Paris Saint-Germain struggled to beat RB Leipzig by 3-2 at home. The game was an open contest, with Leipzig pressing Paris Saint-Germain. Paris Saint-Germain won the game, but their defensive issues are still a concern.

On the other hand, note that Mbappe scored PSG's first goal of the game in the first half. In the second half, Lionel Messi got two goals that sealed victory for Paris Saint-Germain. However, in stoppage time, Lionel Messi had the chance to complete his first PSG hat-trick after Mbappe was fouled in the penalty box. Surprisingly, Lionel Messi let Mbappe take the penalty.

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.
