PSG’s Kylian Mbappé Scores Fastest Goal in Ligue 1 History

In its Sunday match against Lille, Paris Saint-Germain got off to a lightning-fast start.

Kylian Mbappé received the ball forward to start the game courtesy of a trio of Neymar, Marco Verratti, and Lionel Messi.

With a goal eight seconds into the game, he put PSG on the board.

It matched the Ligue 1 record for the quickest goal ever scored.

The only other occasion that happened in a Ligue 1 game was when Michel Rio scored for Caen against Cannes in 1992, doing so in just eight seconds.

Mbappé scored twice that day, the first being his second goal of the year.

It began a huge day for PSG. Neymar scored two goals, and Messi also scored, helping PSG cruise to a 7-1 victory⁠—its fourth win of the season.

Considering its potent lineup, PSG is almost certainly set up for many memorable goals this season, but this particular highlight made history.

The final score of the match was 7-1.
