Champions League: Kylian Mbappe breaks Messi’s record

Kylian Mbappe, the Paris Saint-Germain striker, has become the youngest player to cross 20 goals in Champions League history.

Mbappe has broken a record previously held by Lionel Messi of Barcelona.

The France international scored twice as PSG hammered Istanbul Basaksehir 5-1 in a rescheduled Champions League game on Wednesday.

Mbappe scored from the penalty spot in the 42nd minute to make it 3-0 after Neymar got a brace.

At 21 years and 355 days, Mbappe becomes the youngest player to reach 20 career goals in the competition, with Messi previously holding the record at 22 years and 266 days.

The top five include Raul, Alessandro Del Piero and Karim Benzema.

Mbappe’s record came just days after he reached another career milestone, scoring his 100th goal for PSG with his strike against Montpellier.
