(EFE) .- Paris Saint-Germain prolonged its immaculate career in the French championship, in which it counts its matches by victories, after beating Montpellier 2-0 this Saturday in a clash in which a few specific flashes of quality to win.
Despite not shining again, the talent that PSG treasures is such that it hardly needs a spark from one of its many stars, in this case the Senegalese midfielder Idrissa Gueye, who opened the scoring with a sensational goal, to resolve their encounters.
And that being chastened by the hardships suffered in the last two days to beat Metz (1-2) and Lyon (2-1), two crashes that did not go in favor of the Parisian team until the extension time, those of the Argentine Mauricio Pochettino seemed to come out ready to resolve the contest as soon as possible.
In fact, barely six minutes of play had elapsed when Paris Saint-Germain had already counted two clear chances to have advanced on the scoreboard in the boots of Neymar, who finished over the goal, and Kylian Mbappé, who ran into the inspired intervention of the Montpellier goalkeeper.
However, the Swiss goalkeeper Jonas Omlin could do nothing to avoid the goal of the Senegalese midfielder Idrissa Gueye who established the 1-0 after fourteen minutes with a spectacular left-foot from the edge of the area that slipped through the squad.
A goal that curiously seemed to relax Paris Saint-Germain that little by little allowed Montpellier to take possession of the ball, which ended up enjoying the ball more than its rival in the first half.
Possession, yes, sterile since Montpellier barely managed to disturb the goal of Costa Rican Keylor Navas, who once again defended the goal of the Parisian team.
A lethargy from which Pochettino’s men seemed to wake up with another distant shot, in this case from the Spaniard Ander Herrera, who crashed off the crossbar at 42 minutes.
All a sample of the offensive flow that Paris Saint-Germain treasures that does not need the contest of Neymar, Mbappé or the now absent Lionel Messi, who missed his second consecutive game due to the blow he suffered in the left knee against Lyon, to generate danger.
However, the Parisian team, perhaps thinking more about the Champions League match that will face Manchester City next Tuesday, seems determined to dose all the potential that is assumed.
A circumstance that did not prevent the locals from having the occasional occasion to sentence the contest as in a deflected shot by Neymar at 72 minutes, after receiving a good service from Ander Herrera.
But if Neymar was not correct before the goal, he was as an assistant, as he demonstrated in the 89th minute with a perfect pass to German Julian Draxler, who just seconds after entering the field signed the final 2-0.
A triumph that consolidated the leadership of a Paris Saint Germain that barely played eight days already had ten points ahead of the second classified, Olympique de Marseille, which has, of course, two games less than those of Pochettino.
