As everyone knows, most people consider Mbappé and Haaland as the new generation of unparalleled talents after Ronaldo and Messi. However, it's not just about people's perceptions, being regarded as unparalleled talents also requires actual achievements to prove it. However, judging from their current performances, both players, especially in their club careers and particularly in the Champions League, have yet to produce convincing performances to prove themselves as the new kings.

Just recently, in the early hours of the morning, Paris Saint-Germain, where Mbappé plays, was ultimately eliminated with an aggregate score of 0-2. Mbappé made no contribution in either leg of the knockout rounds, leading to the team's elimination. With Paris Saint-Germain being eliminated, Mbappé still hasn't won a Champions League title in his professional career. For the current world number one, this is undoubtedly an embarrassing statistic.

In order to win the Champions League, Mbappé ultimately decided to leave Paris Saint-Germain and join Real Madrid, reasoning that Real Madrid, as a club with 14 Champions League titles, has the richest experience in winning the Champions League. However, Mbappé's lackluster performance in the Champions League requires him to prove himself more, especially after joining Real Madrid. According to data, he has only scored 1 goal in 7 Champions League semi-finals + finals in his career. In addition, the data for Haaland, who is considered alongside him as the new unparalleled talents, is also very poor in this regard.

Considering that their predecessors Messi and Ronaldo have repeatedly proven their strength in tough battles and scored crucial goals, undoubtedly, the two young talents still have a lot to do to catch up with their predecessors. Especially for Mbappé after joining Real Madrid, he will face the most severe test from the world's best, as almost all of his Real Madrid teammates are Champions League winners, and some even have multiple Champions League trophies. In such an environment, Mbappé's performance will be subjected to even stricter scrutiny and judgment. Therefore, if he wants to become the new king of Real Madrid, he needs to show more outstanding performances to prove himself.

Mbappé needs to prove himself at Real Madrid, especially in crucial moments of the Champions League. Only by demonstrating his strength can he become the new king.

Mbappé doesn't need to prove himself. At 19, he became a champion. As the absolute core of the French World Cup team and Golden Shoe, his presence is already invincible!

Should be no problem, they're both so strong! Of course, without persevering and continuing to work hard, it's simply not possible.

In recent years, the most talked-about figures in football are undoubtedly Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. It's difficult to say who is stronger between the two, and many fans always enjoy comparing them to determine who is the world number one. However, as both of their careers are entering their twilight, people now cherish and enjoy the last glory moments of "Mero", the classic rivalry between the two legendary players.

In order to create public opinion, the media will compare the two players every 10 or 20 years, known as the "duopoly". Now we are entering the era of Mbappé and Haaland, but I feel that this duopoly will soon be broken. Mbappé's technical performance is undoubtedly top-notch, unquestionably the best in the world at present. However, Haaland's performance cannot be compared to the past duopoly. In the early days, there were legends like van Basten and Matthäus, both of whom were very famous players in the world of football. Van Basten was three years younger than Matthäus. Although they debuted at different times, they were both legends and won many championships. Van Basten helped the Netherlands win the European Championship, while Matthäus helped Germany win the World Cup and the European Championship. They were also known as the "duopoly" at that time.

Cruyff and Beckenbauer were also a golden duo. Cruyff was an attacking weapon in that era, and his career was also very brilliant. Beckenbauer was known as the "Emperor of Football" and also won many championships.

On the other hand, Mbappé and Haaland still lack many honors in major international competitions. Mbappé won the 2018 World Cup, but does not have a Champions League title. Haaland currently has only one Champions League title. Moreover, neither of them has won the Ballon d'Or. So, the road ahead is still long, and whether there will be another pair of geniuses to take the duopoly's place remains to be seen.

Mbappé's performance in the World Cup is unbelievably outstanding. In the 2018 World Cup, when he was just 20 years old, he scored twice in the Round of 16 to help the team eliminate Argentina. He also scored a goal in the final to help the team win the World Cup. Then, in the 2022 World Cup, Mbappé scored 8 goals in the tournament, bringing his total World Cup goals to 12. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Mbappé is likely to become the all-time leading scorer in World Cup history. In the final of the 2022 World Cup, Mbappé scored a hat-trick, demonstrating remarkable strength. If FIFA hadn't wanted to crown Messi as the king, Mbappé could have defended the World Cup title and been crowned the king. However, Mbappé's performance at the club level is somewhat lacking. Currently, his only club honor is a league title. In the Champions League, either he scores but the team loses, or he doesn't score and the team still loses. In theory, Paris Saint-Germain's squad is not inferior to the French national team's, so perhaps it's because the club's players are more focused on defense. As a key player, Mbappé is the first player opponents target defensively. Let's see if Mbappé can undergo a transformation after joining Real Madrid next season and truly claim the position of the world's number one player.

As for Haaland, he has been dominating weaker opponents in the past two seasons. However, he tends to disappear in strong matchups. Haaland's individual ability is slightly inferior to Mbappé's, and he relies more on his team to score. Despite Manchester City's strength, with De Bruyne's exceptional delivery ability, they still can't help Haaland score in key matches. Perhaps Manchester City's tactical arrangement uses Haaland as bait, with other players scoring instead.
