Kylian Mbappe sends two Juventus players to the shops, scores outrageous goal

Kylian Mbappe scored an outrageous solo goal to put Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 up away at Juventus.

PSG regained possession in the middle of the park and the ball was fed wide to Mbappe, who immediately embarrassed Federico Gatti with a lovely piece of skill.

Manuel Locatelli, who had given the ball away in the sequence, tried to make amends by sliding in but ended up getting sent to the shops by Mbappe.


He jinked inside with a deft drop of the shoulder before unleashing a fine finish into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

It was Mbappe's 18th goal of the season and he celebrated with his usual arms-folding stance at the Allianz Stadium.

Mbappe's strike was again assisted by seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi, who is having a stunning second season at PSG after dipping a little below his standards last term.

The 23-year-old's Champions League tally now stands at 40 and he is the youngest player to reach that impressive number.

The World Cup has already achieved a whole lot in his career and signed a mouthwatering deal at PSG to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes.

Michael Owen, who won the Ballon d'Or at 21 after a stellar year with Liverpool and England, recently compared himself to the Frenchman.

"Well, what’s Mbappe worth nowadays? I really don't know," Owen said sked by AceOdds what his transfer fee would be today.

"If he was to leave PSG you'd be looking at £150/£200 million maybe? So if a Mbappe was worth 150/200 [million], I don't know...

"But yeah, I was that similar type of player who was breaking through, winning the Ballon d'Or, won two Golden Boots and went to the World Cup at 18 and all that kind of stuff."
