It’s hard to argue that a player hasn’t made an impact in a game when he’s instrumental in the only goal scored. Mbappé was very active in the first half, testing the Marseille goalkeeper, Pau Lopez. Just before halftime, Mbappé, in his usual style, found himself in the left half-space. After a few unsuccessful attempts, Mbappé finally set up Neymar at the penalty spot. The Brazilian eventually found the net, securing the only goal of the match.
