Pays de Cassel-PSG (0:7): Mbappe writes a new moment in history

He was the only one who could make celebration and defeat go hand in hand. To put to sleep what the Pays de Cassels and part of Flanders dreamed of in the sun, without arousing anyone’s anger, but arousing even greater admiration of all, his opponents, as well as all those who came to support them. Out of Bollaert’s 38,000 spectators, to all the members of the modest R 1 formation, whose dreams of glory he showered almost single-handedly (0-7), in any case, Kylian Mbappe did not receive only respect, positive waves and demonstrations of surprise. this Monday, January 23rd in the evening in Lens.

This round of 16 looks like a shock to the worlds, so uninteresting as it promised to be a formality for the Parisian giant, the France star simply turned it into a special moment unique in the history of PSG. competition.

The story doesn’t say if any pre-match magic, when speaking his name turned whistles into applause, affected his evening’s performance. Having inherited the captain’s armband for the first time against PSG, he was given wings to make his 240th PSG appearance an almost moonlit encounter.

The only certainty is that he, who has not yet scored in an official match in 2023 and, moreover, conceded only to defeats in France (3: 1 in Lens and 1: 0 in Rennes), swept away all the bad news from the very beginning. years in ninety minutes.

Hat-trick in 11 minutes… at the start

As if a hat-trick signed in just eleven minutes (29th, 35th, 41st) after his team’s slow first half-hours wasn’t enough to make him a hero of the first period, as if his pass was decisive for Neymaru ( 33rd) was still not enough to set the mood, the Parisian number 7 remained at his pace after returning from the locker room.

Minutes after he took the break to give his jersey to Alexis Zmiyak, Kassel captain and member of the Paris ultras team, Kylian Mbappé is back on the pitch to become even more of a legend.

By scoring two extra goals against the unfortunate Romain Samson, who had already stunned the world by signing a December 18 hat-trick against Argentina in Qatar, he was again juggling the numbers. This Monday, Kylian Mbappe, at the age of 24, became the first player in the history of PSG to score five goals in an official match.

Paulet ahead, draw with JPP

With 29 goals in the French Cup (2 for Monaco, 27 for PSG), he overtook Pauleta to join Jean-Pierre Papin as the tournament’s top scorer. He, who currently has 27 points with PSG, is only slightly behind François M’Pelé (28), the club’s top director in the competition.

Having scored 196 goals in all competitions since arriving in the capital in 2017, he is breaking Cavani’s record of 200 goals with lightning speed. In this context, the completely crazy month of February, during which Paris will play OM, Monaco, Bayern, Lille and OM again in succession, is already salivating.
