PSG qualify to Round of 16 After Kylian Mbappe hattrick.
Vannes 0- 4 PSG
PSG run out 4-0 winners over Vannes. The hosts could have been forgiven for accepting a hammering today, instead, they put in a brave performance against PSG. The Champions League side couldn’t blow Vannes away in the first half.
Despite Kimpembe opening the scoring with a fine header but they couldn’t add to their advantage by half-time. Mbappe took over in the second half though.
The attacker netted three superb goals after the break: the first a one-on-one, the second a brilliant 20-yard strike, and the third a well-constructed tap-in. Vannes pushed hard for a consolation goal, but it wasn’t to be as PSG progressed into the next round.
KIMPEMBE! 1-0! PSG takes the lead. The opener arrives simply for the visitors Mendes swings a corner towards the back post, where Kimpembe moves in unmarked to plant a powerful header across Petrel and in!
And Mbappe makes it 2-0! That should be game over now. Kimpembe releases Mbappe on the break and the attacker finds himself clean through as he enters the Vannes half! Mbappe zooms into the box before curling a shot that Petrel deflects up in the air, only for it to spin forwards and bounce over the line!
MBAPPE! 3-0. It’s a brilliant goal from PSG. First Verratti snatches it from Daury, before flicking a clever pass into Simons. The young midfielder threads an elegant pass through to Mbappe who promptly lashes the first-time strike beyond Petrel from 20 yards!
Mbappe gets his hat-trick! 4-0! It’s another wonderfully crafted goal from PSG. Mbappe slips Ebimbe through with a clever reverse pass and the attacker returns the favour by sliding pass around the goalkeeper and back to Mbappe who slams it into an empty net!
