Neymar and Kylian Mbappé lacked success, often even stepping on each other’s feet, against Montpellier (2-0). The Frenchman did not lose heart on the PSG bench at the end of the match, while his team had just increased the score and finally headed for victory. Worrisome?
16 shots including 6 in the first ten minutes, and 5 on target throughout the match, reflections of overwhelming domination, dangerous situations in spades, and yet, PSG waited for the last moments of the match and the entry in play by Julian Draxler to fold the meeting against Montpellier (2-0). The fault of an incredible competition of clumsiness disputed between the Brazilian Neymar and the French Kylian Mbappé, both absolutely wanting to score a goal.
Mbappé to Gueye: “He does not give me the pass”
As a result, rather than combining and working in the same direction for the good of the team, they ended up tripping over each other. And not only once, Neymar forgetting in particular to serve Mbappé when he presented himself against the Montpellier goalkeeper, shortly after the hour mark. At the end of the match, while the score was still 1-0 and the victory far from being acquired, the Brazilian did not however forget to serve Draxler for the 2-0 goal.
And rather than rejoice, when he had just left, Kylian Mbappé found a way to complain. Frustration. Caught in the act by the cameras of Canal +, broadcaster of the meeting, the world champion striker lip-smacked a reproach directly addressed to his Brazilian teammate, letting go of Gueye, who was next to him: “He don’t give me the pass. ” Since the start of the season and the arrival of Lionel Messi, the technical relationship between Neymar and Kylian Mbappé has been far from idyllic on the pitch.
