Julian Draxler has said that his Paris Saint-Germain teammate, Kylian Mbappe has ‘quality like no-one else in the world.’
Draxler said this after Mbappe netted twice to help the French champions to a memorable 3-2 win over Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.
Mbappe opened the scoring for the visitors and Marquinhos made it 2-0, but Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Thomas Muller had equalised for Bayern before Mbappe netted again.
PSG now have a huge advantage going into the second leg in France with three away goals and Draxler had no doubts who they had to thank for the fine win.
He said the prolific Frenchman possesses quality that no other player in the world can match.
“That’s what [Mbappé] is there for because he has quality like no-one else in the world,” Draxler told reporters after the game.
“We need his speed. At the moment, he has chances and he scores. That’s really important for us, especially against this Bayern side.”
The Germans had 31 shots at goal and Draxler praised the efforts of the entire team as they miraculously kept Bayern down to just two goals.
