Mbappé, to the assault of the record goleador of Cavani

That kylian mbappe will dethrone Edinson Cavani as the top scorer in the history of Paris Saint-Germain is evidence. You just need to know when. The Frenchman only needs two goals to overcome the "bullfighter" Uruguayan who left the French capital with 200 goals.

The Marseille Velodrome stadium appears as the ideal setting for the French footballer to achieve that mark and it is precisely the place to which PSG will travel this Sunday for a new "classic" of French football.

The player aspires to that record with only 24 yearsnine less than those who had the "charrúa" when he placed him at that barrier exactly three years ago.

Cavani was the PSG’s top scorer since in 2017 he surpassed the 156 goals scored by the Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who in turn surpassed the one established by the Portuguese Pedro Pauleta, with 109 in 2008.

But the speed with which Mbappé can achieve the record is amazing.

The French striker is two goals behind Cavani with 56 games less than the Uruguayan and ahead of him he still has at least two more years of contract with the French clubwhich can raise the record to stratospheric figures.

Mbappé is already, since last October, PSG’s top scorer in the Champions League, when he scored his 31st goal in a group stage match against Benfica, thus ousting Cavani from that mark.

Since then, the French attacker has added another three goals in the highest European competitionto which he adds 134 in the French league, 27 in the French Cup, two in the League Cup and one more in the French Super Cup.

Wearing the PSG jersey, the young French star has scored 20 times from penalties, 151 with his right foot, 42 with his left and five with his head, and he has yet to make his debut as a free-kick.

To the goals he has added with PSG, Mbappé adds the 27 he achieved in the two seasons he was in the Monaco first teamwith whom he played 60 games.

He is also the sixth top scorer for the French team, with whom he has scored 36 goals in 66 games.

In the last World Cup, in which he finished as the competition’s top scorer with 8 goals, he surpassed Youri Djorkaef (28), Jea-Pierre Papin (30), Just Fontaine (30), Zinedine Zidane (31) and David Trezeguet ( 34) on the list of goalscorers with the "blue".

Mbappé has time to also finish as the top scorer with his team. He separates a goal from Karim Benzema, who has already put an end to his international stage.

Ahead would be only Michel Platini (41), Antoine Griezmann (42), Thierry Henry (51) and Oliver Giroud, who in Qatar placed the top scorer barrier for the French team at 53 goals.
