Kylian Mbappe ‘sparks tunnel fight’ as PSG star’s comments provoke Barca stars

EXPRESS 

Kylian Mbappe’s exuberant celebrations reportedly sparked a 60-man fight in the tunnel after Paris Saint-Germain dumped Barcelona out of the Champions League on Tuesday. According to reports in the Spanish media, Mbappe is claimed to have upset Barca’s players by shouting about his side’s victory.

Mbappe scored twice as PSG staged a thrilling comeback to win 6-4 on aggregate. Barca had themselves to blame having capitulated after leading the tie 4-2.

Ronald Araujo was sent off midway through the first half after Raphinha had given the Spanish giants the lead. Joao Cancelo then made a misjudged challenge on Ousmane Dembele, conceding a penalty from which Mbappe scored.

PSG are into the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in three years. And their players reportedly delighted in celebrating that fact in the tunnel at Barca’s temporary Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys home.
