For the second match in a row, Kylian Mbappé scored an unusual goal for Paris Saint-Germain.
In the 8th minute, PSG pushed forward, with Vitinha attempting a cross into the Troyes box. The pass took a deflection and hit the crossbar. As the Troyes defenders looked on helplessly, Mbappé jumped to meet the ball and scored an easy header to put PSG up 1-0 over the hosts.

With Lionel Messi out due to suspension and Neymar Jr. out injured, Mbappé has to carry the scoring load for PSG and so far, he seems up for the task.
