Handplanegoodness.com – Look at the ugly face of Lionel Messi who was disappointed on the bench when he was substituted while Kylian Mbappe remained. Lionel Messi’s ugly, sulky face was on full display after he was sent off in Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-1 draw with Monaco.
Despite three goals and two assists in four Ligue 1 games this season, it was not a seven-time Ballon d’Or-winning night. Messi didn’t score in this game. Messi had his chance to score when the ball hit the far post before half-time. Kylian Mbappe’s rebounding effort also hit the crossbar. Neymar scored the equalizer from the penalty spot in the second half after being knocked down inside the box. PSG continue to target four straight wins in the French top flight.
However, manager Christophe Galtier replaced Messi, with time remaining in the game. Pablo Sarabia replaced the Argentina legend, while Mbappe – who also had a bad night in front of goal – remained. Messi looks very frustrated on the Parisian bench. With less than a year left on Messi’s contract at PSG, former club Barcelona remain keen to reunite. Messi left Barca last summer after the club were crippled and unable to renew his contract due to financial issues.
