PSG-Leipzig (3-2): Paris snatches victory thanks to Messi and Mbappé

PSG won with forceps against RB Leipzig (3-2) on Tuesday evening, during the third day of the Champions League. Paris went through all the emotions but can say thank you to Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé.

In a match where they were deprived of Neymar (injured), Angel Di Maria (last suspension match) and Mauro Icardi (family situation), the Parisians were scared but retain the lead of group A in front of Manchester City, wide winner of Bruges (5-1).

However, the Parisians opened the scoring early thanks to a marvelous goal from Kylian Mbappé (9th). What then to imagine the steamroller launched? But as since the start of the season, Paris has eased its footing and has completely restored the confidence of its opponent.

Messi’s panenka

And twice, Paris has been caught in default. First by André Silva (28th) for the equalizer, then in the second half by the French side Nordi Mukiele (57th) who cooled the Parc des Princes.

But fortunately, the pride of the stars (and especially the errors of the young German guard) was beneficial to the men of Mauricio Pochettino. On a recovery of the ball from Achraf Hakimi, Mbappé, launched in the area, offered Lionel Messi his second goal in the jersey of the capital, synonymous with equalization (67th). Then a few minutes later, on a new breakthrough, Simakan was guilty of a fault on Mbappé. The tricolor striker, good prince, then offered the ball to “La Pulga” who transformed the penalty with a soft panenka (74th).

If Mbappé missed a penalty in extra time, the essential is assured, despite the performance: first place in group A. Lucky for some? This is not the opinion of the tricolor genius. “All the matches are difficult, but we take the lead in the group. There have been good things and faced with such teams we also know that there are less well, said Mbappé. A lucky result? No. Luck does not exist in these kinds of matches. Leipzig are a good team. But we were settled in their camp, we combined well. There are periods in the game that are a little too weak. (On the first penalty left to Lionel Messi). It’s normal, he’s the best player in the world and I’ve always said it was a privilege to see him play with us. The first, he has to shoot it. He left me the second one and I missed it. “

And now, as the Parc des Princes reminded us, it’s time for the Classic against OM.
