Mbappé extends his lead at the top of the goalscorer rankings

At the end of Matchday 26 of Ligue 1, and after the delightful display against Montpellier, Paris Saint-Germain forwards Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé sit at the top of both individuals rankings.

After the completely crazy game on Matchday 26 of Ligue 1, where Paris Saint-Germain put on a goal fest as they beat Montpellier (2-6), it's time to look at the impact on the individual player rankings!

And with the club from the capital able to rejoice in an astonishing unbeaten run of 24 matches (over 4 months), it brings this intense period to a close in the best possible way. With another convincing victory to increase the team's lead at the top of the league (12 points ahead of their closest challenger, Brest). A job well done for our players, who can now join up with their respective national teams boasting a sense of accomplishment.

Indeed, it was the captain of the French national team, Kylian Mbappé, who once again distinguished himself on Sunday evening. After picking up the first assist of the match for Vitinha's opening goal, the provider then turned scorer. And not just in a small way, since the number 7 scored his third hat-trick of the season!

His 250th goal wearing the Red and Blue jersey, and already his 38th goal of the season across all competitions. In Ligue 1 alone, the French international scored his 22nd, 23rd, and 24th goals of the season against Montpellier.

This puts him well ahead of his closest rival Jonathan David, who, in phenomenal form since the beginning of the year, has still scored 9 less goals than him (15 goals). Olympique Lyonnais striker, Alexandre Lacazette, closely follows him (13 goals).

In terms of assists, Ousmane Dembélé still remains at the top of the league ranking with 7 assists, one more than Angel Gomez from Lille. It's worth noting that in this ranking, two other Parisians also feature, both picking up assists against Montpellier: Kylian Mbappé and Bradley Barcola. Our Red and Blue players share third place in the standings and boast no less than 5 assists in Ligue 1 this season.
