Timothee Pembele
The French youngster has made four appearances for PSG this season

Paris St-Germain youngster Timothee Pembele scored his first goal for the club as they beat Strasbourg to keep pace with Ligue 1 leaders Lyon.

Defender Pembele, 18, opened the scoring, sweeping up a rebound from Angel Di Maria’s shot to poke home.

A Kylian Mbappe tap-in, a screamer from ex-Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye and an instinctive finish Toffees loanee Moise Kean secured the points.

PSG remain third, one point adrift of the top two.

Neymar is still missing for PSG because of ankle injury but the home side secured victory in the closing stages as three of the four goals came in the last 10 minutes.

Elsewhere, Lyon beat Nantes and Lille secured a narrow 3-2 victory over Montpellier to remain first and second respectively.

Thomas Tuchel’s PSG have dropped points on six occasions in the French league but now head into the winter break as Ligue 1 resumes on 6 January 2021.
