Toulouse Upset PSG in Mbappé's Farewell Match | France Ligue 1

Kylian Mbappé faced a mixed reception from PSG fans at the Parc des Princes as he bid farewell in his last home match against Toulouse. Despite initial boos, the stadium erupted in adoration for the departing star, who had etched his name in club history with an impressive 255 goals during his seven-year tenure since arriving from Monaco.

In a fitting display of his prowess, Mbappé swiftly added to his tally, slotting home his 256th goal just eight minutes into the game, igniting cheers from the crowd. Initially ruled offside, VAR intervention overturned the decision, allowing Mbappé to revel in the acclaim as he secured his sixth consecutive Ligue 1 golden boot with his 28th goal of the season.

However, Toulouse quickly leveled the score, with Thijs Dallinga finding the net past PSG goalkeeper Arnau Tenas. Playing with purpose against a depleted PSG side, Toulouse seized control, with Yann Gboho and Frank Magri adding to their lead to secure a surprise victory, dampening Mbappé’s farewell.

Despite the defeat, PSG’s celebrations for their 12th Ligue 1 trophy were not to be overshadowed. A grand spectacle unfolded at the Parc des Princes, with a 30-piece orchestra, fireworks, and video montages showcasing the highlights of the 2023/2024 season. As the festivities concluded, the Ligue 1 trophy found its place in PSG’s illustrious trophy cabinet, symbolizing yet another triumph in the club’s rich history under Qatar Sports Investments’ ownership.
