Paris Saint-Germain star, Julian Draxler has hailed fellow team-mate, Kylian Mbappe following his performance during PSG's thrilling 3-2 win over Bayern Munich in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League on Wednesday.

Mbappe scored a brace on the night to give Mauricio Pochettino's men a crucial away goal lead going into the second leg in Paris, and Draxler believes that the Frenchman possesses quality that no other player in the game can boast of.

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

Mbappe for his part admitted that he was looking forward to taking on the European Champions and one of the finest goalkeepers in the game, in the form of Manuel Neuer.

"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."

The 22-year-old has without doubt supplanted Neymar as the best player in Paris and has been brilliant this season, scoring 32 goals in all competitions this season.
