Kylian Mbappé became Paris Saint-Germain’s all-time record goalscorer as he scored the fourth in a 4-2 win over Nantes at the Parc des Princes.
The result sees Les Parisiens open up an 11-point lead at the top of the table.
Throughout the first 30 minutes, the Parisians were dominant and raced into a two-goal lead with Lionel Messi beating Nicolas Pallois to a deflected cross, before Jaouen Hadjam put the ball into his own net at the back post under pressure from Nordi Mukiele.
Prior to kick-off, Les Canaris had not scored a first-half away league goal in each of their last 13 matches, yet by the interval, they had two.
It was a Jekyll and Hyde opening period from the French champions – the question was, which would come out of the tunnel for the second half?
Ultimately, they were able to retrieve their form from the opening stages and retake the lead.
Danilo Pereira was this time the goalscorer, getting on the end of a Kylian Mbappé cross to power a header beyond Alban Lafont.
It looked as though Mbappé – who has 200 career goals for PSG – would have the opportunity to break Edinson Cavani’s leading tally for the club when a penalty was awarded after Hadjam tripped Mukiele.
