There are spectacular first-touches and then there is this from Mauro Icardi. Simply breathtaking.

Angel Di Maria played a long pass to Icardi in the box who leapt in the air to meet the ball and brought it down with the most delicate of touches you’ll ever see. If he did just that you would be amazed but the Argentine wasn’t done.
Icardi quickly taps the ball over to Kylian Mbappé who ran towards goal completely unmarked and scored easily in the 67th minute for his first goal on the night.
This would be PSG’s last goal on the night as they overwhelmed 10-man Saint-Étienne by a final score of 6-1 to advance to the semi-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue.
The offensive output should be a warning shot to Borussia Dortmund who was drawn against PSG in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
