Mbappé saves PSG with debatable penalty shortly before time

Paris Saint-Germain escaped the second point loss in a row in Ligue 1, and coach Mauricio Pochettinos star formation won at Parc des Princes with 2-1 from Angers by a debatable penalty by Kylian Mbappé.
Unlike the French forward, Lionel Messi and Neymar were missing, as they were not back from South America in time following international commitments. Ángel Di María, Marquinhos, Keylor Navas and Leandro Paredes were also missing for that reason. Without the stars, PSG had all the trouble with Angers. Ten minutes before the break, Angelo Fulgini even put the competition
s surprising number four ahead by working inside the second pole.
