World Cup winner, Kylian Mbappe scored a stunning hat trick as Paris Saint Germain came from a goal down to crush FC Barcelona 4-1 in the first leg Champions League last 16 knock out stage last evening.
The French champions were back at Camp Nou for the first time since their humiliating 6-1 defeat in 2017.
It was a nightmare start for PSG as Barcelona were awarded a spot kick after 27 minutes when Kurzawa fouled Frankie de Jong in the 18-yard box. Lionel Messi calmly slotted it past Keylor Navas to give the home side the lead.
However, Barca’s lead didn’t last long as Kylian Mbappe danced past Lenglet Clement to go level minutes before the half time. In the second half, Mbappe doubled his personal tally in the second half, and the similarly lively Moise Kean got PSG’s third soon after to give PSG a two- goal advantage.
Mbappe rounded off an incredible night for PSG five minutes from time, curling a gorgeous first-time effort into the top-right corner after Julian Draxler led a devastating counter; 4-1 was the score for the night.
