Kylian Mbappe scored twice to put Paris St-Germain in a superb away advantage over title-holder Bayern Munich in an exciting Champions League quarter-final first leg.
The 22-year-old took just three minutes to make his mark as he was fed by Neymar and the forward hit a drive in the legs of Manuel Neuer.
Marquinhos doubled the lead of the French champions midway through the first half with a neat finish of a large Neymar ball before former PSG striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting returned home to reduce by half the deficit.
But Bayern Munich kept up the pressure and deservedly equalized on time when Thomas Muller led a header into the net on Joshua Kimmich’s free kick.
However, Mbappe had the final say as he swept a low strike through Jerome Boateng’s legs late to give PSG a crucial third away goal ahead of the second leg.
It was another eye-catching result in Europe for coach Mauricio Pochettino after beating Barcelona 4-1 in the first leg of their eighth draw.
Mbappe has now scored eight Champions League goals this season, the most total in a single season in the competition by a Frenchman.
