Can Lionel Messi (35, Paris Saint-Germain) surpass Kylian Mbafe (24, Paris Saint-Germain) at the most important moment?

Argentina and France will play the long-awaited final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar at 0:00 am on the 19th (Korean time) at the Lusail Stadium in Lusail, Qatar.

The biggest concern ahead of the game is the scoring match between Messi and Kylian Mbafe (24, PSG), who are scoring 5 goals side by side in this tournament. Messi, who is trying to win his first championship in his last World Cup, is performing tremendously in every game. He is performing a splendid last dance, ranking 1st in scoring and 1st in assists with 5 goals and 3 assists in this tournament alone.

‘Next generation Ballon d’Or 1st place’ Mbappe is also not easy. He boasts quick feet and sharp shooting, and is leading France, the ‘defending champion’, to win the World Cup for the second time in a row. Mbappe led the team to the final in the semi-final against Morocco, with a fantastic dribble and Randall Colo Muani’s additional goal.

However, Messi has never met Mbappe and won. He met his now teammate Mbappe on three occasions, winning only one draw and two losses. 메이저놀이터

The first match was in the round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. At the time, Messi struggled with two assists, but was unable to defeat Mbappe, who scored multiple goals at the age of 20. France defeated Argentina 4-3 and went on to win the tournament.

Messi met Mbappe even while wearing a Barcelona uniform. Barcelona met PSG in the 2020-2021 European Football Federation Champions League and played two matches, and were eliminated with one draw and one loss.

In the first leg at Camp Nou, Mbappe sank Barcelona. He scored a hat-trick in a 4–1 win over Barcelona, ​​with Messi scoring the opening goal from a penalty. Mbappe tasted the goal with a penalty kick in the second leg and led to a 1-1 draw. At that time, Messi broke the net with a mid-range shot, but also missed a penalty kick.

Messi and Mbappe, who are now eating a pot of rice at PSG, will face off again for the World Cup trophy. As this tournament is Messi’s last World Cup, there is a high possibility that it will be the last confrontation between the two players.

Will Messi defeat Mbappe for the first time and become the final winner, or will Mbappe inherit the throne from Messi? The 2022 World Cup in Qatar leaves only the final journey.
