At 20 years and four months of age, he is the youngest person ever to achieve 30 goals in a year in the French top-flight.
Mbappe could surpass Phiippe Gondet's record for Ligue 1 goals in a season with six more in PSG's three remaining games. Bondet notched 36 for Nantes in the 1965-66 campaign.
Current European Golden Shoe leader Lionel Messi has 33 goals this season and if Mbappe were to equal or surpass Bondet's mark, he would surely challenge for that crown too.
Mbappe's achievement looks even better when bearing in mind many of the great forwards of eras gone by, including Pippo Inzaghi, Andriy Shevchenko, Michael Owen, Didier Drogba, Gabriel Batistuta, David Trezeguet, Radamel Falcao and Sergio Aguero, have never passed that mark .
Goal has looked back at the ages at which other goalscorers passed the 30-goal barrier in Europe's Top-5 leagues for the first time.
We restricted the list to the last 30 seasons, but as the first of those started a decade before Mbappe was born, that shouldn't make his feat less impressive.
