Kylian Mbappe was given the UEFA Man of The Match award after PSG won Leipzig 3-2. In my opinion, Lionel Messi deserved the Man of the Match award ahead of Kylian Mbappe, as the Argentine star stepped up when the team needed him most, as they trailed Leipzig 2-1, before he scored from close range and scored the penalty that gave PSG the win, while Mbappe missed the second penalty of the match.

The Paris-based team opened the scoring in the first half before Leipzig hit back and led as Andre Silva scored his first UCL goal since 2016 and Nordi Mukiele also scored, before Lionel Messi scored twice to give PSG the win.

With the two goals, Messi deserves the Man of The Match Award, or is the standard set so high for him because he is Messi? Make your opinions heard in the comments section below.
