Mbappe hat-trick leaves Barca’s UCL hopes in tatters



Mbappe has become only the third player to score a Champions League hat-trick against Barcelona, and the first since Andriy Shevchenko did it for Dynamo Kiev in 1997.

Barcelona aren’t out of this tie yet – recent history tells us that – but they’ll have to be much better in Paris to have a hope of progressing. PSG were rampant in the second half especially..

PSG head back to France with a commanding first-leg lead after demolishing Barca on their own turf despite going behind. Mbappe grabbed a hat-trick in an outstanding performance, even if Barca wilted towards the end. Without Neymar and Angel Di Maria, this win is a statement from PSG.
