Sadly, Kylian Mbappe couldn't hit the target from the penalty spot. The Frenchman played his penalty over the cross-bar. Well, I must say that Messi showed a kind gesture by letting Mbappe take the penalty even though he was on a hat-trick.

Lionel Messi was right to let Kylian Mbappe take the penalty because Mbappe was the creator of all Messi's goals. Messi's first was created by Kylian Mbappe. Also, Lionel scored the second goal from the spot after Mbappe was fouled. Note that Mbappe specifically pointed to Messi to play the penalty kick.

Therefore, Lionel Messi did the right thing by returning the favor to Mbappe. This goes to show how Lionel Messi and Mbappe are building a good relationship on the field.
