Before Mbappé: 13 players scored a hat-trick against FC Barcelona since 1992 – SportsAlert

Most recently in the UCL in 1997

“The biggest footballers write their history in the biggest games,” Paris Saint-Germain head coach Mauricio Pochettino said (cited by Spox) after his club’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. Pochettino was speaking about superstar Kylian Mbappé, the 22-year-old sunk Barça on his own with his hattrick. Since the Champions League’s foundation in 1992, only 14 players have managed to score a hattrick against Barça—across all competitions.

It has been almost 25 years since any player managed to score a hattrick in the Champions League against Barcelona. On Nov. 5, 1997, a 21-year-old Andriy Shevchenko scored three goals for Dynamo Kyiv in their 4-0 victory over the Catalans. Just two months prior, the Colombian Faustino Asprilla managed a hattrick as well. Asprilla scored a hattrick in Newcastle United‘s 3-2 win over Barça on Sep. 17, 1997.
