"Following" Messi-Mbappe brought PSG to earn all 3 points

In a recent interview, Mbappe frankly said that he is willing to reduce the individual part of the game for Messi, making more sacrifices for the team. In the confrontation with RB Leipzig in the Champions League group stage, the French star proved that it was not just words.

In the first minutes, Mbappe opened the scoring with a surprising corner kick that put the home team ahead. But the indiscreet defense caused PSG to be led back by the opponent 2-1. In difficult circumstances, Mbappe joined Messi to create a comeback.

In the 67th minute, right after the teammate stole the ball in the foot of the RB Leipzig player, the Messi-Mbappe pair immediately accelerated in two different directions, entering the penalty area. On the right wing, Mbappe calmly watched, waited for the opponent's defender to come in and then suddenly released the ball back to Messi in the middle. Messi as usual occupied a favorable position, beating goalkeeper Gulacsi after two attempts to level the gap.

Directly assisting is not enough, Mbappe also indirectly helped the man get one more goal. In the 74th minute, the French striker forced the opponent to commit a foul in the penalty area and brought home a penalty. On the 11m mark, Messi beat the goalkeeper with a sensational panenka.

The bright day of the Messi-Mbappe duo could have been more perfect if Mbappe successfully made the penalty in injury time. As revealed by the 22-year-old striker, it was Messi who gave up the opportunity to score a hat-trick to give it to him.

However, 3 goals are still enough for PSG to win 3-2 in the end and maintain the top spot. Although there are certain problems in the gameplay, the fact that Messi and Mbappe are increasingly getting along is great news for the Park of the Princes team.

Liverpool defeated Atletico Madrid after a thrilling chase

Salah was the opener and also scored the 3-2 victory for Liverpool in the match at Wanda Metropolitano. However, it is Griezmann who makes the match extremely dramatic.

After 13 minutes of rolling, Liverpool led by 2 goals. Those dream-like beginnings would help the Red Brigade win 3 points without spending too much effort, but Atletico rose up strongly.

In the 20th minute, Griezmann appeared at the right time to cushion the ball close to the wall after a pass from Koke, shortening the gap to 1 goal. Only 15 minutes later, the French striker coordinated with Joao Felix to bring home the second goal for the home team.

With only 2 players, Atletico Madrid penetrated the opponent's defence. Joao Felix dribbled from the left and sent the ball to Griezmaan's feet. The French striker handled delicately to get rid of the attached players before hitting the corner to make goalkeeper Alisson give up.

Unfortunately for Atletico, on a day of being praised by the whole audience, Griezmann made his own merit. In the situation of fighting for the ball, the 30-year-old striker kicked his foot straight into Firmino's face. A red card was drawn by the referee, so that the home team had to play most of the second half in a short position.
