Kylian Mbappe’s two goals against his former club were not enough as French Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain lost a 2-0 lead lose 3-2 in Monaco

Mbappe’s brace in the first half brought him to 99 goals for PSG since joining Monaco three years ago

German striker Kevin Volland scored twice after the break and was fouled by center-half Abdou Diallo for a penalty converted by midfielder Cesc Fabregas in the 83rd

The defeat was PSG’s third of the season and ended an eight-game winning streak after losing its first two games

Monaco has moved up to second place, four points behind PSG, despite being without top scorer Wissam Ben Yedder as he recovers from the coronavirus

Another comfortable victory for PSG looked at the cards as Mbappe managed a nice pass from winger Angel Di Maria and finished confidently in the 24th minute

The French striker then beat goalkeeper Vito Mannone on the spot in the 36th after midfielder Youssouf Fofana escaped a penalty

Forward Moise Kean and Mbappe had goals ruled out for offside shortly before the break, and Monaco pulled one out in the 51st when Volland pushed Fofana’s cross off from the right

Volland jumped again in the 64th when Fabregas put him at close range and Fabregas landed a shot 10 minutes later as Monaco found other equipment

In Friday’s other game, Rennes missed the opportunity to move up to second after losing at home to Bordeaux 1-0 with winger Hatem Ben Arfa punishing his former team with the only goal

Ben Arfa, who scored nine goals for Rennes two seasons ago, struck in the 36th after passing three defenders on the left and slamming a diagonal shot

It was the former French international’s seventh career goal against Rennes, his best against any team
