Kylian Mbappe admitted he “could’ve done more” after Paris Saint-Germain “completely dominated” Newcastle United in the Champions League.
The 24-year-old French international played the full 90-minutes at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday, as he was on hand in injury time to score a crucial equaliser from the penalty spot, after Tino Livramento was judged to have handled the ball in his own box.
Paris Saint Germain secured the 1-1 draw and maintained their position in second place across Group F, with the Magpies following closely in third, just two points behind the Ligue 1 giants.
The controversial penalty decision was hugely detrimental for Eddie Howe’s team, who would have moved above PSG if they had secured the 1-0 win away from home on Tuesday.
Speaking after the conclusion of the 1-1 draw in Paris, Mbappe admitted he could have done more on the evening to secure all three points for his side.
“I try to be at my best every night.
“I think I could have done more for my team.
“Also, I had a lot of chances and I didn’t score more goals,” he told RMC Sport.
“I had chances to score, I have to score, that’s clear.
“Anyone with eyes saw that we dominated.
“It is we who must be more efficient in the last gesture. We totally dominated.
“We have to finish our chances, we had too many in a Champions League match.
“Also, we must not give up, because there is one match left.
“The objective is to be first in the group so we must win in Dortmund. The message is clear!”
However, Mbappe and his PSG team-mates face a quick turnaround before their next test following the Newcastle clash, as they prepare to face Le Havre on Sunday.
Luis Enrique’s team currently sit at the top of Ligue 1, with just a one point gap separating them and OGC Nice in second, outlining how important a return to winning ways could be this weekend.
