Print Brace, Kylian Mbappe Set Record After Bringing PSG To Conquer AS Monaco

Suara.com – Kylian Mbappe’s new goal record colored Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) victory over AS Monaco with a score of 2-0 in the 18th week of the French League match at the Parc des Princes Stadium, Monday (12/13/2021) WIB.

Mbappe bought PSG’s two winning goals in that match to surpass his new record of 100 goals with Le Parisiens and make him the youngest player to reach that figure for a single club in the French League, aged 22 years and 357 days.

The PSG star scored his first goal with a 12th-minute penalty to open the scoring for the hosts after Lionel Messi was brought down by Djibril Sidibe inside the area.

Then Mbappe scored his second right at the end of normal first-half after picking up a pass from Messi and curling a curling shot into the far post to double PSG’s lead.

PSG actually had many opportunities to widen the margin of advantage after Mbappe set his record, one of which was when Messi had wide shooting space in the penalty box but his finish deviated from the target in the 71st minute.

In contrast, the struggling Monaco did little to create dangerous situations and only three shots on target were easily tamed by goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

This victory has strengthened PSG’s position at the top of the standings with a collection of 45 points, 13 points ahead of Marseille in second.

Meanwhile, Monaco, who had to give up their positive trend of five games without losing, are stuck in eighth place with 26 points after being overtaken by Montpellier the day before, according to a note on the French League’s official website as published by Antara.

The two teams will return to play on Wednesday (12/22) when PSG travel to Lorient and Monaco host Rennes at the Louis II Stadium.
