While expressing his delight to journalists after the match, PSG’s manager, Tuchel said, “I have to think about it, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before – 9-0 in a league game.”

“We really wanted to score, we played with a lot of quality. We improved during the second half and played very smoothly with a good offensive structure. There were also a lot of attacks, a lot of players in the penalty area. We had a lot of opportunities to score and created many more chances.

“After the first, second, third goal, we played with a lot of confidence. We did simple things but very quickly and decisively. We are very satisfied and very happy.”

The Hatricks from Cavani and Mbappe make them the second set of players to have scored Hatricks in a competitive match during a Ligue 1 match in the last 45 years.

Cavani’s Hatrick also means he now has more than a century of goals for PSG. However, Cavani explained that the match was just a payback since Guingamp had earlier defeated them in their French Cup fixtures some days before.
