The leading team of Ligue 1, PSG had a 5-1 away win against defending champions Lille on Sunday night. The Parisians produced one of their best performances of the season, dominating every aspect of the game. Lionel Messi, who had only scored once in Ligue 1 before the game, was on the scoresheet, thanks to a first-half foul on goalkeeper Ivo Grbic.
The Argentina captain also had an assist for Presnel Kimpembe and could have had a brace but the crossbar. Mbappe is also in good form against Lille and scored a beautiful cut in the 67th minute to seal a bold victory.
In the match against Lille, the Argentine captain worked more focused on PSG and Mbappe insisted that was the most natural position for the 34-year-old player. Discussing his and Messi’s position on Amazon Prime Video (via GetFootballNewsFrance), Mbappe stated:
“Better with Leo in the middle? Yes, but I’m not a coach. Leo is a player who needs to have the ball, to feel the game and the match to participate. I think it’s a good position for him, he’s free, he can move around and take off.”
“Me, I can play anywhere. I started in the middle, then on the right and now on the left but I still have a certain freedom in my movements.”
The 23-year-old PSG player also spoke about making room for his now-recovering team-mate Neymar.
“We are fine like this but we will have to make room for Neymar, because he is an important player that changes our team. We will see what happens when he returns, and we hope he returns as soon as possible.”
Messi’s strike against Lille brought his season’s tally to seven, across competitions. On the other hand, Mbappe has 20 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions.
