PSG were not as superior as the final score suggests, particularly in the first half, yet they took their chances and capitalised on Lyon's collapse when it came.

"I keep working and I never doubted".

Bruno Genesio's side threw away their man advantage, though, as Lucas Tousart was dismissed, and after missing a string of chances, the sensational Mbappe capped an virtuoso display by scoring four times in 13 minutes to seal history for PSG.

Mbappe, who won the best young player award at the World Cup in Russian Federation after becoming the first teenager to score in a final since Pele in 1958, delivered his most efficient display since joining PSG against Lyon. Because for a striker, as long as opportunities are created for me, everything is fine.

32' - YELLOW CARD - Ndombele is the latest counter-attacker to bring a foul from a PSG player, this time Kimpembe.

"I will insist on the collective". "We improve day after day, match after match, not only in the Champions League, in Ligue 1 too".

"We have a new coach, a new philosophy, and we show that we can adapt".

There would be more drama - Mbappe drilling home at the culmination of Neymar's mazy run - while Gianluigi Buffon was forced into a save to deny Memphis Depay a late consolation.

"When we make the effort for each other, it makes the difference".

7 - PSG went goal insane, but it was not a ideal tactical match from Tuchel; Marquinhos is still far from convincing in midfield, while the defence still leaks chances.

"This is a group where everyone knows the importance of each and I want to congratulate him". They play and go through things as a team.

PSG pulled off the Ligue 1 shutout on Sunday at the Parc des Princes in Paris.

Cornet, who came on for Fekir, nearly scored in freaky circumstances shortly after, as a Silva clearance ricocheted off his back and bounced back off the base of the post.

"I am very happy for Kylian - he is a player with great qualities and he handles responsibility well".

The second half started with PSG's fierce attacks.
