Having scored twice in the first leg of the match, it only took 3 minutes of the second leg for the teenager to open the score against the Bundesliga giants. In doing so, Mbappe has set a new Champions League record. The 18-year-old has become the first player in history to score in all his first four knockout games of the competition. His goals have now ensured Monaco’s progress to the semi-finals, where the teenager looks to continue his goalscoring tradition.

Mbappe has attracted interest from a host of top clubs in Europe, having now scored 22 goals in 36 appearances for Monaco this season.
