With a simple tap in moments before the end of the match, Kylian Mbappe scored PSG’s final goal in a 3-1 win over Montpellier and his 100th for the Parisian club.

The strike was the forward’s ninth goal in 12 appearances for Thomas Tuchel’s side this season, as the 21-year-old forward continues his rise to becoming one of Europe’s most impressive talents.

Mbappe joined PSG in 2017 from Monaco on an initial loan deal, which was made permanent with a fee reported to be around £130 million. And he hasn’t stopped scoring since then.

The young player’s first 100 goals for the club came in 137 appearances in all competitions, with 74 coming in the French top flight, 13 coming in the French Cup and 13 coming in the Champions League for the Parisian club.

said the striker after Saturday’s match on Canal+.

“Thank you to my teammates and to the club who have trusted me since I have been here. I have a margin to improve on the assists.

“For my recovery, the selection and the club got along well and it must be said, I was able to work well. The 200 goals are still a long way off.

“We will already have to score goals on Tuesday (in the Champions League, against Basaksehir). I wanted to improve by coming here, I've been there for three and a half years, I haven't had a lot of problems.”
