Lionel Messi’s pass to Kylian Mbappe in the final minute of the match was a one-touch slot that he played at the perfect moment to let his teammate down. PSG secured a 2-1 victory against Brest thanks to a goal scored by a French striker who, during the head-to-head match, conned the Brest goalie and scored with the ball into an empty net.
Leo’s whole playing career includes time spent with Barcelona and PSG, and this particular assist was the 300th of his career. No player in the history of the game has ever been able to complete the achievement.
Since making his first appearance for Barcelona in 2004, El Pulga has racked up a total of 701 goals and 300 assists for the club’s offense. In addition, Messi has produced 13 goals and 13 assists over his 22 games in Ligue 1 this season.
After Paris Saint-elimination Germain’s from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich in the round of 16, the former star of Barcelona provided a prompt response. In the most prestigious stadium in all of Europe, Leo went winless for the eighth season in a row, while the host team at Parc des Princes was eliminated in the round of 16 for the fifth time in the last seven years.
Following the victory, Thomas Muller made the following assertion: “When we play against Messi, we almost always come out on top at every level. When Cristiano Ronaldo was playing for Real Madrid, we had a lot of trouble defending against him in club competition. But despite this, I have a lot of admiration for Messi’s performance in the World Cup.”
The possibility exists that Lionel Messi would choose not to renew his contract with Paris Saint-Germain if his team is eliminated in the group stage of this competition. Both sides’ current contracts expire next summer.
Getting back to PSG, their victory over Brest allowed them to keep their lead atop the Ligue 1 standings at 66 points and allowed them to remain in first place. They have an 11-point lead over Marseille, who is now in second place. This is the one and only significant objective that the Paris capital team has left for the remainder of the season.
