First defender to score a Champions League Hat trick- Layvin Kurzawa (PSG 2017)

Paris Saint-Germain player Layvin Kurzawa has become the first defender to score a hat trick in the history of the modern Champions League as we know it . Kurzawa scored three goals in the space of 26 second half minutes as PSG thrashed RSC Anderlecht 5-0 to book their spot in the last 16 of the competition.

The 25 year old Kurzawa is also the second PSG player to score a CL hat trick after Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Parisians have now scored 17 goals in four CL group games, with no goals conceded in a group that also includes Bavarian giants Bayern Munich and Scottish champions Celtic.

Gareth Bale (Spurs) and Levian Kobiashvili (Schalke) have also scored CL hat tricks, but were playing at left wing in their respective games.
