Kylian Mbappe has hit a 45-year high with Paris Saint-Germain, becoming the first teenager since 1973 to reach 30 Ligue 1 goals.
The 19-year-old forward, fresh from helping France to World Cup glory over the summer, has made a devastating return to domestic action.
He was named on the bench by Thomas Tuchel for a trip to Guingamp on Saturday, but was to make a telling contribution in the tie.
Mbappe was introduced for the second half, with PSG surprisingly trailing at the interval.
Neymar restored parity with a 53rd-minute penalty, but the Brazilian was to be left in the shade by his exciting young team-mate.
With eight minutes left on the clock, Mbappe fired the reigning champions in front.
He then added his second and PSG’s third in stoppage-time, ensuring that a perfect start to the 2018-19 campaign is maintained by Tuchel’s side.
Mbappe’s efforts also saw him pass 30 goals in the French top-flight, with that landmark reached in a little over two seasons.
He opened his account for Monaco back in February 2016, before recording 15 efforts in a title-winning 2016-17 campaign.
Another 13 top-flight goals arrived last season and Mbappe is now up and running this term.
PSG will be looking to Mbappe for further inspiration over the coming weeks.
