Paris Saint-Germain Lille goals 7-1
In order to extend PSG’s undefeated start to the season,
Kylian Mbappe scored the quickest goal in Ligue 1 history as PSG crushed Lille. The striker scored his team’s first goal in just eight seconds by latching onto Lionel Messi’s lovely through ball as the visitors cruised to a 7-1 triumph, scoring four goals before halftime.
The opening goal left Paulo Fonseca’s team stunned,
but they recovered and came near to tying the score a few times when Jonathan Bamba was denied by saves from Gianluigi Donnarumma. On the other hand, Messi found Nuno Mendes on the left, trotted onto the return pass,
and buried the ball into the far bottom corner to put them down 2-0.
PSG thrashed Lille with a goal from Kylian Mbappe,
the fastest in Ligue 1 history,
extending their unblemished record. After latching onto Lionel Messi’s brilliant through ball, the striker took just eight seconds to put his team ahead as the visitors cruised to a 7-1 triumph,
scoring four goals before halftime.
The first goal stunned Paulo Fonseca’s team,
but they recovered and came near to tying it a several times until Jonathan Bamba forced saves from Gianluigi Donnarumma. On the other hand, they found themselves 2-0 down after 27 minutes when Messi found Nuno Mendes on the left,
ran for the pass, and buried it in the far bottom corner.
Within minutes of the restart,
the visitors scored their fifth goal thanks to Neymar,
who had Mbappe to thank for an unselfish stepover in the area that enabled the ball to pass through to him. He then tucked the ball past a helpless Jardim into the far corner.
After Donnarumma had stopped Bamba’s initial shot,
PSG briefly lost focus, allowing Lille to score a consolation goal through Bamba,
who bundled over the line at the second try. However, the five-goal advantage was quickly reestablished when Neymar skillfully returned Mbappe’s assist,
flicking into the path of the striker who clattered into the goal.
And the lead would grow to six when Mbappe scored a hat-trick late to seal the victory.
Given that PSG has a history of making quick starts,
Lille should not have been as surprised as they were. They have now scored in the first ten minutes of a game four times in their past 12 games,
following goals from Messi (six minutes against Montpellier), Marquinhos (six minutes against Troyes),
and Neymar (six minutes against Clermont) at the tail end of last season.
K. Y. Mbappe (PSG). Since Messi, Neymar,
and Mbappe were all unplayable and scarcely made a mistake all night,
this could have been any of the front three.
But the French international takes the prize after scoring his 17th hat-trick for PSG and providing an assist. He started the destruction early and finished the scoring later, but his whole performance was spectacular regardless of how many goals he scored.
The striker connected flawlessly with his teammates the entire game, dismissing any rumours of a disagreement between himself and Neymar. He is basically unstoppable in this shape. Whether playing at home or in the Champions League,
it is really difficult to imagine how any defence could stop him.
STAR HAT-TRICK Paris Saint-Germain won 7-1 on Sunday as Kylian Mbappe tied a record in Ligue 1 by scoring in Lille after only eight seconds.

1992, except statisticians at MisterChip determined that Rio scored after 7.9 seconds as opposed to Mbappe’s 8.3.
Later, Mbappe missed an open goal after hitting the post,
but PSG dominated the only other team to win the French championship in the previous five seasons with goals from Messi, Achraf Hakimi, and Neymar before halftime.
This week, rumours of difficulties between Mbappe and Neymar,
two of PSG’s finest players, circulated but the Brazilian scored twice and Mbappe scored three times.
Early in the second half, Neymar added a fifth goal. Following Lille’s response from Jonathan Bamba, Mbappe scored twice,
both times being assisted by Neymar.
