Lionel Messi & Mbappe Breaks Ligue 1 history
Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe have combined to net the fastest goal in Ligue 1 history, with the PSG striker finding the net just eight seconds into Sunday night’s clash at Lille.
Lionel Messi has sent the internet wild after teeing up Kylian Mbappe to score just eight seconds into Paris Saint-Germain’s clash against Lille – with the Frenchman’s rapid strike now officially the fastest in Ligue 1 history.
Messi and Mbappe’s swift link-up comes in the wake of reports claiming that there is bad blood in the PSG dressing room between the potent pair and Neymar following some controversial comments from Mbappe, who compared the quality of South American international competitions to those of Europe’s.
But the high-profile duo bore no signs of ill-will when Messi conjured up another moment of magic to send Mbappe haring through on goal straight from kick-off at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
The rapid strike left the former French champions stunned – and was later offically confirmed as the fastest goal in Ligue 1 history.
Shortly after teeing up his teammate, Messi got in on the act himself when he doubled PSG’s lead in the 27th minute with a controlled first-time strike from the edge of the box after a smart cut-back from Nuno Mendes.
Achraf Hakimi added a classy third before Messi grabbed his second assist of the night when he eased the ball onto Neymar in the penalty area to enable the Brazilian striker to clinically complete PSG’s stunning first-half rout.
