Kylian Mbappe hit a brilliant brace against Barcelona to knock the Catalans out of the UEFA Champions League

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe left his mark on the club’s emphatic 4-1 UEFA Champions League second-leg win over Barcelona, scoring a brilliant brace to help his side qualify for the semifinals.

The French striker showcased his undeniable talent and reached three significant milestones that further solidified his status as one of the most formidable attackers in world football.

40 Goals in All Competitions

After a relatively quiet first leg and an hour of intense action in the Champions League tie against Barcelona, Mbappe asserted his dominance with a ruthless penalty kick that propelled his side back in front. His second goal later in the game extinguished any hopes of a Barcelona comeback.

With these goals, Mbappe achieved a remarkable milestone for the season, becoming the first player across Europe's top leagues to score 40 goals in all competitions. His tally includes 24 goals in Ligue 1, eight in the Coupe de France, eight in the Champions League, and one in the Trophee des Champions, showcasing his incredible scoring prowess across various competitions.

Second Most Away Goals in Champions League

Mbappe's impressive performance against Barcelona also highlighted his remarkable record in away matches in the UEFA Champions League. With his 15 away goals, he now ranks second for the most away goals in the history of the competition, trailing only Cristiano Ronaldo, who has 23 away goals to his name.

Mbappe's ability to deliver in high-pressure away fixtures underscores his status as a prolific goal scorer on the European stage.

Favourite Victim - Barcelona

Against Barcelona, Mbappe not only secured victory for his team but also extended his dominance over the Catalan club in the Champions League. With his two goals in the match, Mbappe has now scored a total of six goals against Barcelona in the competition, making them his favourite victim.

This impressive feat further enhances Mbappe's reputation as a formidable force in European football and already endears him to the Real Madrid faithful, who have been linked with a summer move for the talented forward.

As Mbappe continues to dazzle on the pitch and achieve remarkable milestones, his impact on the game continues to grow, cementing his status as one of the brightest stars in world football.
