PSG broke a venerable record held by Tottenham since 1960 with a 2-1 win over Lille at the Parc des Princes on Friday evening.
The result ensured the Parisians of their 12th consecutive victory from the start of the season, thus bettering the run Spurs embarked upon at the beginning of the 1960/61 campaign – thus setting a brand new benchmark in Europe’s top five leagues.
It took until the 70th minute for the first goal to fly in, with Kylian Mbappe taking his total to 11 goals in eight appearances with a beautiful first-time strike from the edge of the Lille box…
Neymar then added a second for PSG (’84) before Nicolas Pepe dug out a late consolation for the visitors with a stoppage time penalty.
The win sees Thomas Tuchel’s side extend their lead at the Ligue 1 summit to 11 points, over Lille who lie a fair old distance away in second place.
