Forfeited on the first day of Ligue 1 because of a groin injury, Kylian MBappé will play his first match of the season tonight against Montpellier. With 28 goals last year, the PSG striker may want to beat his own record… or even that of Zlatan Ibrahimović, who scored 38 goals during the 2015-2016 season.
Forfeited for the first day of Ligue 1 due to an adductor injury, the Paris Saint-Germain striker will be on the lawn of the Parc des Princes this Saturday evening against Montpellier. Kylian MBappé will find a team that has already worked very well without him. 4-0 against Nantes in the Trophée des Champions. 5-0 against Clermont on the first day of Ligue 1… The native of Bondy will have to show his best football against Montpellier. If he wants to get to the level of his two attacking friends Neymar and Lionel Messi, both authors of three goals in their first two games, Mbappé will have to do as well, or even better, to meet the expectations of his extension in the capital club.
Beat Zlatan Ibrahimović’s record?
Data that absolutely does not worry PSG coach Christophe Galtier. “No fear of the fact that Kylian is quickly up to speed. After the duration of the match, we will see, but they are used to it. I have no worries on that side, they know each other perfectly, they knows how to play for each other and obviously it was a big added bonus to have Kylian with us.” A big asset with 28 goals and six assists in Ligue 1 last season. There is no doubt that Kylian MBappé will want to break his own record. And why not get that of a certain Zlatan Ibrahimović, author of 38 goals and thirteen assists during the 2015-2016 season.
