Kylian Mbappé Scores Last Minute Winner Against Real Madrid

Kylian Mbappé Scores Last Minute Winner Against Real Madrid

Kylian Mbappé may well be a Real Madrid player come the summer, but last night he showed up for Paris Saint-Germain once again.

The 23-year-old helped his side to, what could potentially be, a huge advantage in their bid to progress in the UEFA Champions League.

After Lionel Messi had his second half penalty saved by Thibaut Courtois, it looked as though the game could be edging toward a goalless finish.

But Mbappé produced the kind of magic this UCL tie needed to capitalise on PSG’s dominant performance.

In the final minute of stoppage time, the Frenchman cut in from the left, beat two Madrid defenders and slotted past the keeper to give PSG the advantage going into the second leg.

Mbappé’s heroics mean Madrid have a big job on their hands when they welcome them for the second leg.

Though with the away goal rule being scrapped this season, they may feel it is more of a hurdle than a mountain to climb at home. The second leg is set for March 9.

Elsewhere in the UCL, Man City thrashed Sporting Lisbon five goals to nil away from home.

Liverpool take a 2-0 advantage into their second leg tie with Inter Milan, while it’s all to play for between RB Salzburg and Bayern Munich as their first leg ended all square.
