Mbappe Breaks Messi UCL Record Vs Tau's Brugge

Kylian Mbappe ran riot off the bench against Percy Tau's Club Brugge on Tuesday night, breaking a UEFA Champions League set by Lionel Messi along the way.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar entered the game at the Jan Breydelstadion in the 52nd minute when he came on to replace Eric Choupo-Moting.

It took him just nine minutes to find the back of the net and make it 2-0 after Mauro Icardi had given PSG an early lead in the first half.

Mbappe then provided the assist for Icardi's second strike of the match to make it 3-0, before adding two more goals himself.

It was his first goal, though, that saw him make Champions League history. That strike was his 15th in the competition, making him the youngest player to reach this milestone at the age of 20 years and 306 days.

He broke Messi's record, who was 21 years and 288 days when he reached 15 UCL goals, while Raul Gonzalez was 22 years and 163 days when he scored his 15th strike in the competition.

Overall, Mbappe has now scored 17 goals in 27 Champions League appearances.

It was a night to forget for Tau and Brugge, though, but they will have a chance to produce a positive response when they face Les Parisiens in the return clash at the Parc des Princes on 6 November.

Do you think Mbappe can reach Cristiano Ronaldo's record for the most goals in the Champions League history? Have your say in the comments section below.
