Kylian Mbappe and PSG faced Borussia Dortmund at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday and the French forward wasted no time in adding his name to the goalscoring books of this Champions League campaign.
Thanks to his latest goal scored against BVB on Tuesday evening, from the penalty spot, Mbappe hit his 35th score in the UCL while donning the PSG jersey, matching fellow Frenchman Thierry Henry's record of 35 goals for Arsenal in the same competition.
Among French players, only Karim Benzema, with a ridiculous 78 goals for Real Madrid in the Champions League, is still ranked ahead of Henry and Mbappe in terms of Champions League goals scored for a single team in the tournament.
Mbappe broke another figure put up by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. By contributing to a scoring play at least once per game (either with a goal or an assist) for 16 consecutive matches, Mbappe has outperformed the five-time and seven-time Ballon d'Or winners, who achieved this feat 15 times throughout their time at Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
Mbappe now shares this record with Neymar and Robert Lewandowski, both of whom have also achieved this feat in 16 consecutive matches.
Another goal/assist in the next game in the Ligue 1 would put Mbappe above everyone else in this particular department.
