Mbappe fastest ever to 100 Ligue 1 goals as PSG go top

Kylian Mbappe bagged a brace as Paris St-Germain won 4-2 at Lyon to go top of Ligue 1 on Sunday night.

The 22-year-old France striker’s efforts either side of the break saw him become the youngest player to score 100 goals in the French top flight.

Mbappe opened the scoring from a tight angle, before Danilo Pereira made it 2-0 with a half-volley and Angel di Maria added a third early in the second half as Mauricio Pochettino’s men outclass their hosts.

Mbappe netted again before Islam Slimani and Maxwel Cornet responded to reduce the deficit.

Victory lifts PSG to the summit on goal difference above Lille, who were beaten 2-1 at home by Nimes earlier on Sunday.

Mbappe replaces Herve Revelli, who achieved the feat with Saint Etienne in 1969, as the youngest player ever to score 100 goals in the French top flight.

Victory against third-placed Lyon also saw Brazilian forward Neymar return from a six-week injury layoff, coming off the bench to replace Mbappe in the 70th minute.

His return is a timely boost for the Parisians ahead of their Champions League reunion with Bayern Munich early next month.
