With Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo no longer in European football, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland are poised to compete for the title of the world’s best player for years to come.

Comparing their records in the Champions League, while Messi and Ronaldo lead as the competition’s all-time top goalscorers, Mbappe and Haaland have made impressive starts and could potentially surpass their tallies in the future.

Mbappe has yet to win the Champions League, reaching the final in 2020 with PSG but suffering a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich.

Haaland, two years younger, has made fewer Champions League appearances than Mbappe but is quickly catching up in goal tally.

He made a fast start with Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund before winning the trophy in his debut season with Manchester City.

In terms of statistics:

Mbappe:

  • Games: 67
  • Starts: 59
  • Sub appearances: 8
  • Goals: 44
  • Assists: 26
  • Penalties scored: 6
  • Minutes per goal: 120.8
  • Minutes per non-penalty goal: 139.8
  • Minutes per goal or assist: 78.1

Haaland:

  • Games: 35
  • Starts: 32
  • Sub appearances: 3
  • Goals: 40
  • Assists: 5
  • Penalties scored: 6
  • Minutes per goal: 68.3
  • Minutes per non-penalty goal: 80.3
  • Minutes per goal or assist: 60.6

In summary, Mbappe has been more involved in the Champions League with more starts and assists, but Haaland has a higher goal-scoring rate, particularly in non-penalty goals. Both players have made significant impacts in the competition and are poised to continue their impressive performances in the future.

'He's had 48 hours' - Arsenal boss shares update on Bukayo Saka after furious penalty demand

Bukayo Saka expressed frustration at not being awarded a penalty after a clash with Manuel Neuer during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.

Saka faced criticism for his reaction, but given the high emotions of the game, such reactions were not uncommon.

Real Madrid 3-3 Man City: Valverde caps off evening of stunning goals in Champions League thriller

Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, setting up an intriguing second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

City took an early lead through Bernardo Silva’s cleverly taken free-kick, but Madrid equalized twice with deflected strikes from Eduardo Camavinga and Rodrygo, which took slight touches off Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji respectively.

Phil Foden restored City’s lead with a superb strike from outside the box, before Josko Gvardiol scored his first goal for the club with a fine right-footed shot to make it 3-2.

However, Madrid fought back once again, with Federico Valverde’s stunning volley ensuring the tie ended level.

The result leaves the quarter-final finely balanced ahead of the second leg, with City looking to replicate their 4-0 victory over Madrid in last season’s semi-finals at the Etihad Stadium.

There was a late injury concern for City as Foden hobbled off following a late tackle on his ankle, but the extent of the injury is yet to be determined.
