Although the match ended in a defeat for Messi’s team against Clermont but apart from that, the two stars of PSG, Messi and Kylian Mbappe attracted the headlines of the social media for a video after the match.

In the video, the French international and FIFA World Cup 2022 final’s star sensation, Kylian Mbappe can be seen introducing Messi in a unique style.

“Lionel Messi, 7 Ballon d’Or, he’s there, he’s there,” said Mbappe in the video recorded by himself while pointing towards the World Champion Argentina skipper.

Here’s the video:

This video started making rounds on social media as soon as it was shared on the micro-blogging site Twitter by an official account for Argentina’s national football side. Subsequently, the fans also rushed to the reply section of the video tweet to come up with some amazing reactions and responses for both Messi and Mbappe. Fans also lavished praise on the bond two amazing generational talents share with each other.

Here’s how fans reacted:

Talking about the action in Messi’s last game with PSG against Clermont Foot, he couldn’t live up to the expectations and failed to score a goal. Eventually, PSG lost the match by a margin of 2-3. It was Sergio Ramos who opened the score sheet in PSG’s favour and scored the first goal of the match only in the 16th minute. Just five minutes after the goal scored by Ramos, Kylian Mbappe brilliantly converted a penalty into the goal and helped PSG to take 2-0 in the early minutes of the game.

But something else was yet to happen in the match and Johan Gastien came up with the first goal for Clermont in the 24th minute of the match to reduce PSG’s lead to 2-1. Furthermore, Mehdi Zeffane scored the second goal for his side in the injury time of the first half to equal the scoresheet by 2-2. Both teams were on equal score till Grejohn Kyei scored a stunning field goal in the 63rd minute to take his team into a lead by 3-2.

Clermont Foot maintained this difference till the end and ended up winning the match against PSG, who are still in the first spot of the points table of Ligue 1 so far.
