Minutes 90+2, Kasper Schmeichel came out and blocked Achraf Hakimi in the face-to-face phase. Lionel Messi rushed in but did not finish but passed Kylian Mbappe in a favorable position.
The striker born in 1998 turned the ball into a defender but In front of the empty goal, he shot over the bar again.
“Missed phase of the year,” mocked the first fan. “Mbappe squanders the opportunity but the one who gets criticized is Messi,” one fan commented. “Mbappe should focus more on professionalism, instead of openly opposing the club for things off the pitch,” the second person criticized the French national striker.
Mbappe had a lackluster day in front of the Nice defense. He failed to get a shot during his 90 minutes on the pitch. When given the opportunity by Messi, the 2018 World Cup champion missed again.
Mbappe’s ungainly handling did not affect the result of the match because before that, PSG had led 2 goals thanks to Messi and Ramos. Messi scored the opening goal, then assisted the former Real Madrid captain to head, doubling the lead.
Messi’s goal, Ramos helped PSG end a two-match losing streak, and maintained a 6-point gap with Lens in the Ligue 1 championship race.
