Mbappe doubles up as PSG knock out Lille

Paris St Germain strikers Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe have fired them to a 3-0 win over Lille to reach the quarter-finals of the French Cup.

Argentine Icardi put the holders in front in Wednesday’s tie featuring two of the teams challenging for the Ligue 1 title.

Icardi bundled the ball into the net in the ninth minute before France striker Mbappe doubled their advantage from the penalty spot shortly before halftime.

Lille, who lead PSG at the top of the Ligue 1 standings by three points, were awarded a penalty in the second half which would have given them hope of clawing their way back into the Cup tie.

But PSG keeper Keylor Navas saved Yusuf Yazici’s spot-kick, a week after keeping out a penalty from Barcelona’s Lionel Messi in the Champions League.

The in-form Mbappe then rounded off the victory for the hosts by striking again in stoppage time.
