PSG looked certain to endure more heartbreak in Europe's marquee competition with Atalanta leading via Mario Pasalic in the dying embers of the match until Marquinhos and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored in injury time.
Hoddle believes PSG's victory was solely down to super sub Mbappe despite the Frenchman only being fit enough to play the final 30 minutes.
"Mbappe was the one who changed it - Neymar needed him," Hoddle said.
"Neymar's cutting edge wasn't there but it's the run off the ball, no one was making the movement [before Mbappe came on]. Mbappe was so sharp."
