Champions League: Mbappe equals Thierry Henry’s goal record



Paris Saint-Germain attacker, Kylian Mbappe, on Tuesday, equalled Arsenal legend Thierry Henry’s Champions League goals record.

He achieved the feat after scoring a goal in PSG’s Champions League 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund.

Recall that goals from Mbappe and Achraf Hakimi ensured PSG defeated Dortmund in France.

His goal against the Bundesliga giants was his 35th with PSG in the Champions League.

It is also the same number Henry scored with Arsenal during his time at the club, according to FootballTransfers.

Meanwhile, Mbappe is still well distant from the 78 goals that former Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema achieved with the Los Blancos.

Mbappe’s contract with PSG will expire at the end of the season, and he has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.
