Kylian Mbappe opted to stay at Paris Saint-Germain this summer and the French attacker continues to shine on the biggest stages.

PSG kicked off their 2022/23 UEFA Champions League campaign on Tuesday, so naturally Mbappe stole the spotlight again.

Mbappe went out and recorded a first-half brace after linking up with Neymar on several occassions.

Entering the match, PSG were favorites. Not just against Juventus, but one of the decisive picks to win this season's competition.

Mbappe and Co. showed that they're formidable against one of Italy's most historic sides.

Meanwhile, the Frenchman continues to build on his legacy, which already features a World Cup title.

With his brace Tuesday, Mbappe is now tied for 20th all time in Champions League goals with 35.

He's only 23 years old.

Mbappe has already passed legends like Gerd Muller, Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez.

The sparkling attacker needs just 13 goals to reach the top 10 and at this rate it's conceivable he could do so in the next two seasons.

When Mbappe made waves this summer by remaining at PSG he was met with massive criticism.

Turning down Real Madrid was viewed as a sin, but Kylian Mbappe is still thriving and seemingly improving with every match.
