During the match between Nantes and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), superstar Lionel Messi praised Kylian Mbappe for his historic accomplishments. In the 92nd minute of the 4-2 victory, Mbappe scored to become the Parisian club’s all-time leading scorer.
He currently has 201 goals for the Ligue 1 team. The total surpasses the previous record holder, Edinson Cavani, by one. During the Uruguayan’s time in Paris, he scored 200 goals in 301 games. In contrast, Mbappe has now appeared in 247 Ligue 1 games. He is rewriting history, even though he is only 24.
Mbappe said (via GOAL) in response to the record:
“I play to record history. I’ve always said that I wanted to write history in my city, my country, and my country’s capital, France. I’m doing it, and it’s beautiful, but there’s still a long way to go. It’s a personal victory, but I also came for the collective victory.”
During the game against Nantes, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi scored goals. In the 12th minute of the match, Messi scored the first goal, and Mbappe scored in the final minute. In 29 games this season, Messi has now scored 18 goals and contributed 16 assists. In contrast, Mbappe has contributed seven assists and scored 30 goals in 30 games thus far this season.
Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe own formed a deathly attacking partnership for PSG in Neymar’s lack. When the Parisians beat Olympique de Marseille 3-0 last week, their superior comprehension was on full display. Messi assisted on two goals and scored one himself. Mbappe, in the meantime, scored support and sacked a help.
The superstars’ approach to the game works really well together. Fans will hope that they continue to work together like this for PSG as the second leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 matchups against Bayern Munich draws closer.
