Mbappe's double, Messi & Neymar's goal guided PSG beat Lille by 4-3

 

With a double from Kylian Mbappé and goals from Leo Messi and Neymar, PSG beat Lille 4-3 and won again on the French league's 24th match day. The Argentine star masterfully executed a free kick that gave his side PSG victory and saved their coach's skin.

After 12 minutes, after a long pass from Neymar, the french man Mbappé got rid of two players in the area one with a spout included and defined against the goalkeeper for 1-0 in the Parc des Princes. After a great action by the Parisian team, at minute 17, the Brazilian striker increased the lead for the locals after an assist from Vitinha.

Bafodé Diakité deflected a centre and put the discount for the visitors, who shortened the distance on the scoreboard. The goal came after 23 minutes. After a controversial action in the area, the referee awarded a penalty and, without a VAR review, Canadian Jonathan David made it 2-2 after 57 minutes. At minute 69, after an error by the PSG defense after a long qualifying, Jonathan Bamba hit the near post and beat Donnarumma to make it 3-2.

The table topper, PSG was looking for an equalizer, but couldn't find a way until an action ended with a pass from Bernat behind so that the attacker the 24-year-old Mbappé defined the near post of the rival goalkeeper. The goal came after 87 minutes. In stoppage time, at minute 94, the world champion appeared with the Argentine team to make it 4-3 for PSG. From a free kick to the goalkeeper's stick, the number 30 of the Parisians rubbed the lamp.

"'Ney' has sprained his ankle. We will see how serious it is. We don't know yet -- he is undergoing tests at the moment," said PSG coach Christophe Galtier, who also saw left-back Nuno Mendes come off in the first half with an ankle ligament injury that the coach insisted "doesn't seem too serious. I hope 'Ney' is going to come back quickly because he is an important player for us," added Mbappe about his Brazilian teammate. We came through it. It wasn't a great performance," Mbappe told the broadcaster.

"We made lots of mistakes and lost concentration too often and against a quality side you pay dearly for that, but we showed that even when we are not at our best and the context is not exactly favourable we are a different team with different players and we can always find a way."
