Leo Messi Want but could not. He added another game without scoring at Bernabeu (there are already seven games in a row) and he lost the tie he was called upon to make a difference with PSG, a team that played the game of choice for a long time. You’re drowning in your nightmares.
Between Mbappé’s exhibition and Benzema’s outrage, it started with Donorumma’s mistakes. Collective depression after the draw led to Real Madrid’s life when the entire French team collapsed before their own futility.
PSG called for a change in the football argument in the middle of the second half, or what it looked like, but added Pochettino Cueva, who left Di Maria, to regain the nerve and control of the ball he had enjoyed in the first half. Or a 3-1 win over Draxler, which was already speculated to be impossible, and Messi has been the perfect runner – up to the shadow of the monumental Mbappé and electric Neymar.
Pre-Leo time speed is no longer there. There is no change of pace or better anticipation of it. Between intelligence, positioning and lines, he makes up for these shortcomings with an even more spectacular pass, but he needs the global support of his team and has shown that they are not a team because of the crowd of PSG stars. Vulnerability.
It was easy and comfortable to play with the wind in support of Pochettino’s team who came to dance for several minutes in Madrid. Verdi fell, Mbappé got tired … the discovery was over.
In all of this, Messi’s role was mentioned, he did so on the 24th in the second half since he intervened on 37 occasions in the first half; He finished with 32 good passes in the first game and 21 in the second, and the shooting, already in the 90th minute, was a free kick to Cordois’ goal, and a shot brilliantly deflected half an hour later with his hand close to Argentina. , Which included his only shots on goal for Madrid.
Like PSG, Leo went high and Bernabeu collapsed at the party, initially handed over to his team-mate, who was able to recover two balls in his area (one was stolen from Cruz and the other from Vinicius), and only returned in the second half.
He acted more as an assistant than as a striker, a superb deep pass to Neymar in the first half and another to Mbappé in the second half, without adding any of those moves that had calmed the white ground in the past.
He made no mistake, a clear indication that he was not trying to get out for speed or a triple, he did so twice in the second half, winning the race against Nacho for the first time and then being cut by another platinum Motrich. Senior and it ended up being much higher than him.
Whatever his glorious night might have been, in the end nothing went. First it was Mbappé’s night, one goal scorer and two more were canceled for offside, and then, it’s Benzema’s monumental night, it turned him back against a Real Madrid. From the broken toy turned into a storm in front of the broken PSG into a thousand pieces.
And Messi … left quietly. Sank back into Europe.
