Neymar, Mbappe both strike as PSG ease past Anderlecht

BRUSSELS -- Paris Saint-Germain needed less than three minutes to stamp their authority on Wednesday's Champions League match against Anderlecht and coasted to a 4-0 victory over the Belgian champions.

Kylian Mbappe scored on a balmy night with a drive from a tight angle early on before setting up Edinson Cavani for a tap-in header in the 44th minute.

And after half-time, the world's most expensive player, Neymar, also had his moment -- sending a low free kick under the soaring defenders and past goalkeeper Matz Sels in the 66th.

Angel Di Maria closed out the scoring in the 88th minute, putting PSG on 12 goals for and none against to go with three victories atop Group B with nine points.
