Diop and Guillermo Maripan gave Monaco a 2–0 win over PSG on Sunday.

    The hosts looked in a strange mood, losing to Barcelona with a comprehensive defeat.

    However, it was Monaco that drew the first six minutes of fixed blood. The move from a well-to-do team saw Kaio Heinrich send a cross-field ball to the right wing, which was headed back into the area by Ruben Egiller.

    Sophiaan Dip made no mistake, leaving Keylor Navas six yards from his header with no chance.

    Visitors kept asking all the questions in the first half, which saw PSG struggling to get out of the box. Navas was called into action several times while the hosts did not take a shot in the 40th minute with a speculative effort from Idrissa Guey.

    Once again, it took just six minutes for Monaco in the second half and doubled its lead in the classic case of lightning twice.

    A good ball in the area was not properly cleared by Ander Harera. Meripan showed great awareness to control the ball, despite Harera’s touch taking him back a bit.

    Any striker would have been proud of how Maripan found the bottom corner from a stable position with a one-time finish.

    The introduction of Marco Verati, just after the goal, helps PSG gain the upper hand in the game. Although they were still struggling to contain their forwards, Moise Keane was the only bright spark for the hosts.

    Monaco went on to win to ensure they double the capital side.

    The win moves the Principal Outfit to 4th place on the table. Here, we will highlight five talking points from fixation.
