Kylian Mbappe scores 3 as PSG thump Barcelona 4-1 in the first leg of the round of 16 clash
PSG youngster Kylian Mbappe had a victorious night to remember as he scored an hattrick to help his side triumph in the first leg of their tie against Barcelona at the Camp Nou. The youngster who once again reminded the footballing world of his game changing qualities had to step up in the absence of notable teammates Angel Di Maria and Neymar Jr who missed the tie due to injury.
Barcelona took the lead in the 27th minute through Lionel Messi’s penalty, but a ressilent PSG side scored just five minutes after and passed on to get three more goals ( A Kylian Mbappe hattrick and a goal from Italian Moise Kean).
All the pressure is now on Barcelona as they look forward to a second meeting away to Paris Saint Germain, as it was with no doubt a disastrous result for them in the first leg of the tie.
