PARIS – Paris St Germain's formidable attacking trio sprung into life after the break to give the Ligue 1 leaders a 3-1 comeback win at 10-man Montpellier on Saturday.
Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi found the back of the net in the space of eight minutes after Montpellier's Pedro Mendes was sent off in the 72nd minute as the French champions extended their lead at the top to eight points.
PSG have 39 points from 16 games with second-placed Olympique de Marseille on 31, after a match that was interrupted for a few minutes when visiting keeper Keylor Navas was hit in the head by a bottle thrown from the stands.
Montpellier, who opened the scoring in the first half courtesy of a Leandro Paredes own goal, are eighth on 24 points from 17 games.
In-form Angel Di Maria started on the substitutes' bench with coach Thomas Tuchel fielding Mbappe, Neymar and Icardi up front.
