Kylian Mbappe breaks the record

With his extra-time goal against Nantes in Ligue One on Sunday, French superstar Kylian Mbappe eclipsed Edison Cavani to take the top spot among all time goal scorers for Paris Saint-Germain with 201.

Mbappe received the ball inside the Nantes box in the 90+2nd minute and used his power to hold off the defender on his shoulder before turning and putting the ball past goalkeeper Alban Lafort to secure his place in PSG's annals.

Next week, PSG will visit Bayern Munich in an effort to avenge a 1-0 loss Ludovic Blas and Ignatius Ganago helped the Canaries tie the score before halftime.

However, Christophe Galtier's team secured all three points thanks to goals from Mbappe and Danilo with seconds remaining, giving them 63 points after 26 games.

Messi's left-footed volley from Fabian Ruiz's pass gave PSG the lead in the 12th minute, giving them the perfect start.

Five minutes later, Alban Lafont deflected Nuno Mendes' shot into the path of Hadjam, who threw the ball into his own goal while being pressed by Nordi Mukiele to give PSG a 2-0 lead.

However, Blas cut the deficit with a beautiful effort past Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 31st minute. Seven minutes later, Ganago deflected a corner past the goalkeeper Italian goalkeeper to tie the game.

However, order was restored 15 minutes into the second half when Danilo headed in a cross from Mbappe before the France forward scored his record goal with a left-footed shot from inside the area.

However, the night was not as pleasant for PSG as Mukiele was taken off with a heel issue, and in the 75th minute, centre back Marquinhos returned to the locker room with what looked to be a lower back issue.
