  • Achraf Hakimi is becoming a great dead-ball specialist
  • The Paris Saint-Germain defender scored a spectacular free-kick to give his team the lead in the Classique Derby against Marseille
  • The Moroccan defender has now scored in PSG's last two games

Achraf Hakimi produced another moment of magic to give Paris Saint-Germain the lead against bitter rivals Olympique Marseille in Le Classique.

Luis Enrique's side entered the match looking to bounce back following last weekend's shock defeat at home to Nice.

The hosts started strongly and soon had the opportunity to open the scoring after Kylian Mbappe was fouled at the edge of the box.

The Moroccan stepped up to take the resulting free-kick, and he delivered, giving PSG a 1-0 lead in a highly anticipated Ligue 1 clash.

He struck the ball, which flew past Pau Lopez's top left corner, and he couldn't have hit it cleaner. Hakimi scored a spectacular free-kick during the 2022 AFCON against Malawi, and it seems he's developing a habit.

New signing Randal Kolo Muani scored his first goal for PSG to give the hosts a 2-0 lead at halftime. PSG will be looking to win their 14th match at home against Marseille in 16 games, per Soccerway.

Ousmane Dembele's incredible cross was headed in by new striker Goncalo Ramos to give the hosts a commanding 3-0 lead. Ramos scored his second in the 89th minute to give PSG a much-needed win after last weekend's frustrating defeat.

After six games, PSG have 11 points, two behind leaders Brest and one behind Nice, who are second in the table. However, the game was overshadowed by Kylian Mbappe's injury. The 2022 World Cup Golden Boot winner was subbed off in the 32nd minute and was replaced by Goncalo Ramos.

Hakimi donates blood

After parts of Morocco were hit by an earthquake, players of the Moroccan national team led the way by donating blood to victims of the devastating earthquake in early September.

The Moroccan national team has had its Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Liberia postponed due to the disaster, with players sending in their message of condolence to the affected families.

Hakimi and other players were pictured donating blood to help the victims.

Hakimi to lose something in divorce proceedings

At the same time, Sports Brief has reported that Hakimi is reportedly ready to lose his luxury car worth €300,000 to ex-wife Hiba Abouk.

The Moroccan defender recently went through a divorce with his former wife, who's an actress by trade.

Hakimi has been accused of abusing a young girl in Paris, so the actress decided to end her relationship with him.
