Mbappe broke the jinx that had been necessary for him in the last four matches in the league and shook the net, opening the scoring in the tenth minute, before passing a decisive ball that was translated by Spaniard Carlos Soler into a second goal in the 31st minute, before the other Spaniard Fabian Ruiz scored the third goal in the 77th minute.

Mbappe, who consolidated his position at the top of the league's scorers list with eight goals, followed the same approach with his country during the international window, when he scored the winning and qualifying goals for the Euro Cup in Germany 2024 against the Netherlands 2-1, and then returned to shine in the friendly victory over Scotland 4-1, scoring a goal from a penalty kick with a decisive ball.

It was Saint Germain's second consecutive win after the first over Rennes, following their disappointing 0-0 draw with Clermont Ferrand, confirming their readiness for a difficult European qualification at home to Milan on Wednesday in the third round of the group stage of the Champions League competition.

Paris Saint-Germain tightened the noose on the former leader Monaco when he temporarily snatched the first place from him, raising his score to 18 points by one point ahead of the principality team, which hosts Metz on Sunday at the conclusion of the stage.

Paris Saint-Germain pressed from the very beginning and succeeded in snatching a penalty through Portuguese international striker Gonzalo Ramush, successfully beating Mbappe (10).

But Strasbourg equalized three minutes later with a header by South African libo muthiba from close range inside the empty goal (13), but he was canceled for offside after resorting to the Video Assistant Referee "VAR".

Paris Saint-Germain consolidated their lead with the second goal when Mbappe went deep into the area and passed a creeping ball that Soler followed from close range inside the goal (31).

Mbappe wasted two easy chances in the 42nd and 53rd minutes, similar to Bradley barkula, who was preferred by Spanish coach Luis Enrique to the winger Ousmane Dembele (35).

Ruiz struck the final blow for the guests with a wonderful individual effort inside the area after a pass from compatriot Soler (77).

And later nice plays for Marseille.

Sunday also sees Lorient with Rennes, Nantes with Montpellier, Lille with Brest, Toulouse with Rennes, Lyon with Clermont Ferrand.
