Mbappe started in style, scoring twice in quick succession for the home side.

His first came after 72 seconds, firing into the bottom corner, before the France World Cup winner volleyed in from Angel di Maria's clipped pass soon after.

That took him to 31 goals in Europe's elite competition, passing the 30-goal landmark at the age of 22 years and 352 days to surpass Messi, who was 23 years and 131 days when he reached that target.

Lionel Messi also scored twice either side of a Bruges consolation.
