Lionel Messi probably has only one job now. Scoring with teammates. Sometimes Kylian Mbappé, sometimes Neymar, the Argentinian forward of PSG does not have the slightest temerity to make a goal. Such is his role at PSG now.
Kylian Mbappe scored two goals in PSG’s 3-0 win over Nantes today. Messi made both goals. Nuno Mendes scored PSG’s other goal.
PSG’s Champions League campaign this season will begin with a match against Juventus on September 7. Keeping that match in mind, PSG coach Christophe Galtier made some changes in the XI today. Neymar, who is in great form, was left on the bench to form the XI, and Pablo Sarabia joined Mbappe-Messi in attack.
Neymar also came on later, as a substitute for Mbappe in the 63rd minute. By then the fate of the match was almost decided.
In the 18th minute, Mbappe scored the first goal from a great pass by Messi. In the 24th minute, the left ball Fabio showed a red card and the team became 10 people. The match then becomes difficult for them. Even then, Nante did not score again before the break.
PSG made the gap 2-0 in 54 minutes. Messi’s pass again, Mbappe’s goal. This season Mbappe played 5 matches in the league for PSG and scored 7 goals. His teammate Neymar also scored 7 goals in 6 matches. These two are also the top scorers in League One so far.
