Le Havre-PSG: 15th goal of the season in L1 for Mbappé who joins the Top 10 best scorers

This is already his 15th goal this season in Ligue 1, even though he has only played 13 matches. Kylian Mbappé struck again this Sunday afternoon. In the 23rd minute of the match between Le Havre and Paris Saint-Germain at Stade Océane, the captain of the Blues allowed his team to take the advantage, even when numerically inferior after the expulsion of Donnarumma.

Found by Ousmane Dembélé on a ball from the right, the number 7 and captain of the day recovered the ball at the entrance to the Le Havre area, surrounded by several defenders. Barely having the ball controlled, the French international unleashed a right shot just in front of the area, full axis. An ideally placed shot, since it hit Arthur Desmas’ right post, before finishing in the back of the net.

A liberating goal for the Parisians, who were playing 10 against 11 since the exclusion of Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 10th minute of play, for a completely missed outing against Josué Casimir.

Ninth top scorer in the history of the championship

For Kylian Mbappé, it is also a goal which allows him to enter a little further into the history of Ligue 1. At only 24 years old, the former Monegasque has officially entered the Top 10 of best scorers of the history of the French Championship. By scoring for the 179th time in the elite, he rises to 9th position, with as many goals as Carlos Bianchi and Gunnar Anderson.

He is still a long way from the absolute record of Delio Onnis, star of Reims, Monaco, Tours then Toulon in the first division between 1971 and 1986 who scored 299 times in the championship.
