Games: 71
Goals: 48

By club
Monaco: 9 games, 6 goals
Paris: 62 games, 42 goals

Paris-born Mbappé served notice of his intention with six goals for Monaco in his first season in the Champions League and he has scored at least four times in every campaign since. His tenth Champions League goal, in a 3-1 defeat at Bayern München in December 2017, made him the youngest player to reach that mark at the age of 18 years 350 days.

Erling Haaland has been jostling for records with Mbappé since and the pair will have some of the numbers set by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema in their sights.
