As Paris St. Germain crushed Lille to maintain their winning start to the season, kylian mbapp scores fastest goal in ligue 1 history
In Sunday’s decisive 7-1 victory against Lille, Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain tied the record for the fastest goal in Ligue 1 history by scoring in just eight seconds as part of a hat-trick.
Almost immediately after kickoff, the 23-year-old expertly hoisted over Leo Jardim, matching Michel Rio’s eight-second goal for Caen versus Cannes in 1992, according to Ligue 1.
The winners then put on an absolutely overpowering performance, scoring three goals before halftime thanks to goals from Lionel Messi, Achraf Hakimi, and Neymar.
After the break, Neymar and Jonathan Bamba traded goals before Mbappe scored two more goals in the closing 24 minutes to complete a standout performance.
PSG got off to a strong start when Mbappe grabbed Messi’s pass over the top and lobbed Jardim in just ten seconds.
Midway through the first half, Mbappe rounded Jardim and shot wide, but Messi increased the visitors’ lead with a crisp finish from 12 yards following a deft one-two with Nuno Mendes.
Six minutes before halftime, Hakimi added a third goal with a cool finish after Neymar had set him up. Four minutes later, Messi joined the fun with a goal of his own after a deflected pass landed pleasantly for him.
After a superb move from Mbappe, Neymar scored his second goal seven minutes into the second half. Bamba then equalized for Lille with a close-range strike after Gianluigi Donnarumma had stopped his original attempt.
Once more, Mbappe and Neymar worked together brilliantly to make it 6-1 as the former scored. Three minutes before the end of the game, they resumed their battle when Mbappe pounced on a pass from Neymar to smash past Jardim and seal an easy victory.
When Michel Rio scored for Caen against Cannes in 1992, it was the only other time in a Ligue 1 game that a goal was scored that quickly.
Mbappé scored his first of two goals on the day and his second of the year. A big day for PSG has just started. PSG cruised to a 7-1 triumph—its fourth victory of the year—thanks to Neymar’s two goals and Messi‘s additional strike.
This season will undoubtedly feature many great goals for PSG given its strong team, but this specific highlight created history.
