How long for Mbapee to take part in 50 UEFA Champions League games? Less than Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi

It takes 22years and 399 days for Mbapee to take part in 50 UEFA Champions League games.Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe entered the starting line-up of his team when facing Manchester City in the fifth round of group A in 2021/2022 UEFA Champions League in the early hours of this morning Beijing time. Mbappe thus reached the milestone of making his 50th appearance in the Champions League at the age of 22 years and 399 days.
According to OptaAnalyst, Mbappe became the third youngest player in history to make 50 Champions League appearances when he starts the match. Before him, only the legendary Spanish goalkeeper Casillas (22 years and 155 days) and Cesc Fabregas (22 years and 331 days), who has played for Chelsea, Arsenal and Barcelona, have spent less time than him.
Mbappe has played four matches for Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League this season. In those four games, Mbappe has produced one goal and five assists, with his only Champions League goal so far this season coming in the 3rd round of the group stage at home against Red Bull Leipzig. In that match, Mbappe scored in the 9thminute with the help of an assit from Draxler. However, he conceded a penalty that he created later in the game and failed to score twice.
Mbappe, who has been a key young player for the French national team and Paris Saint-Germain for several years, has had a very satisfying season in the Champions League. Mbappe has also adapted quickly to the change in role following the arrival of Lionel Messi, whom the team picked up on the free agent market this summer. The only question now is: will Mbappe want to stay at Paris Saint-Germain after this season?
