From there, it was all PSG as Neymar added two more goals to clinch a hat-trick while Kylian Mbappe notched two goals to help give PSG the key 5-1 win.
For PSG, the club has now clinched Champions League Group H. The club already knew that it had punched its ticket to the knockout stage following RB Leipzig’s win over Manchester United. So, PSG needed this win as it could have been the difference from possibly being drawn against the likes of Juventus or FC Porto in the Champions League Round of 16. For Tuchel and his side, it was mission accomplished as PSG has clinched its Champions League group for the fourth straight season.
The Champions League Round of 16 draw will be held on Monday where PSG now awaits who it will take on in the opening round of the knockout stage.
