Kylian Mbappe was unplayable at times as PSG defeated Lyon 5-1 to progress to the final of the Coupe de France.

The Frenchman scored a hat-trick, including a goal of the season contender.

His first and third goals came via close-range finishes with a combined distance of about two yards, though he did display sensational movement for the hat-trick goal with a darting run into the centre.

The second goal was outrageous. After collecting possession inside his own half, he leaves Lucas Tousart for dead with a rapid stepover before eating up the space ahead with an Olympic-level sprint. He then proceeds to turn Marcelo inside out with a few touches before firing a finish into the corner.

Mbappe sent 18 passes into the final third, had 10 touches inside the opposition box, and misplaced just five passes all game.
