Kylian Mbappe scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain beat Bayern Munich in an exciting first leg of their Champions League quarter-final first leg in Munich on Wednesday

Mbappe’s goals shelved strikes from Marquinhos, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Thomas Muller to give the defending champions – who lacked star striker Robert Lewandowski – a steep slope to climb for the return match in Paris next week

PSG took the lead just three minutes after the opening whistle with a quick counterattack that the excellent Mbappe completed after Neymar rolled the ball in his way to the right

The visitors had the goal in the net in the 12th minute thanks to Julian Draxler, but the side judge rightly ruled Mbappe offside in the preparation phase

PSG scored two goals ahead after 28 minutes as Marquinhos settled in and stroked the house after a smart pass from Neymar who caught Bayern’s backline out of position

Bayern, who had sprinkled PSG with shots all night, scored a deserved goal thanks to Choupo-Moting in the 37th minute and tied the game in the 60th minute with a characteristic Muller header in the box

Mbappe, however, put the Parisians forward eight minutes later with a fine individual effort of another counterattack – the World Cup winner slicing to the left and beating Manuel Neuer at the near post

The goals marked the young French international’s seventh in the Champions League round of 16, overtaking Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the most in PSG history The brace – his third in UCL knockouts – also tied Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland for second by a player before turning 23 in the competition’s history Lionel Messi has played four of those games
