Kylian Mbappe became the youngest player to hit the 10-goal mark in the UEFA Champions League when he scored for PSG in their 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich.

Kylian Mbappe has been one of the young stars shining brightest in the Champions League over the past two seasons.

Mbappe is nearly two years younger than Karim Benzema, the previous holder of the mark, was when he pulled off the feat at 20 years and ten months.

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and Real Madrid legend Raul both did it when they were age 21 while Wayne Rooney achieved the feat two weeks after his 22nd birthday while playing for Manchester United.

Incredibly, Mbappe achieved this feat in just 15 games and had previously become the highest-scoring teenager in October when he netted against Anderlecht to surpass Patrick Kluivert’s landmark.

The Frenchman who netted six goals last season in the competition has so far scored four goals this term.
