10 Stars Mbappe Has Already Outscored In The Champions League

Following Kylian Mbappe's incredible hat-trick in the UEFA Champions League this week, here are 10 superstars who have already been outscored by the 20-year-old sensation in Europe's elite competition.

Click through the gallery above to see 10 household names who have already been outscored by Mbappe in the Champions League, according to Transfermarkt.

After coming on as a second-half substitute against Club Brugge on Tuesday night, Mbappe scored a treble to take his tally in Europe's biggest club competition to 17.

The striker, who turns 21 in December, became the first player to score three goals from the bench since 2008, and his first goal, a header, made him the youngest player to bring up 15 strikes in the history of the tournament, a record previously held by Lionel Messi.

After bursting on to the scene with Monaco three years ago, Mbappe has exceeded all expectations in becoming one of the most devastatingly dangerous attacking players in world football, and his numbers in Europe are particularly incredible.

In just 27 Champions League matches, the Paris Saint-Germain man has amassed a total of 17 goals, a figure legendary players such as David Beckham and Pavel Nedved failed to reach.

While the Englishman, who represented Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and PSG in Europe, scored just 16 times in the competition, Nedved, a Juventus icon, struck on just 15 occasions.
