Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi combined to blow away Marseille in a 5-1 victory, giving Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) a glimpse of what the future could hold without Neymar.
The Brazilian superstar has been linked with a move away from the club, and with the departure of Edinson Cavani, the French champions are in need of a new attacking force.
Fortunately, Mbappe and Messi showed that they could be the perfect combination to fill the void left by Neymar and Cavani.
Mbappe was the star of the show, scoring a hat-trick and providing two assists, while Messi was also on the scoresheet and provided the creative spark that PSG had been lacking.
The two superstars linked up well and played off each other brilliantly, with Mbappe’s pace and directness offering a different dynamic to Messi’s intricate passing and dribbling.
It was a performance that provided a glimpse into what PSG could look like without Neymar, and it certainly bodes well for the future.
The combination of Mbappe and Messi could be a devastating one, and it could be the blueprint for PSG’s success in the Champions League.
The two superstars have the potential to be the most feared attacking duo in Europe, and if they can continue to gel and develop an understanding, PSG could be a force to be reckoned with.
It was just a glimpse, but it was enough to show that Mbappe and Messi could be the perfect combination to lead PSG forward without Neymar.
