Real Madrid v Tottenham Hotspur - UEFA Champions League
Two players who went head to head this midweek

Champions League has always seen the best brand of football being played in the world and gameweek 3 was no exception. Right from Real Madrid's entertaining match-up with Tottenham Hotspur to Chelsea's pulsating 3-3 draw with AS Roma, these midweek games were absolutely brilliant, to say the least. 

Liverpool created a bit of history whereas Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi also had a hand in some fine individual feats. All that and a lot more will be discussed in the five moments from this week's Champions League which caught our eye: 

#5 Kylian Mbappe becomes the highest-scoring teenager in the history of the competition

RSC Anderlecht v Paris Saint-Germain - UEFA Champions League
Mbappe now has 8 goals in 12 Champions League matches

The French sensation just cannot seem to stay away from the limelight! In PSG's 4-0 win over Anderlecht, Mbappe got on the scoresheet as he scored his side's second goal of the night. In doing that, Mbappe became the highest-scoring teenager in Champions League history beating the record previously held by Patrick Kluivert during his time with Ajax. 

Mbappe has already scored eight goals in twelve appearances in Europe and with 14 months to go for his 20th birthday, the teenager can make this feat his own for a long, long time. Kluivert managed seven goals in two seasons for Ajax whereas Karim Benzema is third on the list with six goals for Lyon before turning 20. 

The other two in this elite list have won the Champions League in their top-flight career which increases the responsibility on the shoulders of the player considered to be the future of PSG. No pressure, kid!
