Toulouse beat PSG to blight Mbappé's final home game

For this particular Paris Saint-Germain striker, it wasn't about the goals – because there have been masses – but the send-off on Sunday night.

Kylian Mbappé duly received boos from thousands of the PSG faithful when his name was announced ahead of the kick-off against Toulouse at the Parc des Princes.

Fortunately, for the last home match before the 25-year-old's departure, adulation aplenty resounded around the stands for the man who boasted a club record 255 goals in the seven years since he arrived from Monaco

Eight minutes into the clash, it was 256. And nothing but cheers.

PSG goalkeeper Arnau Tenas thrashed the ball forward, Mbappé brought it down, raced into the Toulouse penalty area, rounded the goalkeeper Guillaume Restes and slotted in.

Wonderful theatre. The joy was short-lived as the linesman signalled off-side.

But technology intervened to overrule and Mbappé turned for the acclaim having notched up his 28th Ligue 1 goal of the season and sealed a sixth successive Ligue 1 'golden boot'.

Within five minutes, the visitors were level. Thijs Dallinga swept in past Tenau after being set up by Moussa Diarra.

Toulouse – well clear of the relegation tussle and purged of the angst of qualifying for next season's European competitions – played with purpose and poise against a PSG side shorn of the midfield metronome Vitinha and Ousmane Dembélé's leggy incisiveness in attack.

Lead

Frank Magri added a third for Toulouse in stoppage time to spoil Mbappé's send off.
