Will Mbappe and Neymar flourish together this season for PSG? Paris (AFP) – Kylian Mbappe will be the focus of attention as Paris Saint-Germain aim to continue their perfect start to the season in Sunday’s trip to Lille in Ligue 1. Mbappe’s every gesture will be scrutinised and every move analysed after the World Cup winner’s attitude created headlines for the wrong reasons in his first appearance of the season last weekend. After missing the opening two games, one in the league, due to suspension and then injury, the France striker returned and scored in a 5-2 win over Montpellier. Yet he also had a penalty saved and then appeared to try, unsuccessfully, to persuade Neymar to give him the ball when PSG were awarded another spot-kick.
In what was his first competitive game since the confirmation after last season that he was staying in Paris rather than joining Real Madrid, Mbappe cut a frustrated, unhappy and even isolated figure. That has raised doubts in France that Mbappe, Neymar and Lionel Messi can flourish together. Last season, Mbappe was PSG’s outstanding performer, scoring 39 goals in all competitions, while Neymar and Messi struggled for form and fitness. Yet the two South Americans have seemed rejuvenated this season, with the Brazilian in particular impressing, scoring five goals in three games. “He is really happy, ” said midfielder Marco Verratti of Neymar, who insisted last month that he wanted to stay in Paris amid speculation that the club wished to sell. “I think with the players we have, when you see that they are happy, they transmit that to everyone else.
In addition, they have managed to retain the pearl, Kylian Mbappé. París Saint Germain has nine consecutive wins and their last defeat came on March 20 when they lost to Monaco. The Parisian club was Ligue 1 champion with 86 points and 15 points ahead of second-placed Marseille, and in the Coupe de France they were eliminated in the round of 16 by Nice in a penalty shootout and in the same round they were eliminated by Real Madrid in the Champions League.
