Mbappe displayed, the good behavior of Draxler, but also the shortcomings of the Parisian defense that Kimpembe symbolizes: find the peaks and failures of the editorial staff at the end of the meeting between PSG and Strasbourg (4-2).
He put the park’s Mbappe in his pocket
We could have feared the worst before the meeting. When announcing the squad formation, Kylian Mbappe was already whistled by part of the audience. But once the match started, the fans didn’t come forward. We particularly appreciate the performance of the French capital of the world champion. From the start, the striker hit his favorite left winger, inflicting damage on the Alsatian club and simply taking part in three of the four Parisian goals. Top scorer in a shot hit by Ajurki (25NS), then saw his forbidden position end at the feet of Draxler, the third scorer of the evening (27 .).NS). Decisive pass in Sarabia’s latest achievement (86NS), the international tricolor made a perfect start to his season.
Draxler has something to play for
The return of Neymar and Di Maria and the arrival of Messi will not give him much playing time this season. But Julian Draxler seems to want to fight to the end, contrary to what he has shown in the past. Interesting in Parisian actions with high-quality relays, the German was a decisive passer for Mbappe, and then top scorer. In addition to his stats, his technical quality was essential to dominating the Alsatians.
Icardi has recovered well
The Argentine is coming off a very disappointing season, but it looks like he’s back in better shape. Top scorer in Troy last week, he did it again in a good way by opening the scoring at 3NS Minutes on a good whim when the center of Diallo falls. More lively than before, the striker shared the pressure and at times combined well with his partners.

Not everything was perfect in Paris
In a slightly cheery park setting, we shouldn’t obscure everything in PSG’s first meeting in the can this season. Because defensively, the Parisian team still offers some rough estimates. As in Troyes last Saturday. Taking into account the disturbing performance of Captain Kimpembe, he is far from a blemish with regard to the two goals conceded. On the left, Diallo isn’t really on the side and blasted the hot pass (the critical pass) with the cold (the dangerous overpass). Overall, Pochettino has yet to find the right formula to balance his team. It is not the returns that will come that you should reassure him at this point.
Strasbourg woke up too late
The Alsatian club can regret not having enough ambitions. Because there was undoubtedly room for more concern about this race at PSG. In the first period, in a 5-3-2 system, the visitors looked spectators and took a long time to get the balls out cleanly, to start the balls. Their winning style in the second half should encourage them to the future as their faces looked sharper with two goals. So the awakening is too late.
