The Canal + camera was not mistaken on Saturday August 14 when it landed on the giant screen during the traditional presentation of the teams for this second day of Ligue 1 between Strasbourg and PSG, a first at the Parc Princes with the public since February 2020. The name of Kylian Mbappé was accompanied by many whistles from 47,900 spectators who came to fill the Paris region.

Walled in a heavy silence in recent days as he entered his last year of contract and as corridor noise begins to annoy about a likely departure this summer, the French striker responded to critics on the ground .

Under the eyes of Lionel Messi and Neymar, in the stands, the Parisian star was decisive. From the 13th minute, he started his festival on his left wing with a good cross taken by Hakimi but stopped by Djiku. Ten minutes later, it is alone that he manages by releasing a heavy shot deflected in his goal by Ajorque. The engagement barely whistled, it is Perrin who suffers the speed of Mbappé before the latter crosses for Draxler: 3-0.

If the French striker will come up against twice in the second period on an excellent Matz Sels, it is again he who extinguishes the last hopes of Strasbourg by delivering a new decisive pass for Pablo Sarabia on yet another urban rodeo on its left side. No pout, no quick start to the locker room, Mbappé’s performance is punctuated by a last well thought out action by going to thank the supporters. For the rest, he will still have time to think about it.
