The goal almost didn’t happen. In the 38th minute, Thomas Meunier picked up the ball after Mauro Icardi lost control and the Belgium international decided to play a quick pass over to Mbappé who was sprinting towards goal with a defender miles behind him.
The pass was dangerously close to Lopes in goal but Mbappé used his world-class speed to reach the ball first and his chip over the goalkeeper was perfectly taken to give PSG the 2-0 lead heading into the intermission.
Mbappé has now scored 15 goals in Ligue 1 this season and is tied with AS Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder for the most in the French league.
Angel Di Maria, the Ligue 1 leader in assists, scored in the 22nd minute to put PSG up 1-0.
