Kylian Mbappe blazes golden PSG opportunity over the bar after Lionel Messi pass
| Last updated
Kylian Mbappe missed a perfect opportunity to get on the scoresheet for Paris Saint Germain this afternoon after Lionel Messi found him open in the box against Nice.
Christophe Galtier's side were able to secure all three points away from home thanks to a first half effort from talisman Lionel Messi and then a late goal by defender Sergio Ramos.
It was a tidy first time finish from the Argentinian to give his side the lead in the 26th minute before provide a dinked corner for Ramos to meet with a well-placed header with just ten minutes of action to go.
Despite the win being secured the scoreline could have been very different if French marksman Kylian Mbappe had taken his golden opportunity to get his name on the scoresheet in added time.
Nice goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was caught off his line by Messi, who quickly looked up to spot his teammate in the penalty area before guiding a dinked pass into the forwards vicinity.
However, despite being faced without a goalkeeper in the net, Mbappe managed to sky his effort over the bar and into the stands.
