BecoDasCavernas

Where's Neymar?


zaaaac93

Suspended for too many yellow cards


polymathsrmonomaths

When you say it like that it sounds so funny. Makes it seem like he just goes around Casemiro-ing people left and right every day.


hits_blunt_twice

Well, he goes around Casemiro-ing people left and right but he’s not punctual at it.


HIGUAINS_DICKSUCKER

Neymar gets a lot of cards, he has a very provocative style and often gets mad when he is fouled


deathramps-

Also if they're losing he's very likely to get one


bluwuffel

It gets the people goin!


4thmovementofbrahms4

Bruh don't use casemiro as a verb lmao


Homerwithnohumour

Gone are the days when PSG used to Kroos through the league


courtesyflusher

Especially when they choke like a seagull with a Nacho


hornpub1818

Casemiro doesn't get yellows though.

Ok-Finance-7612

Jesus Donnarumma is shocking under pressure


21Maestro8

It was definitely his biggest weakness in Milan but some of the mistakes he's made this season are on a different level


StillaDingo

Yeah, it's incredible. That really hasn't improved much over the years


yooooouuuuuuuuu

What the hell is Donnarumma doing though


Due-Ad-1861

His best


NinjaButNotReally

i hope not


NCSTATEthrowawayy

Considering how delusional he’s been lately, he’s gonna say he did that on purpose


21Maestro8

I'm so glad we have Maignan now. The difference in technical and sweeping ability is just night and day


zadharm

I'm not. The trademark Donnaruma head scratcher could be relied upon to cost you lot at least 4 points a season. We'd have our second star wrapped up instead of hoping you slip. Shame he cant free transfer out of the NT though


solardeveloper

He was a major factor in Italy winning the Euros


zadharm

And a contributing factor to failing to qualify for the world cup(though by no means the only), and *that* is the problem with Gigi. He can be absolutely top-shelf, best in the world category one day, and a complete dunce the next Not the type of player you want to rely upon between the sticks


[deleted]

He is a 22 yo goalkeeper lol usually they don't even play that much at that age. Far from being at his prime.


cooldude123567

Lol, you should blame Jorginho for missing all those pens.


LarryPeru

He cost them the tie against Madrid


dakinekine

That header lmao 🤣


Josiahf8

Mbappe's passing is getting better and better. I don't like where this is going...


RNdadag

Does he even have a weakness nowadays


itwastimeforarefresh

Pressing. And that's it. Everything else is strong. Fuck.


KryptonianCode

Heading and Freekicks. But yes, this season of Mbappe is the best I've ever seen of him, even if he has less G/A. His close control, dribbling, passing, vision have taken a dramatic upswing.


Mrmoi356

Elite mentality too.


KryptonianCode

This for sure. He's no longer a humble kid. He massively stepped up for PSG at clutch moments this season as a leader.


Blackheart_75

> He's no longer a humble kid. He's now a humble man.


KryptonianCode

Lol Mbappe is ridiculously level headed as aperson but he does have a bit of an ego too. Not saying it’s a bad thing either.


WilfriedBonyFanAcc

He’s literally a born superstar and his move to Madrid will possibly start his rise to becoming the greatest, although nowadays it will be very very difficult


KryptonianCode

Indeed. Though I wish he’d try the Prem with Haaland before Spain. He’s recovered in the best way from the Euros.


LDKRZ

Who wouldn’t have an ego? Second most expensive player ever at 18, World Cup wins, this level of ability and touted to join the biggest football side ever. You’d be hard pressed to find many athletes at his age and level who are without a trace of an ego


L34hhhh

Pressing, heading and freekicks


lssie_hyoudou

Heading


efarfan

1st touch when there is no space to run into


ConspicuousPineapple

Unless he can flick it to somebody immediately, then it's top tier again.


