Many PSG fans (Paris Saint-Germain) believe that Mbappe intentionally left the ball to help Neymar score in an unmarked position.
In the 52nd minute, Lionel Messi’s high pass made the Lille defense confused. Achraf Hakimi closed in and successfully stole the ball at the foot of the home team player, before making a cross to Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe deliberately gave up the opportunity to score for Neymar?
The striker born in 1998 swung his legs but did not finish but let the ball come to Neymar. In an unmarked position, the Brazilian star comfortably scored to defeat goalkeeper Leo Jardim, raising the match score to 5-0 for PSG.
Mbappe’s handling has created many different opinions on social networks. “Mbappe intentionally missed the ball or missed?”.An account named Irlande wondered. “This is a purposeful ball from Mbappe. He noticed that he had two defenders in front of him, so he let Neymar score,” user Winter Beast commented. “In my opinion, Mbappe missed with his wrong foot,” said a Torun fan.
Before that, Messi also caused controversy with the helpless assist for Neymar to score in the 5-0 win over Clermont.
