Mbappe shined for the reigning Ligue 1 champions last season, as he topped France’s top flight in goals with 28 and also tallied six goals in UEFA Champions League play, including his two goals in the round of 16 tie against Real Madrid.
The French forward sure has what it takes to win next year’s Ballon d’Or honor, and his odds for the award would take a keen boost if he can help lead PSG to a UEFA Champions League victory later this season.
