Soccer-PSG sail into last 16 as Kurzawa nets hat trick in rout of Anderlecht

PARIS, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Paris St Germain qualified for the Champions League last 16 in emphatic fashion when they extended their perfect Group B record with a home 5-0 win against Anderlecht on Tuesday, with fullback Layvin Kurzawa scoring a hat-trick.

Neymar, back in the team after being sent off during the French ‘classic’ against Olympique de Marseille, scored the second goal on the stroke of halftime after Marco Verratti’s opener, with Kurzawa completing the scoreline after the interval.

PSG have 12 points from four games and lead Bayern Munich, who beat Celtic 2-1 away, by three points.
