Lionel Messi is still cooking in Ligue 1 and provides ridiculous assist for Kylian Mbappé

The massive spotlight on Paris Saint-Germain from earlier this season has flickered and remains on a dim setting. PSG are out of the Champions League, eliminated from the French Cup, lost Neymar for the rest of the season and have a relatively comfortable lead in Ligue 1.

There aren’t any big matches left on the schedule for the Paris club with just a handful of league matches against midtable or lower Ligue 1 sides. A sobering end to a season with so many expectations.

On Friday PSG defeated bottom of the table Angers 2-1 courtesy of a Kylian Mbappé brace. 

Mbappé’s second goal was set up by a ridiculous Lionel Messi assist. The Argentine spotted the run of Mbappé and supplied a perfect pass through the Angers defense and right to the foot of his attacking partner.

MessiVision is out of this world. The assist marked his 15th in Ligue 1 this season. He also has 15 league goals. 

With service like this and the talent that Mbappé possesses it’s no wonder he sits top of the Ligue 1 Golden Boot race with 22 goals. Canadian forward Jonathan David is hot on his heels though with 20 goals to his name.
