It took Kylian Mbappe a while, but he now finally has the first 40-goal campaign of his career. The French forward scored the 40th goal of his season during Paris Saint-Germain’s Ligue 1 home fixture against Stade de Reims.
Mbappe will finish off the season not only being PSG’s only 40-plus goal-scorer but also in being the lone Ligue 1 player to reach this figure.
More so, as noted by StatsduFoot, Mbappe is the first French player within Europe’s top five leagues to score at least 40 goals in all competitions in a single campaign since Stephane Guivarc’h did it during the 1997/1998 campaign while with Auxerre.
Mbappe is surely not done yet as PSG still has a pair of fixtures left on its schedule with the upcoming 2021 Coupe de France Final against AS Monaco and the team’s final league fixture of the season coming against Brest.
Mbappe is well already one of the top goal-scorers in the sport today.
