Mbappe's legend continues to grow: His numbers after brace vs. Dortmund

Relive the top moments from Wednesday's Champions League clash between Borussia Dortmund and AS Monaco.
Herculez Gomez doesn't buy the idea that Christian Pulisic is the future of world football.

Monaco defeated Dortmund 3-2 in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal tie at the Westfalenstadion on Wednesday. Dortmund allowed as many goals against Monaco as they did in their previous seven home matches combined.

This was largely due to the performance of Monaco's 18-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe. Only Robert Lewandowski (14) has more goals since Feb. 1 than Mbappe (13).

Mbappe scored twice in Monaco's win, becoming the youngest player with two goals in a Champions League knockout-stage game. With Ousmane Dembele's goal, this was also the first time that two players under the age of 20 managed to score in a Champions League knockout match.

So how good is he and what should we expect?

Mbappe might be Europe's most clinical finisher at the moment. Among 251 players in Europe's top five leagues to take at least 40 shots, Mbappe ranks:

  • First in on-target percentage at 62.2 percent.

  • First in shooting percentage (goals/total shots) at 35.6 percent.

  • Tied for eighth in conversion percentage (goals/shots on goal) at 57.1 percent.
Kylian Mbappe struck twice in Monaco's 3-2 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League quarterfinals.

But Mbappe is most clinical in "big-chance" opportunities. A big-chance opportunity is labeled as a high-quality scoring chance, often a one-on-one or an uncontested shot.

Of 114 players to have at least 10 "big-chance" opportunities, Mbappe ranks third in on-target percentage (93.8 percent), joint-first in shooting percentage (75 percent) and is one of 18 players with a conversion percentage of 80 or better. All of this while turning 18 this past December.

Mbappe does not let his fans wait for his goals, either. Of those players with 40 shots, only Lionel Messi has a better minutes-per-goal rate than Mbappe.

Lowest minutes-per-goal rate -- 2016-17 top five league and European competition (minimum 40 shots)

Lionel Messi, Barcelona, 80.9
Kylian Mbappe, Monaco, 85.9
Alvaro Morata, Madrid, 85.9
Edinson Cavani, PSG, 86.3

So what's next for Mbappe?

Martial Mbappe comparison stats

A player as good as Mbappe would already command a hefty transfer fee at age 24-25, but he is only 18. Monaco had a pacey French youngster leave for a hefty fee two seasons ago in Anthony Martial. And Mbappe is arguably having a much better season.
