Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe displayed their chemistry in Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 victory against AC Ajaccio on Friday at the Estadio François-Coty.
Messi assisted in both Mbappe goals; meanwhile, Mbappe assisted in Messi’s lone goal. An ESPN pundit is swooning over the two players’ connection on the pitch. Frank Leboeuf labeled the performance by Messi “absolutely perfect.”
“The chemistry between them worked perfectly,” Leboeuf said on Friday’s edition of ESPN FC. “They try to look for each other. Two assists and one goal for Messi, one assist and two goals for Mbappe. Perfect couple, perfect evening for both of them.
“… But when you are served by one of the best players in the world, it becomes very easy and nice to be a striker at Paris Saint-Germain to score so many goals. So Mbappe is the top scorer of Ligue 1 tonight because of his two goals. He finds somebody who loves to serve him because of his runs and the intelligence when he plays.”
If PSG is going to lift the UEFA Champions League trophy at the end of the season, they’ll need their superstar players on the same page, which appears all three are on to start the 2022-23 season.
