PSG forward Kylian Mbappe conveniently smashed Nimes

PSG forward Kylian Mbappe conveniently smashed Nimes

Kylian Mbappe scored twice, as a much-changed Paris St-Germain side comfortably beats Nimes, who had been down to 10 men for 78 minutes.

Before racing away to score his second to make it 3-0 to PSG, Mbappe rounded the keeper to slot it into an empty net in the first half.

Full-back Alessandro Florenzi scored with a close-range header after hitting the post twice.

And Pablo Sarabia, a Spaniard, who set up Florenzi, made it 4-0 late.

Nimes defender Loick Landre was sent off for a reckless challenge on Rafinha after having caught him in the stomach with his studs in the 12th minute.

Before being replaced in the second half Midfielder Rafinha, who this month joined the French champions from Barcelona on a three-year deal, was impressive throughout and picked up an assist.

Mbappe came close with a headed effort, while Ander Herrera was denied in the first half from close range-after the sending-off, it was a ruthless display by PSG, who dominated the game and had numerous chances to score.

PSG was without key forward Neymar, who was left out of the squad after playing for Brazil-and scoring a hat-trick, in their World Cup qualifying win over Peru on Wednesday.

Everton striker Moise Kean, who, until the end of the season, joined PSG on loan, made his debut but was unable to get on the score sheet despite heading late in the second half to the crossbar.
