PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe admits he thrives playing in big games.

The French forward scored a brace in a 3-2 away win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday.

He said, via BBC: "I love to play against the best players in world and Manuel Neuer is one of the best keepers in history. 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.

"I love this type of game. They haven't always gone my way and maybe they won't in the future, but I'm not here to hide. I love this kind of game and being decisive.

"It was a difficult game against the best team in Europe right now. We played well as a team. But it's just the first game."
