Fabregas caps stunning comeback to stun the Champions PSG

Leaders Paris Saint Germain saw a two-goal half-time lead go up in smoke as they lost 3-2 at Monaco in Ligue 1 on Friday ahead of a crucial Champions League game against RB Leipzig.

Cesc Fabregas gave the hosts all three points with a penalty six minutes from time to end PSG’s eight-game winning run in the league and complete a stunning turnaround.

Mbappe, back with PSG since picking up a thigh injury against Nantes on Oct. 31, struck first in the 25th minute with a shot into the top corner after showing the Monaco defence a clean pair of heels.

Mbappe scored his second 8 minutes before half time, powering past Mannone from the spot after Youssouf Fofana had fouled Rafinha while attempting to block a cross.

Navas made a wonderful save after the restart to keep out Volland’s header from a corner, but there was little he could do to prevent the German tapping home to reduce the deficit after 52 minutes.

Volland then drew Monaco level in the 65th minute, tapping into an empty net after substitute Fabregas had clipped across the face of goal after a move involving Aurelien Tchouameni.

Monaco sealed the most unlikely of three points six minutes from time when Fabregas slammed in from 12 yards after Diallo had lost possession and brought down Volland inside the area.

Monaco are now second in the standings with 20 points from 11 games, four behind PSG, who host Leipzig in Group H on Tuesday trailing the German side and Manchester United by three points.
