In football, players can be compared to each other, but when the comparison is founded on the basis of a team's defeat, then it can be tagged "unfair".

Ever since Paris Saint Germain produced a stunning comeback against Barcelona in their Champions League round of 16 first leg clash at Camp Nou, the football world has been filled with awe for hero of that night, Kylian Mbappe.

The France forward has even been compared to Lionel Messi who was man-marked out of the game.

Mbappe who turns 23 by December already has some pretty amazing stats which can rival most player's, but not Messi's.

With over 200 appearances for PSG, Mbappe has scored over 100 goals, won Ligue I player of the year award and has been named twice in FIFA FIFPro World XI coupled with UEFA Team Of The Year (1X).

Mbappe also has a FIFA World Cup trophy to his name.

However, at the age of 23, Lionel Andrés Messi was already ruling the world of football with 3 Ballon d'Or, FIFA Club World Cup Golden Ball, FIFA World Player Of The Year awards.

What's more? Messi was also named UEFA Club Footballer Of The Year, UEFA Club Forward Of The Year, La Liga Best Player (2X), La Liga Best Forward (2X), plus a worthy inclusion in FIFA FIFPro World XI (4X) and UEFA Team Of The Year (3X).

Now it's obvious there's a big difference from Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi's stats, so why the comparison?

Barcelona's skipper really deserves some respect from critics.
