Lionel Messi seemingly stole the opportunity of a hat-trick from Kylian Mbappe, during PSG’s 4-1 win of Club Brugge.
It happened that when the penalty was won in the 75th minute, Mbappe already had a brace, and could’ve completed his hat-trick with another goal.
However, it was the 22-year-old who unselfishly gifted the penalty to Messi; Leo didn’t insist on taking it.
Verratti encourages Mbappe for the gesture.
Messi then pointed to Mbappe immediately after scoring. More like ‘thank you!’
Not long ago Messi handed Mbappe the opportunity to take a penalty despite being on a hat-trick. Perhaps Mbappe was just returning the favor.
