PSG Mbappé congratulated by the Spanish newspapers, Barcelona a little less

Kylian Mbappé once again stole the headlines with his impressive performance in Paris Saint-Germain’s victory against Real Sociedad. This time, it was the Spanish newspapers that took notice, albeit with mixed reviews.

Spanish daily AS acknowledged Mbappé’s impact on the game, stating that he “brought Real down from its cloud” with his crucial goal. El Mundo described the game as “Kylian Mbappé’s garden,” highlighting the French striker’s dominance on the pitch. The Catalan newspaper Sport, while mostly focused on Barcelona-related news, also recognized Mbappé’s contribution and praised his performance.

However, not all Spanish newspapers were as complimentary. Mundo Deportivo emphasized that the tie was far from over, believing in a potential miracle at Anoeta, Real Sociedad’s home ground. They stated that the best of Real Sociedad is just as good as PSG. Marca, another prominent Spanish publication, seemed more focused on other stories and featured Barcelona and Real Madrid on their front page. This suggests that Mbappé’s performance did not receive as much attention as it did in other newspapers.

Even in English newspapers, there were similar observations about Mbappé’s impact. The Independent recognized that Real Sociedad was the better team until Mbappé scored the opening goal. The Guardian also praised PSG’s performance, referring to them as an “anti-galactic” team while acknowledging Mbappé’s central role in the squad.

It is clear that Mbappé’s talent and performances continue to capture the attention of football enthusiasts across Europe. His ability to make a decisive impact in important games has not gone unnoticed. While some newspapers may focus on other teams or players, there is no denying the immense talent and star power possessed by the young French forward.

As the Champions League progresses, it will be interesting to see if Mbappé can maintain his impressive form and lead PSG to further success. His performances on the pitch continue to generate excitement and admiration, not only within France but also among football fans across the continent.
