UEFA Champions League

"Paris Saint_Germain star Kylian Mbappe" broke a Champions League record held by Lionel Messi

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe broke a UEFA Champions League record held by Lionel Messi after scoring in his side's big win over "Istanbul Basaksehir".

With qualification to the UEFA Champions League already wrapped up due to Manchester United's loss to "RB Leipzig" on Tuesday, Paris Saint-Germain needed the win to secure top spot in Group H.


The clash had to be rescheduled from Tuesday to Wednesday after players from both sides walked off the pitch due to an alleged racist incident involving the fourth official and Istanbul assistant Pierre Webo.


While the night belonged to hat-trick hero Neymar, Mbappe managed to get PSG's third goal of the encounter just before the break to take his tally to 20 career goals in the tournament.


The Frenchman is now the youngest player to reach the milestone in the Champions League at the age of 21, breaking the record which Messi set with FC Barcelona when he was 22.


21years - Kylian Mbappé has now scored 20 goals in the UEFA Champions League, becoming the youngest player in the competition's history to reach this goal tally. Phenomenon.
