Mbappe scores as PSG continues championship race


Strasbourg 1-4 PSG

Kylian Mbappe was on target as Paris St-Germain kept the pressure on Ligue 1 leaders Lille with victory at Strasbourg.

Mbappe opened the scoring with a low shot through Strasbourg goalkeeper Matz Sels’ legs.

Further goals from Pablo Sarabia and Moise Kean extended PSG’s lead before half-time.

Dion Moise Sahi pulled one back for Strasbourg, but Leandro Paredes completed the scoring late on.

Lille, who won 2-0 at Metz on Friday, remain three points clear of second-placed PSG at the top of the table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side host reigning European champions Bayern Munich in their Champions League quarter-final second leg on Tuesday, leading 3-2 from the first leg in Germany.
