Mbappe, who was a pale shadow of his usual brilliant best in the first leg, scored his first goal of the evening from the spot to put the Ligue 1 leaders ahead on aggregate before rattling home from close range to seal victory and ultimately helping PSG qualify for the last four, per the BBC.

As noted by Transfermarkt, his double against the five-time Champions League winners means the 2018 World Cup winner has now scored an eye-watering 41 goals in 42 games across all competitions this term.

Fans hail Mbappe after sinking Barcelona

It came as no surprise that football fans took to social media to heap praise on the 25-year-old for walking the talk after he was reportedly 'furious' with his performance from the first leg and promised revenge in the reverse tie.

@WaruiJohn2 believes Mbappe will dominate the sport in the coming years:

"The Goat of the next 10 years."

@Krepublics2_ went a notch higher, predicting the Frenchman to win football's most coveted prize:

"Ballon d 'Or winner."

Another user, @stareagle77_, wrote:

"He is HIM."

@CFCHorpe added:

"Never doubt the man! Barcelona fans just learnt the hard way."

@cfcpriiest retorted:

"Kylian Mbappe owns Barcelona."

PSG erase the memory of infamous collapse

Sports Brief also reported that Kylian Mbappe and PSG capitalised on Ronald Araujo's red card, leading Barcelona to play with 10 men for over an hour.

The Ligue 1 leaders secured a 4-1 victory on the night and a 6-4 aggregate win under Luis Enrique's leadership.

This victory seems to finally erase the memory of their infamous collapse against Barcelona in 2017. PSG now eyes a second Champions League final appearance in five seasons.
