Angel Di Maria produced a superb assist for Kylian Mbappe vs Club Brugge

Club Brugge KV v Paris Saint-Germain: Group A - UEFA Champions League

Kylian Mbappe continues to defy belief on the European stage. 

The PSG striker started on the bench against Club Brugge before coming on to score a hat-trick in just 22 minutes. 

The 20-year-old also provided Mauro Icardi with an assist as he put the Parisians' Belgian opponents to the sword. 

Mbappe now has almost double the goals Lionel Messi had scored in the Champions League at his age. 

Thomas Tuchel will be delighted - for he may have inadvertently stumbled across a new attacking set-up. 

PSG were once again without injured pair Neymar and Edinson Cavani, which is becoming something of a recurring theme. 

Yet Mbappe scored three, Icardi two, and Angel Di Maria chipped in with no fewer than three assists.

It's the latter's performance that has gone under the radar somewhat, understandably given his teammates' exploits.  

Mbappe could arguably not have bagged a hat-trick without the Argentine's vision, though, as he provided a simply sublime assist for his final goal. 

That's got to be one of the passes of the season.

The 31-year-old already has 10 goals and five assists in all competitions this season. 

Tuchel's criticism of him earlier this season was that he sometimes "looks to play in his team-mates too much". He won't have had any complaints about that on this occasion. 

On paper, Club Brugge may not have looked like the toughest opposition, but Di Maria, Mbappe, Icardi and co. deserve praise for tearing them apart in the second half nonetheless.

Not only are they currently the league-leaders of the Belgian First Division A, until last night they were unbeaten in the Champions League this season, having drawn 2-2 with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu last time out.
