Kylian Mbappe, who became the first player since Geoff Hurst in 1966 to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final in December, has 201 goals in 247 games for PSG.
Kylian Mbappe arrives in Munich fresh from a record-breaking weekend with Paris Saint-Germain, determined to lead the French giants past Bayern and into the Champions League quarter-finals. PSG trail 1-0 from the first leg of the heavyweight last-16 tie, with Mbappe limited to a cameo appearance off the bench last month due to injury. Nonetheless, the 24-year-old France superstar did enough in his brief appearance, including having a goal disallowed for a marginal offside, to demonstrate that he can swing the tie in the Parisians’ favour.
Since that game, the Ligue 1 leaders have recovered from a troubling slump in form to win three straight domestic games while scoring 11 goals.
Mbappe has five of them, including one in Saturday’s 4-2 win over Nantes, which moved him past Edinson Cavani to become PSG’s all-time leading scorer, five and a half years after joining from Monaco.
The player who scored a hat-trick in a World Cup final for the first time since Geoff Hurst in 1966 has a remarkable record of 201 goals from 247 games in a PSG shirt.
“Every player plays to make a mark and ensure that his name is not forgotten in football history. I believe that this record will help people remember me here “Mbappe said after being presented with a trophy by PSG in front of an adoring crowd.
Mbappe has 30 goals in 30 games for his club this season and has a strong claim to be the best player in the world right now, even if Lionel Messi recently pipped him to the Best FIFA Men’s Player award.
