Kylian Mbappe had another busy evening on Tuesday as PSG saw off RB Leipzig in a dramatic Champions League clash.
The games between Leipzig and PSG are likely to decide who wins group A, and the battle could not have been much more intense.
PSG took the lead in the game thanks to Mbappe, but goals from Andre Silva and Nordi Mukiele put the German side ahead.
Some Lionel Messi magic, including a Panenka penalty, saw PSG retake the lead over the course of seven minutes, and there was even time for Mbappe to miss a penalty during stoppage time.
It mattered little in the end with PSG seeing out the win, but one of the more lasting images of Mbappe came before kick-off.
Video footage showed the French striker in the tunnel with teammates Lionel Messi and Marco Veratti.

As you can see above, in comical fashion, Mbappe almost leaps out of his skin after the referee blows the whistle to get the players lined up for the walkout onto the pitch.
Mbappe’s teammates didn’t seem to notice the jump, but Italian referee Marco Guida did and he shared a laugh about it with the PSG frontman.
