PSG sail into last 16 as Kurzawa nets hat trick in rout of Anderlecht
Published in Ahram Online on 31 - 10 - 2017

Paris St Germain qualified for the Champions League last 16 in emphatic fashion when they extended their perfect Group B record with a 5-0 home win against Anderlecht on Tuesday, with fullback Layvin Kurzawa scoring a hat-trick.
Neymar, back in the team after being sent off during the French 'classic' against Olympique de Marseille, scored the second goal on the stroke of halftime after Marco Verratti's opener, with Kurzawa completing the scoreline after the interval.
PSG have 12 points from four games and lead Bayern Munich, who beat Celtic 2-1 away, by three points.
Celtic have three points and Anderlecht have none.
PSG dominated from the outset but Kylian Mbappe's early strike from inside the box was blocked by Frank Boeckx.
The France forward, however, found Verratti in the area on the half-hour for the Italy midfielder to fire the ball into the far corner.
It was a deserved lead for PSG, who doubled their tally four minutes into stoppage time in the first half when Neymar's 20-metre strike went past Boeckx.
Neymar's free kick bounced on to the post and into the path of Kurzawa, who poked home the ball seven minutes into the second half.
The fullback made it 4-0 with a diving header in the 72nd and added his personal third six minutes later with a low shot after being set up by Angel Di Maria.
