PSG's Kylian Mbappe celebrates after scoring his side's second goal against Barcelona

In the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash, Kylian Mbappe’s hat-trick inspired Paris Saint-Germain to an emphatic 4-1 Barcelona win.

Lionel Messi (27) gave Barca the lead from the penalty spot in what was an open first half at the Nou Camp after Frenkie de Jong had his heels clipped by Layvin Kurzawa before Mbappe replied five minutes later for the visitors, who were without Neymar and Di Maria.

PSG took over after the break and Mbappe (65) added his second of the night before Moise Kean, who is on Everton’s loan, extended the French side’s advantage.

Mbappe (85) then created a superb curved finish to leave Barcelona shocked, rounding off the side of Mauricio Pochettino with a spectacular evening.

It leaves Barca on March 10, four years after the sides’ unforgettable last-16 clash in which the La Liga outfit recovered from a 4-0 first-leg defeat in France by winning the second 6-1 at the Nou Camp, needing another major recovery going into the second leg at the Parc des Princes.
