Superb PSG hit Anderlecht for 5 in Paris

Paris Saint-Germain have reached the knockout stages of the Champions League thanks to a thumping 5-0 win over Anderlecht at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday night.

The Ligue 1 giants dominated the encounter from the off and were rewarded for their efforts with the opening goal on the half-hour mark.
Kylian Mbappe worked a reverse pass to find
Marco Verratti on the left side of the box, and the Italian cut inside onto his right foot before rifling beyond the reach of Frank Boeckx .
Despite a brief fightback from Anderlecht, Neymar doubled the hosts' lead four minutes into first-half stoppage time as he cut inside, weaved past Adrien Trebel , and curled a shot past the goalkeeper.
The result of the encounter was put beyond doubt just six minutes into the second half, with a free kick touched onto the post by Boeckx and pounced upon by
Layvin Kurzawa , who tapped home on the rebound.
There was yet more time for PSG to further run riot against Anderlecht, with Kurzawa completing a memorable hat-trick thanks to a diving header in the 72nd minute and a drilled finish six minutes later.

Unai Emery 's side have won all four of their
Group B games so far, scoring 17 goals and conceding none.
