WATCH: Kylian Mbappe breaks incredible Champions League record against Borussia Dortmund
It’s safe to say Kylian Mbappe is the talk of the town right now.
The Monaco whizkid is putting every single opponent he faces to the sword at the moment, with the Champions League particularly a competition he’s flourishing in.
And after yet another goal in Europe’s primary tournament against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night, Mbappe duly broke an incredible Champions League record.

The 18-year-old’s strike inside the first ten minutes meant he became the first person in the competition’s history to score in their first four knockout games.
That’s by virtue of scoring home and away against Dortmund in the quarter-finals, as he did against Manchester City in the last 16.
Before his goal tonight he’d joined the likes of Liverpool cult hero Luis Garcia by scoring in his first three, but now he’s moved ahead of the rest of the pack.
It’s now 22 in all competitions for the season for the French striker, which is all the more astonishing considering he didn’t score his first until late October.
He is being linked with a number of Europe’s biggest clubs this summer and is tipped to follow in the footsteps of Thierry Henry and Anthony Martial by leaving Monaco at a tender age.
Wherever he decides to go, a world record transfer is in the offing…
