It’s just nine days since the superstar became the first player in the club’s history to score five goals in a single game.

But this was the start of what proved to be a night to forget for Mbappe.

His first penalty was saved by Montpellier stopper Benjamin Lecomte, who impressively leapt across to keep the ball out.

But the keeper came off his line, which meant the spot kick was retaken.

Mbappe once again stepped up and despite going the other way, Lecomte performed further heroics to push the ball onto the post.

The rebound did fall straight to the 24-year-old’s feet, but he somehow failed to convert from six-yards.

Instead, he fired miles over the bar in what was his THIRD big chance to score in a matter of minutes.

Earlier this season, Mbappe and Neymar were involved in a spat over penalties.

On that occasion, Mbappe also missed from 12-yards with the Brazilian taking a second spot kick that PSG won later in the game.

Mbappe confronted his team-mate as he is the club’s designated penalty taker, but Neymar went ahead and scored.

That was the Frenchman’s last miss though, with the forward scoring his previous three before tonight.

He also famously scored THREE penalties in France’s World Cup final defeat to Argentina – two during the game and one in the shootout.

But he couldn’t find the net tonight and his evening went from bad to worse on the 20-minute mark when he was forced off with an injury.

Fortunately for the French champs, manager Christophe Galtier said the injury “does not seem very serious” with PSG hosting Bayern Munich in the Champions League in 13 days’ time.
