Auxerre vs PSG score, result, highlights as Mbappe fires visitors closer to Ligue 1 title
Mbappe's double puts PSG on Ligue 1 title brink ahead of Strasbourg clash

Paris Saint-Germain are now just one point away from defending their Ligue 1 title this season after a Kylian Mbappe-inspired 2-1 win at Auxerre.

Mbappe was in sensational form, with his early double putting PSG in control, and brought the Les Bleus captain up to 28 league goals for the season.

Auxerre did rally after the restart, as Lassine Sinayoko steered them back into the contest, and Gianluigi Donnarumma was forced to make two key late stops.

A draw at Strasbourg next weekend will see PSG over the line with Auxerre facing a battle to avoid relegation.

Triple change for Auxerre as M'Baye Niang, Siriki Dembele and Gaetan Perrin come on for Hien, da Costa and Sinayoko.


Hien dances past two PSG defenders inside the box but his swerving shot is superbly tipped away by Donnarumma! So close to the equaliser.

70th Min: Auxerre are starting to push now as Raveloson's volley is bravely blocked away by Marquinhos.

64th Min: Mbappe and Messi have been a whir of movement in the last few minutes, looking to conjure up a third goal, but Auxerre are still in this.

58th Min: A change of shape from Galtier for the final stages, as Vitinha comes on for Hugo Ekitike, and drops into midfield.

⏱ 55' - First change 🔃

Fabian Ruiz almost pokes Mbappe into a perfect scoring chance but Ionut Radu spreads himself to make the stop.


Could we have a revival on out hands?

Nuno da Costa kept a loose ball alive just outside the box and his pass freed Sinayoko to fire past Donnarumma!

40th Min: PSG have eased off the gas, following an incredible opening, and Auxerre will sense they can get something after the restart.....if they can shackle Mbappe.


So close for the Rayan Raveloson hammers an effort from distance. Donnarumma is well beaten but the thunderbolt comes back off the crossbar!

28th Min: Hien is still causing problems for PSG and his stinging drive is batted away by Gianluigi Donnarumma.

20th Min: Auxerre are slowly showing some signs of life, as Gauthier Hein's looping effort drops over the bar, and Mbappe almost springs Lionel Messi in at the other end.

15th Min: Mbappe has a half chance to score a first half hat trick, but Auxerre recover and clear, and PSG keep up the pressure.

8th Min: GOAL 2-0 PSG!


Mbappe is on FIRE here! The French international works an angle on the edge of the box and slams home his second goal inside the opening ten minutes!
