Messi’s wasted goal

As Messi wasted a clear opportunity 50 seconds after the second half began, the Paris team came dangerously close to repeating the early shock situation.

Half time
Lopez, the goalkeeper for Olympique Lyonnais, was alert in stopping additional attempts from Messi and Neymar Jr., while Mbappe was the least active member of the Paris assault.
The outcome of the meeting was still up in the air, so Christophe Galtier made an effort to reenergize the ranks by substituting Mokili and Vitina with Fabian Ruiz and Marco Verratti in an effort to breathe new life into the center.
When it came to Lyon, he lacked any offensive fangs, and neither the trio nor the backup option, Ryan Sharqi, posed a threat to Dembele, Lacazette, or Ekambi.
