The problem of playing Mbappe, Messi and Neymar together.

PSG Champions League group stage opener this season did not go as planned. With their spectacular MNM trident of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe starting together for the first time, expectations were high. However, they could only manage a 1-1 draw with Club Brugge, leaving a lot to be desired. Neither of the three forwards scored either, with Ander Herrera the unlikely source of their only goal.

Since then, MNMs have come under criticism. Neymar and Messi did not help, If you want to play with these three forwards up front, PSG have to have midfielders who know how to handle the ball, with a certain idea of ​​football. You can't expect them to be Xavi Hernandez or Andres Iniesta, but they need something else. Messi needs the ball and he needs to be able to dominate the game. He's not going to help create space athletically. Despite a dream trio with Neymar and Mbappe, PSG attacking the exit left a lot to be desired. That will hold them back at some point. They will have to solve it. When they lose the ball, Neymar, Messi and Mbappe have to take a taxi back.
