Warren Zaire-Emery scores as PSG go top with 3-0 win over Montpellier

Warren Zaire-Emery, the talented French midfielder wearing the number 33 jersey for Paris Saint-Germain, was in a jubilant mood as he celebrated scoring his team’s second goal in their recent clash against Montpellier Herault SC. The match took place at the iconic Parc des Princes Stadium in Paris on November.

With this convincing 3-0 victory, Paris Saint-Germain has now ascended to the top of Ligue 1, surpassing OGC Nice by a two-point margin. However, Nice will have an opportunity to retaliate when they face off against Rennes on Sunday.

The scoring commenced in the 10th minute when Lee Kang-in, representing PSG, found the back of the net. Kylian Mbappe’s intelligent movement in the penalty box diverted the attention of the defenders, creating space for Lee to receive a well-executed pass from Achraf Hakimi. The 22-year-old seized the opportunity and unleashed a powerful strike into the top corner.

Despite Montpellier’s promising start, PSG’s goal came as a surprise. As the game progressed, the visitors gradually faded away. Ousmane Dembele, in particular, showcased an impressive performance for the home team, but was unable to breach the defense of goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte. Mbappe also had a chance to score from a cleverly orchestrated corner, but unfortunately missed the target.

PSG maintained their dominance in possession throughout the second half. In the 58th minute, the spotlight fell on the 17-year-old prodigy, Warren Zaire-Emery, who has been flourishing in Ligue 1 this season. Zaire-Emery skillfully passed the ball to Dembele at the edge of the box, only to receive it back through a clever back-heel pass. The young midfielder then struck the ball with precision using the outside of his boot, leaving Lecomte completely bewildered.

Dembele played a crucial role once again in PSG’s third goal, executing a one-two with Hakimi on the right flank. Hakimi managed to find Vitinha on the edge of the penalty box, and the 23-year-old confidently fired the ball into the back of the net.

In the dying minutes of the match, Mbappe almost pulled off an extraordinary assist, flicking the ball on for Goncalo Ramos to score. However, the goal was disallowed as Ramos, on loan from Benfica, was deemed offside.

PSG’s dominant performance was evident in the match statistics, with the new league leaders boasting an impressive 73% possession.

Looking ahead, PSG’s next challenge will be against AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League group stage, a match that can be witnessed live on TNT Sports.
