A hat-trick and a three-year extension, Kylian Mbappé was the man of the evening for PSG, wide winner of Metz (5-0). After announcing on the lawn of the Parc des Princes that he would not leave the French capital for that of Spain before the start of the match, the striker brought to life a dream evening at the Parc des Princes. Elusive as usual, he offered himself a hat-trick (24th, 27th and 50th) and was a constant poison for the Metz defense.
The Frenchman had started his season under the whistles of the Parc des Princes while his future was still uncertain and a departure to Real Madrid was as possible as it was a few weeks ago, he ended it acclaimed by the supporters after wearing the PSG throughout the season. He magnified a deep pass from Di Maria by eliminating Caillard before concluding from the left (1-0, 24th) then one from Lionel Messi with another strike from the left (2-0, 27th).

Frustrated by a shot that was too crossed (42nd), he did not appreciate missing his pass to Neymar and his pressing pushed Kouyaté into error. Once again in possession of the ball, he again deceived Caillard from the right (4-0, 50th). A hat-trick which then brought his total to 28 goals for the season and gave him room in the distance fight with Wissam Ben Yedder for the title of top scorer. Never satisfied, he found the post while Marc-Aurèle Caillard had been taken on the wrong foot (62nd). On this evening of May 21, which celebrates PSG’s tenth French championship title, he was not, however, the only hero.
Di Maria ends with a bang and … in tears
295 matches, 93 goals. This is the record of Angel Di Maria in seven seasons with PSG. In front of supporters who had resumed encouraging his family at half-time, Di Maria ended his Parisian adventure with a goal (66th) and an assist for Kylian Mbappé. In tears after his 93rd goal in red and blue, he was also so when he left the field during which his teammates formed a guard of honor (75th). Very active for more than an hour, he came up against Caillard (24th) while delivering millimeter passes of which he has the secret and which have delighted the Park since 2015.
Meanwhile, Neymar had increased the mark by recovering the ball after a counter in front of Di Maria (3-0, 31st) for his 100th Parisian goal. Metz, which had obtained the first chances of the meeting, had just sunk in six minutes. A nightmarish evening until the end with the expulsion of Boubacar Traoré (58th) and a direct descent into Ligue 2 since Saint-Etienne snatched a point from Nantes (1-1). What does it matter for Kylian Mbappé who had things to celebrate tonight. Top scorer (28 goals), best passer (17 assists), a first in Ligue 1, and Parisien until 2025. The triumph is total.
