Kylian Mbappe may not have been in the company of his usual attacking partners for the festive night but, evidently, he did not need either Cavani or Neymar to land himself in the Champions League’s history books.
After a rather atypical start, the French starlet responded with a second half strike against Manchester United that may prove very crucial in the second leg at Parc des Princes.
Before Mbappe landed on the scoresheet, his compatriot Presnel Kimpembe handed Les Parisien the lead after smashing home Angel Di Maria’s corner-kick from close range in the 53rd minute.
The Argentine winger who had been subjected to jeers by fans of his former club silenced the Old Trafford with yet another assist for Kylian Mbappe seven minutes later following a quick counterattacking move.
With the former AS Monaco prodigy now reaching 14 Champions League goal, the competitions record books were revised as he equaled the career tally of Real Madrid legend Ronaldo Nazario.
