Paris Saint-Germain are just one step away from the league title with three rounds to go in Ligue 1. Kylian Mbappé’s two goals sent Ajaccio into the second league. In particular, the second goal of the French canon was really worth it as he showed unprecedented orientation and sent the ball into the net from a volley.
Paris Saint-Germain, after being knocked out of the cups, are struggling only on the league front. Although Christophe Galtier’s players had a comfortable lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table, unexpected home defeats made the end of the season difficult for them.
In the penultimate home game of the season, PSG’s star players were targeting only the mandatory three points. They should have brought them just one step closer to the league title. Ajaccio stood in the way of this goal and needed to score points to have a theoretical chance of staying in the top French football competition.
Lionel Messi returned to the squad after being punished by the club’s management for an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia. He has been experiencing criticism from his own fans in the French capital in recent weeks. But the star Argentine’s return has been overshadowed by the performance of teammate Kylian Mbappé.
The home side struck with two goals in the first half, with Fabián Ruiz and Achraf Hakimi scoring consecutively. But in the second half, it was Mbappe’s turn to make the difference with two goals.
His second goal in particular, which gave his team a four-goal lead, was really worth it. After a beautiful pass by Sergio Ramos, Mbappé was hit by the head of the visitors’ defender, but he was perfectly oriented and sent the ball into the opponent’s goal.
The beautiful goal was applauded in the stands by his injured teammate, Brazilian Neymar, whose season ended in February due to an ankle injury. The PSG players added a fifth goal and moved closer to the French title after a five-goal demolition.
