Mauro Icardi double, Angel Di Maria assist in PSG win vs. Brugge

Emmanuel Dennis Set To Haunt PSG In UEFA Champions League

Substitute Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick as Paris Saint-Germain moved a step closer to the Champions League last 16 with a 5-0 victory over previously unbeaten Club Brugge on Wednesday morning (Oct 23, Singapore time).

Icardi reached three goals in 2 Champions League games this season for Inter.

The French striker's trio of goals saw him break Messi's long-standing record of being the youngest player to ever score 15 Champions League goals by nearly a year. They took a two goal lead in the first-half at the Bernabeu, only for Real Madrid to fight back to earn a 2-2 draw.

Mauro Icardi put PSG into a seventh minute lead but it was only after World Cup victor Mbappe, working his way back after a hamstring injury, came on early in the second half that they clicked into gear. The coach chose otherwise, which I had to accept. "I wanted to show it it is hard to do without me", Mbappe said. Football is a passion and to go without playing for two months was painful.

As unlikely as it may seem for a team that have already played Real Madrid and faced an intimidating atmosphere away at Galatasaray, this may prove to be PSG's most hard match in Group A so far.

"My injury is now gone, so I thank the medical staff".

There's little value in backing PSG at [1.61] to win.

The 20-year-old assisted Mauro Icardi for PSG's third shortly after, before adding his second of the night in the 79th minute, rounding Mignolet to slot home after latching on to Angel Di Maria's smart through ball.

Mbappe came on shortly after half-time and within nine minutes had PSG further ahead.

The former Monaco forward then set-up Icardi for his fifth in four games less than 60 seconds later.

The French side won 5-0 in Belgium, with Kylian Mbappe the hero as he came off the bench to bag a hat-trick.

Only returning to action for PSG on Saturday against Nice, the 20-year-old starred in a seven-minute cameo, scoring after just five minutes before claiming an assist in injury-time as Thomas Tuchel's side claimed a 4-1 win.
