Kylian Mbappe became PSG’s hero with a class hat-trick against Barca, at the Camp Nou mecca.
Barcelona has high expectations in the PSG confrontation, in the context of the French team’s absence of duo Neymar and Angel Di Maria. However, Kylian Mbappe had an excellent match when he scored 3 goals, helping the home team “destroy” Barcelona with the score 4-1.
Talking about the unexpectedly successful match at the Camp Nou, the 2018 World Cup champion replied succinctly: “We are very happy, it is a very important game, we are here to win. “
Three goals against Ter Stegen also helped Mbappe go into Champions League history, as the first player to do this in the knockout round. Before PSG’s No. 7, Andriy Shevchenko and Faustino Asprilla also scored a hat-trick against Barca in the European Cup, but both in the group stage.
Immediately after returning from Spain, Pochettino and PSG players will prepare for another big battle against AS Monaco – Kylian Mbappe’s former team. The defending Champions League runner-up has yet to reclaim the first place from Lille, but the gap between the two is only one point.
After that, the home team of the Prince’s Park will have two relatively gentle matches against Dijon and Bordeaux, before entering the second leg with the Blaugrana.
