While Lionel Messy scored twice, Kylian Mbappe also played an equally starring role in the Champions League held on Tuesday. Despite the fact that Kylian Mbappe missed a penalty when Paris Saint-Germain later came from behind. And eventually beat RB-Leipzig by a 3-2 in the league. Their performance was definitely something out of the usual. Both, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe lead PSG to victory.
Mbappe handed over the lead to PSG at the very Parc des Princes. But the French capital certainly did not crumble earlier in the competition when Leipzig’s side was beaten by a 6-3 at the Manchester City.
It was the goals from the pioneer soccer players, Nordi Mukiele and Andre Silva that had the team in front. It almost looked as if PSG would have to pay the price at the point for nothing but an occasionally disjointed display.
Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe were the main rescuers in this Champions League game. It was the France star who has set up the Argentinian for the equalizer. Then, he coolly chipped into a 74th-penalty. The penalty was awarded to Mbappe for a foul.
Mbappe was seen missing from the injury time spot by Mauricio Pochettino’s team as well. In the halfway stage only the team has reached the top of Group A. They are now a point above the City. Earlier the City had won a 5-1 at the Club Brugge.
PSG had beaten Leipzig in the 2020 semi-finals. They were at the bottom without a single point in that game. PSG was able to achieve such a great win without Neymar. Neymar was side-lined in that particular game due to an adductor muscle injury at the time.
Julian Draxler joined Messi and Mbappe during the attack in Paris. They were able to make a rare start without Angel di Maria and Mauro Icardi. Both the missing players had unique reasons for their absence. While Angel di Maria was absent because he was suspended, Mauro Icardi was missing due to some concerning family reasons. Reports say that Mauro Icardi has been facing some relationship issues with his partner Wanda Nara. The Instagram celebrity face is also Mauro Icardi’s agent in the professional world.
The former PSG player, Ronaldinho also added to the glamor and glitz of Parc Des Princes. He was also Messi’s later teammate in Barcelona. Just before performing the famous lap of honor during their warm-up, Messi was embraced by the Brazilian player as well.
One of the best soccer players in the world, Ronaldinho was seen extremely impressed by Mbappe’s moves when he gave the lead to PSG in just nine minutes. However, PSG was definitely seen struggling. It still does not look as if PSG has a fully rounded team that is all-powerful enough to dominate Europe. What has had the team lucky is their few superstar players. They have never left a chance to make their team shine amidst the most unprecedented circumstances and also whenever it has really mattered.
