Kylian Mbappé hat-trick helped Paris Saint-Germain beat Barcelona 4-1 at the Camp Nou in the knockout stages of the Champions League on Tuesday.
And reacting after the game, the Frenchman said that he had always wanted to give his team the best of his performance.
Barcelona dominated the early stages of the match with Keylor Navas denying Griezmann before Lionel Messi scored from the penalty spot after Layvin Kurzawa knocked down Frenkie de Jong in the area.
However, PSG responded emphatically with Mbappé firing an equaliser and striking twice midway through the second half.
Mbappé scored his second of the night after Alessandro Florenzi stormed behind the home defense, then Moise Kean headed in on a free kick by Leandro Paredes to make it 3-1.
The French World Cup winner delivered the final blow with five minutes remaining with a stunning curling effort on the break, and Barcelona have it all to do against PSG once again.
Reacting after the game, Mbappé told UEFA.com, “I’ve always wanted to give the best of myself with Paris Saint-Germain. It’s a shirt that means a lot to me
“I haven’t always succeeded and maybe I’ll have bad games, but I’ve never been someone to hide, even if I make mistakes.”
Barcelona will travel to Parc des Princes for the second leg on Wednesday, March 10 as they look to overturn the tie just like they did in 2017.
