Kylian Mbappe scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain ended holders Bayern Munich’s 19-match unbeaten Champions League run by winning a quarter-final first-leg thriller 3-2.
The lethal Mbappe’s 31st goal of the season early on in the snow at Allianz Arena on Wednesday and a header from captain Marquinhos put PSG two goals up in a repeat of last year’s final.
Eric Choupo-Moting pulled one back against his former club in the first half and Thomas Muller levelled after the break, but Mbappe had the final say with a third away goal for PSG.
Mbappe’s double, which took his tally to eight goals in as many Champions League games this season, gave Mauricio Pochettino’s side the upper hand heading into the second leg at the Parc des Princes next Tuesday.
