While You Were Asleep: Mbappe scores five, Kane wins it for Tottenham, Empoli stun Inter Milan


Kylian Mbappe scored five goals, including a 12-minute hat-trick, as Paris Saint-Germain thumped Pays de Cassel 7-0 in the French Cup. They will face Marseille in the round-of-16 clash.

It was his first hat trick since France’s World Cup final defeat to Argentina.

It took Mbappé’s tally to 25 goals in 24 games this season and moved him onto 196 overall for PSG — four short of Edinson Cavani’s club record.
