Mbappe has scored 18 goals for PSG this season and that strike proved historic

The 13th-minute goal saw Mbappe score his 40th goal in Europe’s premier club competition.

And at 23 years and 317 days, Mbappe is the youngest player to reach that number of Champions League goals.

Leonardo Bonucci equalized for the hosts in the 33rd minute but PSG lost 2-1 thanks to Nuno Mendes’ second-half goal.

However, the French champions were forced to settle for second place in Group H, with Benfica leapfrogging them to first place on away goals as they cruised to a 6-1 victory at Maccabi Haifa.

Mbappe previously put pen to paper on a long-term deal to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, having snubbed advances from Real Madrid and Liverpool in the past.

Former France international Thierry Henry has previously praised Mbappe, saying he is one of the few players to make him ‘jump out of his seat’.

“He’s the kind of player… the other day I was talking to a friend of mine and I was like, ‘There aren’t a lot of people who are going to make me jump out of my seat or make me scream ‘” Henry said on CBS Sports. .

“That’s what you want to see, that’s why you turn on your TV, because you want to see people unlock something.

“I always talk about one on one, all the time the coach tells you: ‘The ball has to go there, the ball has to go there, you have to take it out, change it’. What happened to instinct? What happened to one on one? And this guy has plenty.
