Kylian Mbappé and Neymar joined forces to obliterate Bayern Munich in a Champions League match on Wednesday evening.
The two forwards, who have a combined value of £364 million ($US486 million), were at their devastating best as Paris Saint-Germain won 3-0 at the Parc des Princes.
Bayern Munich’s misery began in the second minute. Neymar embarked on an unstoppable dribble and laid the ball off for Dani Alves, who rifled in from close range.
You can watch the early strike here:
Just after the half-hour mark, Mbappé played in Edinson Cavani who curled a shot from the 25-yard line. It was Cavani’s 59th goal in his last 60 PSG games.
Cavani’s corker is here:
PSG saved the best for last as Mbappé and Neymar teamed-up to show precisely what £364 million buys you.
After a lung-busting run from Alves, Mbappé glided past Bayern left-back David Alaba — one of the best defenders in the world — with a devastating dummy.
His pass along the six-yard box eventually found Neymar, who coolly lifted the ball beyond the reach of Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.
Here’s PSG’s third goal:
Mbappe’s performance captured the imagination of BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand.
“It’s illegal really what he’s doing on a football pitch and shouldn’t be allowed,” the former Manchester United defender joked.
“His decision-making for an 18-year-old [is great] and he’s making a difference in a Champions League stage in a team of superstars, it’s amazing to see. He’s a future superstar.”
