Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly tries bizarre new way to try and defend Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe vs Napoli

Liverpool fans were understandably happy with how Paris Saint-Germain vs Napoli played out.

PSG went into the game with three points, while Napoli had four, but both left with only one more to their name each.

The 2-2 draw at the Parc Des Princes means Liverpool now sit atop the group on six points and they look on course to at least qualify.

Napoli had control of the first-half and were deservedly ahead through Lorenzo Insigne's 29th-minute strike.

However, the tide certainly changed in the second-half, with PSG getting themselves level courtesy of an own-goal from Mario Rui.

The French champions appeared to be on top, but were caught out by Dries Mertens in the 77th-minute.

But Thomas Tuchel's blushes were spared by Angel Di Maria's stunning injury-time leveller.

It means the meeting between the two sides at the San Paolo in two weeks time will be even more important.

There will be a lot that Tuchel needs to look at from the game, with Kylian Mbappe struggling to assert himself throughout.

Mbappe takes a shot

Napoli marshalled the Frenchman well and it seems Kalidou Koulibaly came up with a unique way to try and stop Mbappe on the spot.

The Senegalese defender actually pushed his teammate Rui towards the teenage superstar while he was trying to wreak havoc on the wing.

It may not sound great in word form, but it's truly brilliant to watch.


Imagine if the Portuguese left-back went tumbling over...

Or even worse, thought it was an opponent and went down looking for a free-kick.

Mbappe's form this season in Ligue 1 has been nothing short of sensational, with the 19-year-old notching nine goals and three assists in just six matches.

He even scored four in one game against Lyon, so it was a surprise to see him perform so poorly against Napoli.

L'Equipe even handed Mbappe a 3/10 rating for his performance.

Perhaps PSG's lack of real competition in Ligue 1 is harming their quest for Champions League glory.
