Kylian Mbappe scored twice as Paris St-Germain defeated Juventus in the Champions League opener on Tuesday night.

Mbappe brilliantly volleyed in the opener off a lofted pass from Neymar before smashing in a low strike after a delightful one-two with Achraf Hakimi.

The Frenchman should have had a hat-trick but missed two shots.

Substitute Weston McKennie’s thunderous header restored Juve’s lead, while Dusan Vlahovic’s header was clawed out by Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Juventus were unable to find an equalizer, while at the other end, Mattia Perin saved Neymar’s close-range volley.

Benfica defeated Maccabi Haifa 2-0 in the other Group H game.
