Mbappe scores 4 and earns penalty as PSG beats Lyon 5-0
PSG became the first team ever to win its first nine games of a season in Ligue 1.
A foul on Mbappe set up Neymar’s early penalty before Mbappe scored four times over a 13-minute span of the second half.
Mbappe hit the post shortly after the break and then scored in the 61st, 66th, 69th and 74th minutes — the first with his left foot and the next three with his right.
The 19-year-old star of France’s World Cup title run this year, Mbappe became the youngest player to score four goals in a French league match in 45 seasons.
PSG was reduced to 10 men when defender Presnel Kimpembe was sent off with a straight red midway through the first half.
But then Lyon was also left with 10 men when Lucas Tousart picked up a second yellow for a foul on Mbappe in first-half stoppage time.
