Neymar and his teammates appear to be posing for a photo, only to realise that the Brazilian was in fact shooting a video. They were caught in a prank. After the players realised the prank, they erupted in laughter.
Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring for the Parisians in the 24th minute of the game, after receiving a swift pass from Di Maria. Neymar doubled PSG’s lead in the injury time of the first half after converting from the spot.
In the 72nd minute, Pablo Sarabia (who was introduced as a substitute) scored the third for the team, hitting a volley into the net. Tiemoue Bakayoko scored one for Monaco after the ball ended in the six-yard box from a free-kick. Keylor Navas was unable to comprehend the situation in the 87th minute. However, Mbappe scored his second of the night in the injury time of the game. The Parisians displayed their counter-attacking prowess. PSG lead in Ligue 1 with 49 points in 20 games.
