Kylian Mbappe surpassed Lionel Messi and more greats of the game to set a Champions League record on Tuesday.
PSG vs Club Brugge
PSG are currently locked in Champions League action with Club Brugge at the Parc des Princes.
After losing to Manchester City in their last European outing, PSG were unable to secure top spot in their group.
However, they could still have fallen out of the top two on Tuesday if they lost to Brugge and RB Leipzig beat Manchester City in the other Group A encounter taking place.
But, so far, it looks as though PSG’s passage into the Champions League knockout rounds is now nailed on.
Brugge would hold the Parisian outfit to a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture, but it took PSG less than 10 minutes to have the game fully in their control on Tuesday.
Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring after just two minutes on the day, before the Frenchman added his second of the day five minutes later:
