It was a memorable week for Kylian Mbappe. He scored one and set another up for a 4-1 win to inspire Paris Saint-Germain at Strasbourg when the Lille’s league 1 lead was reduced by the French champions to three points on Saturday. Mbappe opened the scores with Pablo Sarabia, Moise Kean, and Leandro Paredes and took the capital side from 32 games on 66 points.
In the match, PSG played without Neymar, who was suspended, and also Marquinhos for his muscle injury when Marco Verratti was yet not out of isolation after testing positive for Covid-19. Idrissa Gueye, Julian Draxler, and Angel Di Maria were there on the bench. On 16 minutes, they went ahead when Mbappe, the top scorer of the league, beats Matz Sels for his season’s 21st goal, with an angled shot.
