psg vs metz

Kylian Mbappe celebrated his new signing of Paris Saint-Germain by scoring a hat-trick in a 5-0 win over Metz with ten players.

The Frenchman, who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, has spent months speculating about his future by signing a new contract with the Ligue 1 champions until 2025 on Saturday.

Kylian Mbappe marked the event in style with a treble overcoming Metz, who sent off Boubacar Traore with a red card in the second half as they were eliminated from Parc des Princes.

Neymar was also targeted along with Angel di Maria, who was well-received when he was dropped from his last place in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad before moving to Juventus.

There was already chaos for PSG’s last Ligue 1 season game following news that Kylian Mbappe would be staying in the French capital, a deal confirmed before the start of the match.

And PSG talisman opened the scoring in the 25th minute; running to Di Maria for a fun ball and circling Marc-Aurele Caillard before hitting an empty net.

The Ligue 1 top scorer doubled his number three minutes later. In this case, Lionel Messi provided the right world, before Mbappe finished under Caillard.

Neymar then entered the stadium half an hour later. The Brazilian star finished well when the ball bounced off him after Kiki Kouyate threw a clever slide challenge that initially denied Di Maria.

Kylian Mbappe completed his hat-trick within five minutes of a fresh start; snatching Kouyate and circling Caillard before claiming to end his 28th league goal in the campaign.

Metz dropped to 10 when Traore was given a second yellow card for a quick challenge to Neymar before Di Maria scored a fifth in the 67th minute after scoring Messi’s first goal on the post.

Di Maria then burst into tears after being fired, ending his successful career with the team on a high note.
