Fans think Lionel Messi must have eyes in the back of his head after inexplicable pass to Kylian Mbappe.
Because of the misconception that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has eyes in the back of his head, Lionel Messi’s pass for Kylian Mbappe needs to be explained.
After impressive victory over Clermont Foot and Montpellier, PSG travels to Lille this weekend looking to make it three wins in a row in this season’s Ligue One campaign.
And Messi, who after a subdued debut season in Paris was controversially left off France Football’s Ballon d’Or shortlist, seemed very sharp in a recent training session.
In a game with less players, the Argentina captain connected with Mbappe and displayed pure magic.

Messi was in a confined area when Mbappe spotted him and shouted “LEO!” as he requested the return pass. Sergio Ramos and other defenders surrounded him, making it difficult.
However, after touching it to remove it from his feet, the legendary Barcelona player effortlessly sent the ball back to Mbappe without even raising an eyebrow. He merely knew his location.
Although Messi is accustomed to scanning before receiving the ball to make sure he has choices, this brilliant pass was executed with total telepathy.
After receiving one touch, Mbappe slid past Gianluigi Donnarumma. Meanwhile, Messi’s vision left the crowd in amazement.
Messi-only items He has repeatedly executed this style of no-look pass under extreme pressure and with complete confidence during the most important games.
During the 5-2 victory against Montpellier last Saturday, Mbappe bumped into him, and he had a fascinating moment where he threw the Frenchman a filthy look.
Mbappe was pleading with Neymar to commit a foul in an effort to atone for a previous 12-yard mistake.
There are credible rumors that Neymar scored on his own accord rather than provide his teammate a second chance.
Then, in the dressing room, the duo had to be separated.
After refusing a ball from Vitinha while on the counter, Mbappe, who recently signed a new deal at a hefty 130 million signing bonus, made headlines for turning irately away from the play.
