The Lionel Messi to Kylian Mbappe scoring combination has been lethal for Paris Saint-Germain this 2022-23 season.
Both players have found a level of chemistry that has allowed them to dominate the competition, at least in Ligue 1. WhoScored pointed out on Twitter a statistic that illustrates how lethal the Messi-to-Mbappe combination has been this season.
Messi to Mbappe is the best assist-to-goalscorer combination in Europe’s top 5 leagues this season, yielding 10 goals, the statistical website noted after the Argentine assisted on one of the two goals from the French star.

While the duo often connected in Ligue 1 competition, it cannot be said for the UEFA Champions League. In PSG’s Round of 16 matchup against Bayern Munich, the capital club failed to score a goal and was eliminated again early in the knockout stage.
As a result, PSG fans could see the final moments of this connection as Messi becomes a free agent in June and the French giants could move in a different direction as sporting advisor Luis Campos builds the project around Mbappe.
