The saving double of Messi, the danger Mbappé, but also any service in the game of PSG: find the Tops and Flops of the editorial staff at the end of this meeting between PSG and Leipzig (3-2).

Messi in the Champions League, it's solid


This season, Lionel Messi only seems to want to hide in the Champions League.

After his 1st goal against Manchester City, the Argentinian signed a very saving double in this unspecified PSG.

Yet discreet in the game and not necessarily successful on all his passes, he woke up his team, in difficulty while Leipzig led 2-1.

Deceiving Gulacsi on a well-placed shot (67th), he then signed the gesture of the evening on a penalty converted thanks to a Panenka (74th).

Two actions that have justified its importance in this competition, with a total of 123 career achievements.

Mbappé, permanent danger The


only one to bring danger to the depths, Kylian Mbappé remains essential in this Parisian team.

Entry scorer on a well-placed shot, after being launched by Draxler, the French striker caused trouble on each of his accelerations.

Rather in legs, he gratified the public with a few classy gestures.

Passenger on Messi's 1st goal, he too could have signed the double without a missed penalty (90th + 4th).

Nkunku has shaken up his training club


Christopher Nkunku recalled the good memories of the Park.

The Leipzig player was a constant poison by his ability to place himself between the lines and to serve his partners as well as possible, as on the action of the German club's 1st goal.

Elusive, he hurt a struggling Parisian defense.

Flops

Despite the success, Paris did not reassure


This is what we call a trompe-l'œil success.

As often this season at PSG.

Because in the game, the Parisians have again displayed their shortcomings of the moment between non-existent collective game and too much dependence on individualities.

Without forgetting a not very reassuring defense.

Mauricio Pochettino still has a lot of work to do to make this team competitive.

Still defensive gaps in Paris


Despite its 36% possession, Leipzig has often brought danger into the opponent's area.

And for good reason.

Paris defended very badly on the opposing transitions.

The attackers' lack of withdrawal thus seriously challenged the Parisian defense, sometimes left to itself, as on the two goals conceded.

At times, the Kimpembe-Marquinhos hinge shook, when the lack of technical accuracy of midfielders Herrera and Gueye against the opposing pressing penalized PSG.
