Bellingham Breaks Champions League Record Set By Mbappe By Scoring In Consecutive Matches

Highlights:

  • The England international Jude Bellingham broke Mbappe’s Champions League record
  • Bellingham scored in 2 consecutive matches in the UEFA Champions League for Borussia Dortmund

The England international Jude Bellingham made it two straight European matches with a goal and in the process, he broke the record set by the PSG star Kylian Mbappe.

Bellingham surpassed a record held by Kylian Mbappe by scoring in Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League win over Besiktas on Wednesday night.

The teenager opened the scoring before providing an assist for Erling Haaland just before half-time as the Bundesliga outfit held on for a 2-1 victory.

The English international, with his goal, became the youngest-ever player to score in consecutive Champions League appearances.

Bellingham’s most recent Champions League appearance before Wednesday came in last season’s quarter-final second leg which the team played against Manchester City. In that match, the midfielder opened the scoring for Dortmund in the first half.

However, Man City made a comeback with two goals in an eventual 4-2 aggregate win.

As he scored against Besiktas in Dortmund’s 2021-22 Champions League opening game, Bellingham, at 18 years, 78 days, broke Mbappe’s record which he set in March 2017 with Monaco when he was 18 years, 85 days.

In addition, Bellingham has also become the youngest-ever Englishman to score an away goal in the Champions League. The record was previously held by Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold who was 19 years 10 days in the match against Maribor in October 2017.

As they have started their Champions League campaign on the right foot, Dortmund will now be seen back in action in the domestic league on Sunday against Union Berlin.

Another Bundesliga match with Borussia Monchengladbach will follow before Marco Rose’s side come back for their Champions League play against Sporting CP on the 28th of September.
