Kylian Mbappé Scores Two Goals on His 25th Birthday to Lead PSG to Victory

Paris Saint-Germain secured a 3-1 win over Metz on Wednesday, with Kylian Mbappé stealing the show as he celebrated his 25th birthday. The French star not only scored two impressive goals but also made way for his 16-year-old brother Ethan Mbappé to make his league debut as a stoppage-time substitute. This special moment added an extra layer of celebration for the talented footballer.

Mbappé’s incredible performance extends his league-leading tally to 18 goals and his overall season total to 21. Since joining PSG from Monaco in 2017, he has netted a club record of 233 goals in 282 appearances. However, looming uncertainty surrounds the player as his contract expires at the end of the season, prompting speculation about whether he will sign an extension or consider a move to Real Madrid.

The impactful game against Metz saw Portugal midfielder Vitinha provide a crucial assist for Mbappé’s second goal, showcasing the unstoppable force of the PSG squad. A brief moment of concern arrived when Metz managed to secure a goal, but Mbappé capitalized on a defensive error to seal PSG’s victory with a third goal.

The win places PSG in the lead with a five-point advantage heading into the winter break. Second-place Nice also managed to maintain their position with a 2-0 win over Lens.

With a remarkable individual performance from 20-year-old Mali midfielder Kamory Doumbia, Brest secured a 4-0 home win over Lorient, solidifying their status as a surprise contender this season. On the other hand, Lille suffered a 2-1 loss to Strasbourg, causing them to drop down to fifth place.

As the league comes to a brief pause, fans are left eagerly awaiting the action’s return on January 12th.
