Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe may have just begun to turn the corner on his recent goal-scoring woes. After scoring against Nimes Olympique in PSG’s last fixture, Mbappe has now added another goal to his Ligue 1 tally this season with a score against Olympique de Marseille.
With Mbappe trailing into Marseille’s defensive third, he received the ball and continued his run into the penalty box. From there, it was all Mbappe as he scored a simplistic chip goal to give PSG the 1-0 lead in the rivalry clash.
