Kylian Mbappe Scores Five Goals in Coupe de France for PSG


PARIS (AP) — Kylian Mbappé scored five goals, including a 12-minute hat trick in the first half, as Paris Saint-Germain won 7–0 at amateur team Pays de Cassel in the French Cup on Monday to set up a round-of-16 match at bitter rival Marseille.

It was his first hat trick since France’s World Cup final defeat to Argentina on Dec. 18. It took Mbappé’s tally to 25 goals in 24 games this season and moved him onto 196 overall for PSG—four short of Edinson Cavani’s club record.

Mbappe became the first PSG player to score five goals in a competitive match.
