Kylian Mbappe Hit A Lightning-Quick 36KM/H To Finish Incredible Counter Attack Vs Marseille
Kylian Mbappe hit an impressive 36km/h to score Paris Saint-Germain's opener in their 2-0 win over Marseille.
The Frenchman is already regarded as one of the world's fastest footballers but he took it to new levels on Sunday evening.
Marseille had a corner kick in the eighth minute, which Mauro Icardi managed to head away. Icardi receives the ball from Marco Verratti and plays through Angel Di Maria.
But sprinting into the frame is Mbappe, who darted past the Marseille defence like they weren't even there. Di Maria slid the ball through and Mbappe made no mistake with the finish.

Not a bad way to mark your 150th appearance for the club.
It took the 22-year-old roughly 11 seconds to run box-to-box and turn defence into attack - a second longer than it too Erling Haaland vs PSG last season.
Fans have reacted to the speed on display and it's why Mbappe is a deadly attacker who could get in any team.
