Kylian Mbappe: PSG striker smashes 45-year Ligue 1 record

  • Kylian Mbappe

Earlier in the match, Mbappe had won the penalty for Neymar's opener as the star duo combined for the record-breaking Ligue 1 leaders, who became the first side to have won all nine of their opening league matches in the history of France's top flight. "In the first half we suffered a bit but we managed to take control of the match and enjoy our quality on the field".

He might have finished with only one goal (a penalty) and an assist each, but he created much more than that, and Mbappe's wasteful finishing at times denied him tangible proof of that creativity.

"I know you're looking for a big headline but the team have suffered and it's everyone's efforts that have been rewarded".

And on such form, it surely won't be long until he is considered for the prestigious best player in the world accolade.

Neymar was equally complimentary in his post-match comments about Mbappe, saying: 'Kylian is a special guy, for whom I have a lot of affection. "Today was wonderful and we deserved to win".


It has been a sensational start for Thomas Tuchel in Ligue 1, and with records falling, the former Borussia Dortmund boss could be forgiven for assuming the title is already wrapped up.

Neymar stepped up and sent Lopes the wrong way with a stuttering run-up to score his 11th goal of the season. I am very satisfied because he has lost no confidence - he was magnificent. "With Neymar they were unsafe all the time". "I don't forbid anything", Mbappe said.

"I congratulate Lyon - they are a great team and they were excellent in the first half". The defence could and perhaps should have been punished a few times by the visitors, while the midfield missed Adrien Rabiot as chances to add further gloss to the score were missed.

Kimpembe dived in on Tanguy Ndombele and, despite initially awarding a booking, referee Antony Gautier overturned his decision after assessing the replays, brandishing a straight red card.

Regarding PSG cancelling as many as 100 season tickets in the wake of incidents surrounding the midweek clash with Red Star, Al-Khelaifi stressed the importance of safety at Parc des Princes to Les Parisiens' hierarchy. "Atmosphere is too, but safety is first and foremost".
