Kylian Mbappe scored a brilliant hat-trick as PSG took charge of 16 round Champions League tie smashing Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
In the first half, Lionel Messi opened the scoring from the penalty spot after a trip to Frenkie de Jong by Layvin Kurzawa, but it was PSG who created the best chances in the game.
And when Kurzawa and Marco Verratti collaborated to set up a chance and Mbappe’s fast feet and strong finish left the Barca defense looking bemused as the ball nestled in the back of the net, the visitors deservedly equalized.
PSG kept on where they left off after the break and extended their lead when Mbappe slotted home his second of the night with just over an hour on the clock.
The third, going home unmarked from a free-kick, was added by Moise Kean and Mbappe completed his hat-trick with a sumptuous finish at the end of a blistering counter-attack on 85 minutes.
The away win leaves PSG in complete control of the tie ahead of the second leg in Paris on March 10.
