Casimir Ninga scored the first goal for Caen in the 56th minute of the match. Just three minutes later, Kylian Mbappe converted a penalty to equalize for PSG. He then scored his brace in the 87th minute to finally seal the 2-1 victory for Paris Saint-Germain. It seems that the French forward is on the way to become one of the best forwards in the world.
PSG vs Caen Full Highlights
While talking about the performance of Kylian Mbappe, PSG teammate and Brazilian star Neymar said, “The relationship I have with him is the best possible, both inside and out of the pitch.” He added, “I call him ‘Golden Boy’. He’s a boy for whom I have a very special affection, who will become one of the best players in football history, and I try to help him in the best way possible.”
Neymar said, “Whatever attitude he has in training or in the game I come and talk to him, or he comes to talk to me. It is as if he were a brother. By competition, this is not what leads us to winning titles, thinking of individual titles… it is not because of that.” He then also added, “We do not envy each other. When he scores a goal, he wants to give me a pass, when I give him a pass, I want him to score a goal too.”

The Brazilian star then compared his partnership with his previous partnerships while saying, “We have this partnership, as I had with Lionel Messi as well [at Barcelona].” He then talked about his recent transfer speculation with Real Madrid while saying, “Real is one of the biggest clubs in the world. Everyone that is followed by Real Madrid would feel attracted to play there, but I am happy in Paris.”
He said, “But no one knows the future, I am not saying that I will play for Real Madrid.” The star also said, “Everybody knows the dream that I have already accomplished,” and further added, “Barcelona was always my dream, something that I used to say since little kid. I was able to accomplish that, so my dream is fulfilled”.
