The Champions League is back, as is the latest Kylian Mbappe goalscorer odds, as the Frenchman looks to rocket Paris Saint-Germain into a comfortable lead before heading over to Spain when the Ligue 1 champions meet with Real Sociedad on Wednesday
Mbappe to score first
Heading back into the Champions League, Mbappe is well on track to rack up his best-ever goalscoring season. The elite goalscorer netted 41 times last time out for PSG, 39 the campaign prior and 42 in the 2020/21 season, which remains his highest-ever feat during his illustrious career.
With 30 already bagged and still maybe three more games to play in the French Cup, 13 more in the league and a further potential to play in seven more Champions League matches, Mbappe now needs only 13 more goals across a potential 23 fixtures to hit a new record.
Given his stunning ratio, that is all but guaranteed, if he plays in so many games. What's more, this also further shows how he gets the game’s first goal more often than not. He has done so in his past three games in all competitions, and has also done so in nine other fixtures, putting him on almost a 50% ratio of his 30 goals being the first in the match.
To score a header
Most goals for Mbappe tend to come with his glorious right foot. However, he has still managed to get one headed goal this season, but the Frenchman has netted eight penalties so far too.
PSG to get and score a penalty is at 9/4 (3.25), and Mbappe will be on penalty duty once again. You can also get odds of 18/1 (19.0) for him to score just his second header in all competitions.
To score from outside the area
Although no doubt possessing a magical right foot and incredible finishing ability, being the clinical striker in the box he is doesn’t really allow Mbappe to tally up the goals from outside the penalty area.
On the other hand, he is currently averaging 4.9 shots per game in Ligue 1 and 3.7 per match in the Champions League with four of his 20 Ligue 1 goals coming from outside of the area this season.
You can now get odds of 10/1 (11.0) for Mbappe to score from outside the area, although he hasn't done so in Europe yet.
To score 2+ goals
With over a goal per game right now in Ligue 1, Mbappe currently averages 0.97 goals per 90 minutes across all competitions. This has meant PSG's all-time top scorer has netted a few braces already, as he scored twice against Lens on gameweek three in Ligue 1, bagged another two goals against Lyon and another two against Brest before getting a double against Metz and US Orleans in the past two months.
Mbappe also has a hat-trick against US Ravel in the French Cup 9-0 battering over them away from home, as he also scored a treble of goals in a 3-0 away win over Stade Reims.
Odds for 2+ goals for Mbappe sits 4/1 (5.0), while a hat-trick comes in at 16/1 (17.0). It is also important to remember that PSG's top marksman only has goals in singles in the Champions League by netting against Newcastle United and Borussia Dortmund from the spot, and against AC Milan with his right foot from open play.
