Kylian Mbappe scored in the waning seconds of extra time to give PSG a well-deserving victory. Paris was down to 10 man and pressed against the wall after Neymar was dismissed in the 62nd minute when Mbappe once more saved the day.

After 14 minutes, Marquinhos scored the game’s first goal by eluding his defender and directing Neymar’s cross into the net. But in the 51st minute, to tie the game, the Brazil defender diverted Adrien Thomasson’s pass into his own goal. After receiving two bookings in two minutes—the first for a foul and the second for diving—Neymar was given the boot in the 62nd minute at Parc des Princes.

Ten days after France’s defeat by Argentina in the World Cup final in Qatar ended Mbappe’s chances of winning a second title, the 24-year-old was successful again as he converted a penalty after being fouled inside the area six minutes into stoppage time. PSG is in first place with 44 points, eight more than RC Lens, with a game left to play. But after playing one more game. Strasbourg is in position 19.

    Strasbourg will be missing Dimitri Lienard, Jean-Eudes Aholou, Nordine Kandil, Marvin Elimbi, Abdul Majeed Waris and Ismael Doukoure on Friday night.

    The home side did not pick up any new issues over Lille last time out, though, and it would not be a surprise to see the same starting XI take to the field for this contest.

    Kevin Gameiro has recorded nine league goals this season and will take to the field over his former club here. At the same time, there should also be another start for Ludovic Ajorque, who has netted 12 times in France’s top flight during the 2021-22 movement.

    As for PSG, Mauro Icardi, Julian Draxler, and Leandro Paredes are definitely out of the match through injury, while the visitors are also sweating on the fitness of Abdou Diallo.

    The champions will also be missing Idrissa Gueye through suspension, so there could be a spot in the middle of the park for Danilo alongside Marco Verratti.

    Gianluigi Donnarumma will be hoping to come back into the side among the sticks, while Georginio Wijnaldum, Juan, Bernat, and Ander Herrera are also options for change.

    Lionel Messi was on the scoresheet against Lens last weekend and will again feature alongside Neymar and Mbappe in the final third of the field.

    Throughout all contests, the two sides have faced off 70 times. With 38 victories under their belts, the hosts have dominated play against their eastern counterparts, as was to be expected. Strasbourg has played in 19 games, with 13 victories and 19 draws.

    The hosts are unbeaten in their last ten encounters with the guests and have won seven games. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in their previous four meetings.

    Across all competitions, PSG is unbeaten at home against Strasbourg, winning 27 of the 35 encounters.

    PSG has won all 24 of their Ligue 1 games, while Strasbourg has lost 15 of their previous 16 games in the league.

    In their last 13 home games against Strasbourg in all competitions, PSG has prevailed 12 times.

    With 43 goals scored in 15 games and nine goals allowed, the hosts hold the best offensive and defensive records in Ligue 1 this season.

    Since their 2-1 defeat to Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League last April, Les Parisiens have gone undefeated in their past 36 home games in all competitions.