[deleted]

Messi and Mbappe switched places this game


Albiceleste_D10S

There have been 2-3 great Messi passes over the top to Mbappe too. The Montpellier keeper has just saved well from Mbappe so far today


arvindanar7

He made a brilliant pass few minutes ago too , shame mbappe couldn't finish it.


amzr23

His finishing has been dreadful but his creativity hasn’t dipped at all this season. So Goated


t_mac1

Messi has had some great passes this match too, but he always does every match. He's just scoring tonight.


Magnu448

Mbappe has had a couple beautiful assists delivered in with the outside of his boot


Albiceleste_D10S

Mbappe gonna break the assist record at this rate too, LOL Great play Messi and Mbappe to make up for another almost howler from Donnarumma


Harsh____07

What's the record?


Albiceleste_D10S

I think Di Maria hold the Ligue 1 record with 18 assists


LionelAMessi

Only one away from tying it up now.


questtozenith

Donnarumma has 10 howlers in a game I believe


twomanyfaces10

The assist was sumptuous


fastfowards

pretty much described PSG's season. Donnarumma being shit with two moments of magic from their forwards


Lemurians

> Donnarumma being shit with two moments of magic from their forwards Big mistake by PSG relying on Italian performance after the Euros


Svettpungkula

Not like he was on their radar before the Euros


asapmama

god I'm so jealous of France mbappe is so so so so special


courtesyflusher

Please bring him to Madrid u/asapmama

Rainbow numbers this game

PERIODT

Ootl messi is gay??


Verethragna97

Prob talking about the rainbow colors on the uniforms.


Codyyh

i feel like they should play more mbappe in the wing and messi as CF. but i guess thats too late now.


arvindanar7

My man is coming for that Golden boot That assist from 🐢 though


amzr23

🐢 x 🐐 is nice when it works


CheckElegant1774

mboop gud


KarpuzMan

why u violate bro like that after that assist 😭

Messi late Balon d'Or charge 😤

That's enough for the 8th Ballon D'or in my books

Just give him 3 at once at this rate

HEAT_IS_DIE

Is there really not a word for it in English? Such a basic technique.


Golgantes

In German it’s **Außenristpass**. I think it rolls off the tongue nicely enough to be used in English, too.


HEAT_IS_DIE

Ulkosyrjä in Finnish, also easy.

LampseederBroDude51

Messi cooking today


Migostien

Someone said Messi is going to score 21 goals in the final 2 games


NotNok

late Ballon D’or charge 😎


Used_Improvement9039

what a bloody pass


fastafricanboy69

Notice how he's playing further up now, not constantly dropping back to the defense to create


hellothereiamhuman

his finishing hasn’t been great this season but he also hasn’t really found himself in positions to finish, it’s no surprise he’s further up when the creative load is taken off a little


fastafricanboy69

Yeah I agree


amzr23

Exactly. His xG is only about 10 if I’m correct. He’s underperformed badly no denying it, but he’s also just not in the box either


t_mac1

he has hit the bar like 13-14 times this season. A lot of bad luck goes into his poor finishing as well.


TheyStoleTwoFigo

Yeah, and in context that they are mostly from outside the box, that's bad luck in terms of Messi, for anyone else that's a "worthy try," and if it had gone it it would be a wonder goal, for Messi it'd be another Tuesday.


Tr0nCatKTA

Its Saturday though


hellothereiamhuman

idk, if you’ve hit the woodwork that many times then you are just missing, it’s not really bad luck at that point


InPatRileyWeTrust

Hitting the post constantly is just bad finishing though.


Mortka

Yeah hahah


Salvador1010

Was just telling someone this. I think the trio should have been with messi as false 9. He hasnt been getting service he has to drop so far deep and create usually


SAFFATLOL

I thought this right when they signed him, but for whatever reason we never saw it happen


rishabh7102

This


arvindanar7

Absolutely, i said it in one of my previous comments, he looks like he playing for the goals today.


DemPele-

hence why he got two goals. don’t listen to people calling him “finished” or that he’s had a bad season. Messi will always be Messi and performs in every single game he plays whether or not he gets assists or scores


simomii

lol he 100% had a bad season, stop this shit


largemanrob

25 goals and assists in 35 games is pretty good


DemPele-

by his standards of course. but he will never not be a good player that’s all i’m saying


YourPupilsDilated

>Messi will always be Messi and performs in every single game he plays whether or not he gets assists or scores This is why it is difficult to take some Barcelona fans seriously sometimes.


