Mbappe struck the game into life with a glorious opener and extinguished any hope of a comeback with a composed finish early in the second half, with Mikel Merino’s late effort little more than a consolation.

Kylian Mbappe scored as PSG advanced

The Spanish La Liga side Sociedad had their chance when Bardley Barcola tried his luck and was denied from point-blank range.

Reportedly want-away Mbappe struck a rocket across the box after bullying the visitor’s defenders to break the deadlock and almost broke the net.

Mbappe nearly had a second on the half-hour mark. This time, he collected Barcola’s cut-back but his low strike was well kept out by the Sociedad stopper.

The hosts had the odd moment of quality on the ball in the first half but found PSG’s high press almost impossible to play through. Takefusa Kubo sent a long-range effort flying wide of Gianluigi Donnarumma’s post as the clock ticked over into stoppage time.

Mbappe added his second ten minutes after the break and certainly brought home the match’s ball for MVP. Lee Kang-in’s long ball sent the Frenchman flying through on goal and he made no mistake, drilling into Remiro’s bottom corner.

Ander Barrenetxea did find the back of the net on the hour mark but the offside flag was quickly raised and VAR confirmed the call.

The disallowed goal did inject more life to Sociedad’s attack and, after several poor strikes from range, the hosts nearly pulled one back with ten minutes to go. Donnarumma made an excellent reaction save to deny Benat Turrientes from six yards out.

Sociedad kept coming and eventually got their consolation goal as Merino poked home in the dying embers. The La Liga representative bow out of the competition by one of the strongest contenders.
