We've run out of ways to describe Lionel Messi's pass for Kylian Mbappe goal, he's on another level

Lionel Messi's pre-assist for Kylian Mbappe's opener in Paris Saint-Germain's 5-0 victory over Auxerre was out of this world.

The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner and his teammates signed off from club duty ahead of the World Cup in style.

Mbappe opened the scoring 10 minutes in thanks to a Nuno Mendes cross, but the real architect behind the whole move was Messi.

He received the ball just outside the Auxerre box with several defenders running towards him.

The 35-year-old picked his head up, spotting the run of full-back Mendes out wide. Messi then delightfully scooped the ball over the defence towards Mendes.

After timing his run perfectly, Mendes hit a first-time effort across the box. The Portugal international was likely aiming for goal, but it didn't matter.

Mbappe was on hand to fire into the back of the net to give Christophe Galiter's side an early lead.

PSG players celebrated with Mbappe while also trying to give Messi the credit he deserved. Check out the pass below.

Fans have reacted to the goal and they think Messi is ready to cause havoc with Argentina out in Qatar.

One person commented: "Mbappe scored the goal but everyone wanted to celebrate with Messi."

Another said: "How did he see that pass?"

A third tweeted: "Messi wants to cause a madness at the World Cup."

While someone put: "Messi’s pass is not a goal or an assist however it’s more beautiful than both. This is something that statistics won’t show you."

PSG ran riot in the second half with four goals. Carlos Soler doubled their lead six minutes after the break before Achraf Hakimi, Renato Sanches and Hugo Ekitike got in on the act.

Messi, as well as Neymar, came off in the 74th minute with the World Cup's start date just seven days away.

Argentina are in Group C at the World Cup. Their first game is against Saudi Arabia on November 22.

Last month, Messi confirmed this World Cup would be his last as a player. He's entering the tournament in sensational form, having registered 12 goals and 14 assists in all competitions this season.
