Paris Saint-Germain concluded its career in 2022 with an exciting 2-1 victory over its guest Strasbourg, today, Wednesday, in the 16th round of the French League.

Marquinhos scored the first goal for Paris in the 14th minute, then the same player added the equalizing goal by mistake in the 51st minute, before Mbappe grabbed the winning goal in the minute (90 + 6).

Paris raised its tally to 44 points to fly away at the top of the league, while Strasbourg’s tally froze at 11 points in the penultimate position.

The Parisian giant started its first match after the 2022 World Cup with an ideal scenario, as it advanced with an early goal after a quarter of an hour, scored by Marquinhos after a free kick executed by Neymar.

The Paris stars found an easy way to the Strasbourg goal, but Kylian Mbappe missed more than one opportunity to advance.

The Parisian team did not notice the danger and conceded the equalizer after Marquinhos accidentally converted the ball into his own net after Adrian Thomason shot.

Things were made worse by Neymar getting two yellow cards in less than two minutes, so Saint-Germain completed the meeting with ten players since the 63rd minute.

Saint-Germain coach Christophe Gallete rushed to save the situation with more than one substitution to revitalize the ranks and compensate for the numerical shortage, as he involved Serbia and Soler, then Ashraf Hakimi.

On the other hand, Kylian Mbappe continued the series of wasting opportunities in front of the Strasbourg goal, whether before Neymar was sent off or after the departure of the Brazilian star.

In the final seconds of stoppage time, the referee awarded a penalty kick after blocking Mbappe, which the French star successfully translated, giving his team 3 precious points.
