Mbappe’s PSG ran out comfortable 4-1 winners in the round of 16 first leg tie to give themselves a massive chance of progressing to the last eight.

Barca defender Gerard Pique also tried to get in on the altercation by asking “Who are you going to kill?” and he ended up getting a similar response from him.
Luckily, his team mate Moise Kean was on hand to diffuse the situation before it got out of hand.
