Julian Draxler says his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Kylian Mbappe has ‘quality like no-one else in the world’ after his two goals helped PSG to a memorable 3-2 win over Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

The first leg of the Champions League quarter-final contest was a thrilling affair, with Mbappe opening and closing the scoring on the night.

Marquinhos had made it 2-0 to PSG, but Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Thomas Muller had equalised for Bayern before Mbappe netted again.

It has given the Parisians a huge advantage as they take three away goals into the second leg in France and Draxler had no doubts who they had to thank for the fine win.

The German believes the prolific Frenchman possesses quality that no other player in the game can boast.

‘That’s what [Mbappé] is there for because he has quality like no-one else in the world,’ said Draxler. ‘We need his speed. At the moment, he has chances and he scores. That’s really important for us, especially against this Bayern side.’

Draxler did praise the efforts of the entire team, though, as they miraculously kept Bayern down to just two goals despite 31 shots at goal.

‘We had a lot of hard work to do because the way they play is dangerous, with or without [the injured Robert] Lewandowski. We’ll try to win in Paris and go through to the next round.

‘It was really hard work from the whole team. We saw what a great team they have, always dangerous. We have a lot of quality in attack and that’s why we scored three goals and got the win.’

Mbappe himself was revelling in the challenge of taking on the European champions and facing one of the finest goalkeepers in the game in the process.

‘I love to play against the best players in world and Manuel Neuer is one of the best keepers in history,’ he said. ‘I felt no pressure. I didn’t manage to score against him in the final but I hope to be able to do it again.

‘It was a superb team performance above all and I benefited from that. But it’s just half-time in a huge tie. We suffered, but we suffered as a team. We were solid and managed to make them suffer thanks to our strong points.’
