It always looked likely to be a routine victory when the visitors were reduced to 10 men as goalkeeper Jonas Omlin saw red in the first half, and PSG flexed their offensive muscles to a full extent thereafter.
Mbappe particularly starred only days after coming under fire for poor performances.
📷 Kylian Mbappe: Match Snapshot
⚽ ⏱️ 34’ Mbappe really gets the ball rolling for PSG, who have played some fluent stuff but have been unable to find a finishing touch. Neymar makes the initial incision with a pass to Angel Di Maria, who in turn plays through Mbappe to lift the ball over Dimitri Bertaud and into the goal.
A ⏱️ 60’ Mbappe gets to the byline on the right of the park and has the composure to look up and find Neymar unchecked just outside the six-yard box. Of course, the Brazilian does not miss.
⚽ ⏱️ 63’ Incredibly, in the three minutes after setting up Neymar, Mauro Icardi has added a third. Mbappe completes the rout with an easy finish. Again Neymar is at the start of the move, playing a through ball to Icardi. Instead of shooting with just the goalkeeper to beat, he lays it to Mbappe for an easy finish.
