Champions League: Long-term Arsenal Target Makes History

Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker Kylian Mbappe made Champions League history after he came off the bench to help his team to a thumping win over Club Brugge FC of Belgium in their Group A clash.

Kylian Mbappe and PSG maintained their perfect record in the Champions League this season following the thumping 5-0 victory at the home of their Belgian opponents.

Long-term Arsenal target Mbappe came on for Cameroonian international Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in the second half of the game with PSG leading by a lone goal courtesy the seventh minute strike from the in-form Mauro Icardi.

Kylian Mbappe is gradually working his way back to full fitness after an injury layoff.

He made his first appearance back from injury at the weekend during the league win at OGC Nice.

Mbappe was amongst the goals as PSG thrashed OGC Nice 4-1 away from home to extend their lead at the top of the French Ligue 1 table.

He was also a substitute during that Nice game.

The French World Cup winner made it two goals in two games by adding a second goal for PSG vs Club Brugge before the aforementioned Icardi scored his brace to put his team three goals up.

Mbappe added two goals to make it a comprehensive win for PSG and also complete his hattrick in just 22 minutes thus making history in the process.

He now has the record for the fastest hattrick from a substitute in the Champions League.
