Mbappé with PSG ripe for the next big step

Kylian Mbappé laughed at the relaxed warm-up program of the star ensemble of Paris Saint-Germain.

Five days after his goal gala in the quarter-final first leg at FC Bayern, the World Cup champion, who was still wearing a cap on Monday morning in sunny and cool Paris, was already looking forward to the quick reunion with the Munich team on the fine training turf. “Nothing has yet been won,” the 22-year-old warned of the second round of the 2020 Final Revenge on Tuesday (9:00 p.m.). In a good mood, Mbappé slapped President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, protected with mouth-nose protection, with gloves.

Almost eight months after the lost league finals of Lisbon, when Neymar, Mbappé and Co. kept desperate for new things, PSG seems ready for the next big step. Especially the double goalscorer of Munich, who already scored four times against Lionel Messi and FC Barcelona in the quarter-finals.

“We have failed in various phases,” Mbappé recently recalled in an interview with the broadcaster “RMCSport”. “Although for many the World Cup is the Holy Grail, for me the Champions League is the ultimate.” After the very effectively scored 3-2 in the first leg, the chances for PSG to reach the semi-finals are brilliant.
