French Ligue 1: Mbappe scores record 100th PSG goal in victory over Montpellier

Kylian Mbappe scored his 100th goal for Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain as they beat Montpellier.

Colin Dagba put PSG ahead with the first goal of his career from Angel di Maria’s ball.

English forward Stephy Mavididi, 22, equalised from close range.

After the break, Moise Kean scored a fine goal from a tight angle to put the Ligue one champions ahead.

Mbappe tapped home from close range at the nick of stoppage time for his landmark goal in his 137th game for the club.

He is only the fifth player to reach 100 PSG goals after Edinson Cavani (200), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (156), Pauleta (109) and Dominique Rocheteau (100).

The France international also scored 27 goals for Monaco before his £165m move to his hometown club.

Neymar was rested by PSG, and Mbappe was only a substitute, in preparation for Tuesday’s crucial Champions League game against Istanbul Basaksehir.
