Mbappe has been a great player for the club and his country, aside from his moral character. With Messi and Neymar, he has broken exceptional records this season.

The playmaker is giving everything he has to his team this year in an effort to make it successful.

How Mbappe Has Transformed PSG this Season

Mbappe has eight goals in Ligue 1 this year, with Neymar and Messi providing the most of the assists. The PSG assault now has additional sauce thanks to him, but the French Giant’s defense continues to be his only weakness.

If he continues in this vein, he might surpass Erling Haaland, who has 20 goals so far this year, to become the top scorer in Europe.

Mbappe’s top priorities are to win the Champions League and the World Cup, and he is eager to do so. The only thing that might prevent him from succeeding is if he avoids controversies.

The PSG team must win because a loss to Marseille would cause them to lose first place in the standings, which would be extremely disastrous for Christopher Gailter and his team.

Due to a red card, Sergio Ramos will not be playing, while Lionel Messi is now injured. The French winger is looking for a formation that will allow him to score enough goals.

He will be quite thrilled if Gailter starts a striker and places Mbappe on the left side of the field in order for him to explore.
