Mbappe sets UCL records tumbling

UEFA Champions League

After delivering yet another Man of the Match display for Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, Kylian Mbappe has set more UEFA Champions League records tumbling.

Fresh from scoring four times across PSG's 5-2 aggregate win over FC Barcelona in the Round of 16, Mbappe continued his remarkable form in front of goal in the Champions League by netting twice more during the Parisians' 3-2 quarter-final first-leg victory over Bayern Munich.

In doing so, the prolific Frenchman became the first-ever player to score five away goals in the knockout stages of the competition, with his brace against the reigning champions on Wednesday following on from the hat-trick he netted at the Nou Camp in February.

The 22-year-old has now netted eight goals in total in this season's Champions League, second only to Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland (10), which is also a joint-record in the tournament by a French player, level with Wissam Ben Yedder and David Trezeguet, per Opta.

His latest exploits add to the list of records he already holds in Europe's premier competition, which includes the milestones of being the youngest player to reach 10 goals and 25 goals, while he needs just three more strikes to become the youngest to achieve 30 goals as well.
