Who is Better ?

Kylian Mbappe played matches more than Erling Haaland. He scored more and played a season early. And then his market value is rank 1 in the world, and then more Trophies and more prizes. So everyone think Mbappe is better than Haaland.

This conculsion is wrong. In the France League, PSG is the most powerful team and got the best players of the world like Messi, Neymar, Ramos, etc... Everyone is world class and they can beat any team in their league. So thay can control the match and they can scored goals.

On the otherhand, Haaland played for Borussia Dortmund last year. Dortmund is also a strong and good team. It is not enough to compare PSG. So you can say a goal for Haaland is not easy like a goal for Mbappé. But now, Haaland is in Man City and he scored many goal for the team and Premier League and Champions League. ManCity's Halland is better than Dortmund's Haaland because all ManCity players are world class level and everyone create chance for Haaland in every minutes every seconds.

So, Haaland is better ?

No, this one is also totally wrong.

So let check the attacker status.
2022/2023 Season

Mbappé : 6 matches, 506 minutes played, 7 Goals, 0 Assist, 6.05 (shots per 90 minutes), 6.48 (Expected Goal), 1.15 (Expected Goal per 90 minutes)

Haaland : 7 matches, 588 minutes played, 11 Goals, 1 Assist, 4.13 (shots per 90 minutes), 8.35 (Expected Goal), 1.28 (Expected Goal per 90 minutes)

So can you see statics for this season? Yeah Haaland is better by this statics. But you can not Haaland is better than Mbappé.

In the history, Mbappé lead in all results but in this season Haaland lead back.

Haaland improved more and more. Now we cannot say who is better. But at the end of this season. We will see who is better. So let's meet again.
