With a 5-star Mbappé, PSG rushes towards OM


Until half an hour into the game, PSG was far from mastering the debates, undermined by the low block of the evening premises. Well surrounded, Kylian Mbappé ended up taking the measure of the opposing defense, before shattering it. Because as often with Mbappé, it goes quickly, much too quickly: eleven minutes, top time.

The capital’s number 7 was a bit lucky at first, with a close shot deflected by a defender (29′), while Cassel goalkeeper Romain Sanson seemed on the path. Then, selflessly, he signaled himself with a classy one-two in the area, concluded by Neymar (33′) after a series of dribbles which put four defenders in the wind. Mbappé then did not need anyone to talk about his speed and his technique. Perfectly launched from his camp by Danilo Pereira, he was able to lob Samson in full control for the 3-0 (34′), before re-offending in a similar position six minutes later (40′) with another well-executed transition.

First player in PSG history to score a quintuplet

Three goals and an assist, Paris would be able to breathe in the second period, its star with. But Kylian Mbappé was not satisfied, far from it. “We are happy, we came here to qualifyhe reacted to BeIN Sports after the meeting. We also came to respect this team, which says respect, says play at our level. That’s what we did today.” So Mbappé continued to press the accelerator. Irresistible, he added a fourth goal (56′), taking advantage of Romain Sanson’s totally missed outing. Then a fifth, at the reception at the far post of an impeccable cross from Carlos Soler (78 ‘).

Kylian Mbappé had never scored five goals in a professional match (two quadruplets). Nor had Paris Saint-Germain ever seen one of its players sign such a performance, since its creation in 1975. “Kylian is obsessed with the goal, with the attackrejoiced Christophe Galtier at BeIN Sports. He is in his standards, last year he had already scored a lot of goals. It was important for him, and for Neymar, to play the whole match.“Especially since the Parisian coach clarified that Mbappé was now the vice-captain of his squad, a sign of his still growing weight outside the field.

Certainly, the adversity was much less than usual, against the formation of the sixth division of the country of Kassel. But Mbappé gave the change in stratospheric proportions. “It allows us to remember that we too come from amateur football, that we have been able to keep these values ​​which have brought us to the highest level.continued the interested party to BeIN Sports. It’s important to have that bond with them, even if it’s just for one game. The Coupe de France is very important for Paris Saint-Germain.

Kylian Mbappé now has 29 units in his career in the Coupe de France, equaling the record in the competition of Jean-Pierre Papin. A mark that he could now break, on February 8 at the Vélodrome, on the lawn of Olympique de Marseille, dear to “JPP”. Another record is also approaching high speed since with 196 goals, he is only four points behind Edinson Cavani as the top scorer in the history of Paris Saint-Germain. And he probably won’t wait for the next Cup round to achieve that if the opportunity arises.
