The Argentine had an assist on the first goal, a through ball in to Mbappe who scored. With PSG leading 1-0, it was Mbappe’s turn to give the assist.
A low pass into the penalty area found the Argentine who scored from close range to double PSG’s lead. But Messi had one more assist.

Messi, Emi, Scaloni set to win the prestigious FIFA award tonight as Real Madrid will not send anyone to tonight award but Emilio Butragueno. It seems like the moaners madrid got offended that none of their players will win the award. Lol. Eat shit Madrid. Eat shit!
Messi and Mbappe enjoying the partnership. Wonderful to watch, The next step is to advance and beat Bayern
He could have easily score a hattrik today had his finishing been a tad better. Nevertheless, his two assist were very good. Especially the second one where he put a juicy ball on a platter for Mbappe’s volley!! With Neymar gone, Messi unselfishly willing to be the creative engine and with Mbappe’s pace their chemistry might just be a littile too much for Bayern in the second leg.
PSG still has a chance against Bayern if both Messi and Mbappe are in WC final mode. They are 2 of the very best players currently in the world.
