Kylian Mbappe has seemingly made a new enemy in the form of Barcelona fans, if a video doing the rounds online is anything to go by.

Considered one of the best players in world football, the Paris Saint-Germain ace scored twice as his side came from behind to knock the Catalan giants out of the UEFA Champions League.

PSG emerged 6-4 winners on aggregate, in a tie that initially looked dead and buried once Barcelona took the lead at Camp Nou to go ahead 4-2.

But the game changed completely once the La Liga champions lost Ronald Araujo, who was sent off for a last-man tackle on Bradley Barcola.

Ousmane Dembele pulled one back in front of a hostile crowd, with Vitinha levelling matters on aggregate.

Mbappe then turned the tie on its head, firstly slotting home from the penalty spot after Joao Cancelo brought down Dembele.

The 25-year-old got his second of the evening by burying a rebound from his own effort to cap off a superb night for the Parisians.

Mbappe winds up Barca fans

Throughout the match at the Olympic Stadium Lluis Companys, Mbappe was consistently subjected to jeers from Barca fans.

Things did not get any better at full-time, and a video appeared to show the Frenchman taking it all in as he walked down the tunnel in full glare of the hostile fans.

Mbappe made taunting gestures at the agitated fans, winding them up even more as some resorted to throwing items at the Frenchman.

According to AS, there is no love lost between Mbappe and Barca fans because of his links to Real Madrid, who are the Catalan club’s sworn enemies in La Liga.

Mbappe hailed as a future GOAT

Sports Brief also previously reported on how fans reacted to Mbappe’s masterclass against Barcelona on Tuesday.

Many users on X were adamant that it was only a matter of time before the Frenchman won the Ballon d’Or award.

Mbappe continued his brilliance in the most competitive club competition worldwide: the UEFA Champions League.
