Kylian Mbappe, the top scorer on Saturday against Lens during the 31st day at the Parc des Princes, scored his 139th goal with Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 and became the capital club’s top scorer in the league.
Another record for Kylian Mbappe. In search of a goal for three matches, the French international set his sights today, Saturday, during Lens’ reception of the shock of the thirty-first day of the French League. After a logical dismissal of Salis Abdel Samad for a very dangerous tackle on Achraf Hakimi, Bondy’s crack at the Parc des Princes turned for the first time of the evening.
In an action initiated by Lionel Messi, the French found Vitenia near the surface. The Portuguese delivered it and Mbappe managed to turn around to open the scoring with a low shot into the inside corner (31). His 139th league achievement with Paris Saint-Germain made him the club’s top scorer in Ligue 1, ahead of Edinson Cavani.

An assist for Messi
With 20 goals, Kylian Mbappe meanwhile regained the lead in the goalscoring list, just ahead of Jonathan David and Alexandre Lacazette (19), the team’s top scorers on Friday against Toulouse (1-2). The Parisian also became the first player to score at least 20 times in four different Ligue 1 seasons since Pauleta (2018-2019, 2020-2021, 2021-2022 and therefore 2022-2023).
The 2018 world champion then swapped his top scorer’s uniform for a bystander’s for PSG’s third goal, scored by Lionel Messi. The Argentine merged perfectly with his friend, the author of his fifth assist of the season with a hidden heel (40) to – without a doubt – come out of the meeting and the tournament definitively.
