Paris St-Germain 5-0 Anderlecht

Kurzawa
Layvin Kurzawa had only scored once this season before his unlikely treble

Left-back Layvin Kurzawa became the first defender to score a Champions League hat-trick as Paris St-Germain thrashed Anderlecht to confirm their place in the last 16.

Kurzawa had only scored 17 career goals before kick-off but weighed in with three goals in the second half.

Neymar and Marco Verratti also scored superb goals as PSG easily qualified for the knockout stage.

Bayern Munich also qualified after beating Celtic 2-1 in the other game.

Kurzawa showed the instincts of a striker for his first two goals, poking in after a shot had hit the post and then heading in at the far post, before driving his third goal in through a crowd of players.

Top scoring defenders
Kurzawa has got some ground to make up on the top-scoring defenders in Champions League history

He said: "The hat-trick is thanks to my team-mates. I am delighted and the goals will give me confidence."

PSG's right-back, Thomas Meunier, also has a hat-trick this season, scoring three times for Belgium against Gibraltar.

PSG also set the record for most goals in first four group stage games with 17, beating Manchester United's 16 in their treble-winning campaign of 1998-99.

United conceded seven goals after four games that season, while PSG have conceded none so far.
