PSG - Metz - LIVE: Mbappé spoils Paris with a double, the match summary

Some people are given gifts and others prefer to give them themselves. This is the case of Kylian Mbappé who on his 25th birthday got carried away a nice double face &agrav; Metz to allow Paris Saint-Germain to sign their 12th victory of the season and maintain their five-point lead at the top of Ligue 1. At first little in sight like the rest of his team, the French international waited until the hour mark to remind him of the scorer that he is. Moments after missing a strike in a similar position, he received a ball near the left corner of the Metz area. Taking advantage of Nduquidi's very loose marking, he visualized his target and unleashed a dry shot with the right. It took off and dove again almost as quickly to come close to the bottom of Oukidja's crossbar before coming to shake the nets.

It must be said that the plan concoctedé by Laszlo Bölöni had worked perfectly; during the first act. Regrouped in its last 30 meters, its team was compact, closing the smallest spaces and offering no space for possible Parisian races. Better, she operated on the counter, relying on the speed of Van den Kerkhof but lacked the offensive weight to really prove dangerous.
