Mbappe was denied a hat-trick when he netted just before half-time only to be denied by VAR, before Volland gave Monaco a lifeline after 52 minutes and then brought the hosts level midway through the second period. 

The comeback was complete when Volland was brought down by Abdou Diallo, who was red-card. Up stepped Fabregas, who made no mistake from 12 yards and took the principality side up to second, four points behind PSG.
