UCL 1st Leg: Mbappe Nets Hat-trick As PSG Crash Barcelona 4-1 At Camp Nou

Kylian Mbappe scored a brilliant hat-trick when PSG completely outplayed Barcelona at the Camp Nou to take charge of their round-of-16 Champions League tie.

Lionel Messi opened the scoring against the run of play from the penalty spot after a trip on Frenkie de Jong by Layvin Kurzawa, but it was PSG that created the better of the chances throughout the game.
