Mbappe has been destroying Ligue 1 teams since making his debut on December 2, 2015. he has won six Ligue 1 titles and five Golden Boots in the league, becoming one of the best players in the world, per Transfermarkt.

Against Le Havre, PSG started on the wrong foot as their goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma, received a straight red card. However, Mbappe gave PSG the lead with a sublime strike in the 22nd minute.

Vitinha doubled their lead late in the game to secure all three points for the visitors.

A Le Havre fan had a banner in the stands which translated to "Mbappe let us win please". Mbappe did not receive that message, apparently, per Ligue 1. Le Havre last beat PSG in Ligue 1 in 1999.
