Video: Lionel Messi Surprises RB Leipzig With a Vintage Panenka Penalty Goal

One can never know on what to expect from Lionel Messi on the pitch. And even at this stage in his career, the Paris Saint-Germain forward still can catch his opponents off guard.

After Kylian Mbappe won a penalty kick for PSG in the team’s UEFA Champions League group stage fixture against RB Leipzig, Messi stepped up to the plate to take the attempt. In a move that certainly surprised RB Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi, Messi scored one standout panenka penalty goal.
