Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé both scored a brace as Paris St-Germain thumped Club Brugge 4-1, ending the Belgians' hopes of qualifying for a Europa League spot.

Mbappé took advantage of a poor parry from Simon Mignolet to stroke the ball into the net for his 30th goal in the Champions League.

Former Liverpool keeper Mignolet could do little about the second goal, Mbappé hammering a low volley past him from Angel Di Maria's pass.
The visitors carved out a couple of opportunities of their own but found themselves 3-0 down before halftime after Mbappé found Messi who curled a trademark stunning shot from outside the area into the corner.
Brugge created a hatful of chances in the second half and their effort was rewarded when Mats Rits placed his first time effort beyond Gianluigi Donnarumma.
But Messi had the last word as he often does, winning a penalty after having his ankle clipped and he dispatched the spot kick emphatically for his sixth goal of the season.
PSG finish second of the group behind Manchester City while Brugge are bottom.

TALKING POINT

Mauricio Pochettino eases pressure for now after a difficult few days.
Poch has been under the cosh with criticism over his side's style of play compared to previous PSG sides and newspaper reports that Messi had concerns over his compatriot's tactical nous.
But the first half was the perfect response to that, three goals and some wonderful, fast tempo football all without the injured Neymar.
Brugge are a decent side but are not the benchmark at this level so questions remain about how Poch's PSG perform against the better sides after the recent defeat to Man City and draws aganst Marseille, Nice and Lens.

MAN OF THE MATCH

Kylian Mbappé (PSG): The Frenchman was at his devastating best having started on the bench in the disappointing draw with Lens at the weekend. His clinical finishing effectively killed the game off after seven minutes and his pace and assist for Messi's opener was breathtaking.
