Rashford Beats Mbappe’s Champions League Record In RB Leipzig’s Win

Marcus Rashford was introduced with the scoreline at 1-0 against RB Leipzig after Mason Greenwood's first-half strike had given the hosts the lead in Champions League on Wednesday evening.

The Manchester United forward was introduced on minute 63 and bagged his first goal exactly 11 minutes later.

Four minutes on and the Manchester United man had the ball in the back of the net again.

Rashford, who has been making headlines off the pitch thanks to his terrific child food poverty petition, could have had his hat-trick even quicker.

The Red Devils won a penalty in the 87th minute but Rashford generously let team-mate Anthony Martial take it. It was the Frenchman's first goal of the season.

But the 22-year-old still got his hat-trick with Martial repaying the favour to set him up in the dying minutes.

Rashford managed to get his hat-trick in 27 minutes, a record from the bench in the Champions League.
