The goals came courtesy of Kang-In Lee at the 10-minute mark, Zaire-Emery in the 58th minute and Vitinha in the 66th minute. Lee's goal, his debut score in Ligue 1, came off a pass from Mbappe, putting PSG in the driving seat early in the game.
The first half was marked by PSG's dominance, but it wasn't until the second half that Zaire-Emery found the back of the net, extending their lead. This was made possible by an excellent pass from Dembélé, who also played a strategic role in setting up the third goal, first passing to Hakimi, who then served an assist to Vitinha.
