Kylian Mbappé sets yet another milestone.
With his goal against Lens on Saturday night, Kylian Mbappé became the lone leading scorer in Ligue 1 history for Paris Saint-Germain with 139 goals. At the top of the table, he has surpassed his former teammate Edinson Cavani.
Record after a record is being broken by him. Kylian Mbappé scored his 139th goal in Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday night at the Parc des Princes, giving PSG a lead over RC Lens (3-1). The French international is currently writing even more Rouge et Bleu history after already breaking the club’s record for goals scored in all competitions.
After scoring the opening goal in the Ligue 1 match on Matchday 31, Kylian Mbappé claimed his 29th French league victim, RC Lens. They were the only French team he had faced up until that point that had not scored for Paris. Kylian Mbappé has made Dijon his favorite victim during his six seasons with the capital club, scoring 11 goals against DFCO in the top flight. The native of Paris, who is used to making the difference in big games, sees AS Monaco and Olympiakos round out the top three of the teams he has scored the most goals against in league play with the club from the capital (9 goals).
Kylian Mbappé is already ranked in the top 20 among scorers in the top five leagues still playing in Europe’s top divisions. He is in front of players like Thomas Muller, Marco Reus, Eden Hazard, and Sadio Mané. His fellow forward from Paris, Leo Messi, is heavily dominating the list. Two former Rouge et Bleu stars who are well known to the club from the capital are also at the top of the list: Edinson Cavani of Valencia and Zlatan Ibrahimovic of AC Milan.
Returning to the same rankings but this time only including French strikers, we can see that Kylian Mbappé has already surpassed the top five. The Paris Saint-Germain striker, who is 24 years old, is quickly closing in on the positions held by Karim Benzema (Real Madrid), Antoine Griezmann (Atlético de Madrid), Alexandre Lacazette (Olympique Lyonnais), Wissam Ben Yedder (AS Monaco), and Kévin Gameiro (RC Strasbourg).
