Last season’s Champions League finalist lost his star Neymar in the middle of the first half after apparently pulling a muscle.
Moise Kean continued his impressive form after two goals that helped Paris Saint-Germain to their first victory in the Champions League campaign 2020/21 against Istanbul Basaksehir.
Everton’s striker Moise Kean was on loan to French champions PSG for the rest of the 2020/21 season.
The Italian scored his second goal of the evening in the 79th minute with a fine finish in the corner inside the penalty area after collecting Kylian Mbappe’s pass.
And after a goalless opening, borrowed striker Everton opened the scoring on 64 minutes with a close-range header.
“I am especially happy with my teammates. We played away, which is not easy.
The youngster’s brace came just days after he had gone off the field in Ligue 1 with a brace in his team’s win over Dijon at the weekend in Ligue 1.
“We suffered towards the end of the first half. But we played a good game and held out until the end,” Kean said after the game.
Kean’s double means he is now the youngest Italian player to score a goal in his first appearance as a starter in the Champions League – a record previously held by Alessandro Del Piero.
“We held out and won. This start will give me strength.”
The striker joined the French champions for the rest of the 2020/21 season in the final phase of the transfer window in the summer, having already scored two League Cup goals for the Blues this season.

Earlier this month, Kean said in a speech that he was on his way: “I’m not particularly upset about leaving English football, even though the Everton fans’ banner really moved me because I didn’t expect it to.
“It’s true I could have returned to Juve, but I made this decision together with my family to play in Ligue 1. I have been to Paris before and I have relatives here.
“I hope I can learn a lot from this fantastic experience. I’m young, I like to work closely with top strikers, so I can learn from their experience and their football style”.
