Kylian Mbappe aims brutal dig at Newcastle after controversial PSG Champions League draw

Kylian Mbappe threw a dig at Newcastle United after Paris Saint-Germain snatched a late draw in their Champions League clash on Tuesday evening.

Alexander Isak opened the scoring for Newcastle inside 24 minutes at the Parc des Princes.

Eddie Howe's side thought they'd done enough to hold on for all three points, but it unravelled controversially during added time.

Tino Livramento was judged to have handled an Ousmane Dembele cross despite the ball striking his body before his arm.

Referee Szymon Marciniak initially waved off protests from PSG players.

VAR intervened and awarded PSG a spot kick, which Mbappe dispatched in the 98th minute.

Luis Enrique's men dominated the game, registering a whopping 31 shots. In contrast, Newcastle failed to have a shot on target after Isak's goal.

He said: ‘It’s frustrating because we dominated this team from start to finish.

"They have nothing. We knew it was their game to have nothing but we have to finish our chances better.

"We have too many chances for a Champions League match. It’s not the structure or the organisation, it’s us the players. We need to be much more diligent in front of goal.

"In tough matches, we have to kill, we had too many chances. Normally we should win the match by a wide margin.

"There is nothing to be relieved about. We have to stay under pressure because we have a match to win and we are going there to win it."

Newcastle will now have to beat AC Milan on matchday six to have any chance of qualifying from Group F.

They'll also need PSG to drop points to Borussia Dortmund, who have already qualified after a 3-1 win at the San Siro.
