And if Kylian Mbappé or Moise kean struck at the end of the match, it’s the youngster Timothée Pembélé who delivered his in the first period. Positioned on the right side to make up for the many absences, the young 18-year-old Parisian, who played his fifth game with his training club, could savor his evening.
“It’s a great emotion for me tonight. I played at a position where I had to attack and follow all the balls. I set my first professional goal and I’m very happy with it. It is a very nice Christmas present for my parents, he thus launched at the microphone of Canal +. The last time I scored against my side, this time it was in a good way. The coach told me when there was room to attack. It was difficult since they were five behind. But we were able to get the ball rolling and find loopholes. It’s hard to find a place, but we have a lot of matches and there are also five substitutions. We are more likely to be in the group and return. “
