Kylian Mbappe Set A Champions League Record, Tonight

Kylian Mbappe Set A Champions League Record, Tonight

What a player

Kylian Mbappe just does not stop.

The 18-year-old Monaco striker has taken world football by storm, this season, scoring 23 goals in 50 appearances (at the time of writing, at least). And he was at it again during Monaco's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Borussia Dortmund.

It took just three minutes for the French teenager to give his team the lead on the night, extending their aggregate advantage to 4-2 against the Bundesliga giants.

The prodigious striker once again demonstrated his dead eyed ability to ease the ball into the back of the net in a manner that belies his tender years.

In doing so, tonight, Mbappe set a new Champions League record.

The French teenager's early effort against Dortmund meant Mbappe is now the first player in history to score in his first four Champions League knockout games, having scored in the first leg against BVB and both legs of Monaco's round of 16 tie with Manchester City.

Mbappe has five goals in total to his name in this season's competition as Monaco look to book their place in the semi-finals for the first time since the 2003/2004 season, when Patrice Evra, Jerome Rothen and co reached the final, only to be soundly beaten 3-0 by Jose Mourinho's Porto, in Gelsenkirchen.

Radamel Falcao added a second for the Ligue 1 leaders in the first half to all but secure Leonardo Jardim's team's place in the last four of the competition.
