Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe set a sensational Champions League record after starring in his side's victory over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

Pogba: Expectations of me are unfair

The highly-rated forward netted twice as the Ligue 1 side downed Dortmund 3-2 in the first leg of their quarter-final clash, putting Leonardo Jardim's men in pole position to reach the last four.

And, in doing so, Mbappe became the youngest player to score twice in a Champions League knockout fixture at the age of 18 years and 113 days old.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United have all been linked with Mbappe after his incredible displays have also put Monaco in with a chance of winning the Ligue 1 title this season.

Mbappe has now scored 21 goals in all competitions for Monaco so far this season following his Dortmund double, with two of those strikes helping see off Manchester City in the Champions League last 16.

He also became the first player since City's Leroy Sane to score on his first three knockout stage appearances in the Champions League against Dortmund, in what was a memorable night for him.

Only Stoke City loanee Bojan, formerly of Barcelona, has netted in a Champions League quarter-final tie at a younger age (17 years and seven months old) than Mbappe as well.