DemPele-

he had plenty of games at Barca where he didn’t score or assist yet helped the team out in other ways. he is more or less the same at PSG essentially playing as a midfielder. also if you think my opinion is biased you should see some other barca fans takes on football lmao


Bousine

Barcelona fans love Messi. What's wrong with that? Of course, they are going to be biased.


THY96

I think I see Messi


skullmack

Bruh I swear this man scores when I can’t watch wth man


Special-Sir9079

Same

Please don't watch

Messi I'm beggin you just consider us, we would give you a little tractor to ride to the match on and I'd hold your water bottle, please just consider Ipswich


Oumashu345

Down bad.


SnailShells

Donnarumma operates on a cognitive level that we cannot begin to comprehend.


PM_ME_Y0UR_BOOBZ

Quaresma would be proud


Blue_Magics

He’s awoken.


srjnp

wow messi actually made a run into the box for once in psg instead of staying on the edge


FootballFTW

Is it too late for stat padding?


amzr23

1 game left for his golden boot challenge


Sewer_Troll

Man is casually scoring 50% of his season total league tally in under 20 minutes and people still doubt him.


jr9810

wtf was Donnarumma doing at the start of that?


Sirge

Gay Messi best messi


Elon20

What's the context of this gay messi thing? Is it because of his deal with saudi arab?


RJRamyen

PSG players had rainbow numbers on their shirts today


goyooo2201

I think it's because of the rainbow colors on the kit


Radiksas

what did he smoke in saudi


GodOfRice7

The finest shisha


greytiehomie

danskizaman

Everyone in a while Mbappe does something to remind you just how clear he is of everyone in his age bracket , this assist was one of those moments


ramithrower

A wild Messi has suddenly arose from his slumber


halal_developer

he is jogging like a 50 year old lmaoo insane ball control though


lkjhgfdhgfd

Mbappe is such a complete player just amazing :D best player itw in my opinion


LegAdministrative238

Him or Benzema for sure


_DrShrimpPuertoRico_

Has to be Benz this year. Just super clutch and Madrid's attack looks lost when he's not playing, from what I have seen.

Mboopi already Learning from Modric


guardioLEO

Leo on a hattrick! Paris will be awarded a penalty later in the game only for Leo to give it to Mbappe. Can’t wait!


TheUneducatedCule

Close.


Aug415

It’s not Messi’s to give


jabroni_rl

donnaruma cannot possibly have been making mistakes that bad at milan


cPa3k

He made some here and there, not this much tho. Corners and distribution were his biggest weakness with us imo


G-Peres

This guy just cannot stop scoring


QualityFrog

He literally never misses


CactusMac11

Gluroo

Donnarumma though lmao

Watch the last 5 seconds


reyxe

I don't watch PSG often but is Donnarumma this fucking terrible that often? wtf


XuloMalacatones

lmao Donarumma thought he saw Benzema


almaz_peter

Messi getting service!!!? Strange


Santa_Klaus_101

That Saudi deal really unlocked him didn't it.


syed_abubaker15

Mama...he's back


RyoAsuka1

Messi and Mbappe play so much better when neymar is not there. maybe 3 big players in the front doesn't work too well for PSG


Aug415

They play just the same when Neymar is there. The big difference this game is that Montpellier plays a high line, whereas most other Ligue 1 opponents sit back with 5-6 defenders and play for a draw.


d7oom175

Classic Messi goal


LewsTherin177

What getting an extra hundred mil from the Saudis does to an mf.


Superb-Confidence-44

Haha dude starts when the season is over.


WeslyAl

29 goals to go to reach lewa,you can do it messi


FeeApprehensive4431

I kinda want Mbappe to stay one more year to see what they can do together now that their more used to each other… but at same time fuck PSG and their slave owning asses

Man is on a mission.
