PSG 3-2 RB Leipzig LIVE! Messi penalty - Champions League result, match stream and latest updates today

PSG vs RB Leipzig - LIVE!

PSG duo Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi found their groove as they inspired their side to a 3-2 comeback victory at home to RB Leipzig in a Champions League thriller on Tuesday.

Mbappe was the first to strike and Messi had the France forward to thank for his second-half double after the Ligue 1 side had fallen 2-1 behind following goals by Andre Silva and Nordi Mukiele either side of the interval.

Mbappe, who missed a stoppage-time penalty, set up Messi for the equaliser and won the penalty that the Argentine converted with an ice-cool chip after what had been a lacklustre performance from the club’s new signing.

The result left PSG top of Group A with seven points from three games, one point ahead of Manchester City, who demolished Club Brugge 5-1 away earlier on Tuesday. Leipzig have no points.

Recap the action from a big night at the Parc des Princes with our match report.

Here’s the winning goal...

22:08 , Malik Ouzia

FT: PSG 3-2 Leipzig

21:58 , Malik Ouzia

Mbappe’s miss is not a costly one. All three points to Paris.

Penalty miss!

21:56 , Malik Ouzia

90+4 mins: Remarkable!

Messi, on a hat-trick, hands the ball to Mbappe instead and he blazes his spot-kick over the bar!

21:54 , Malik Ouzia

90+3 mins: This could well be a PSG penalty!

It looks like Hakimi goes down looking for it in real-time but the referee is called over for a look at the screen and there’s definite contact.

Spot-kick is the verdict - Messi will have chance for a hat-trick...

21:51 , Malik Ouzia

90 mins: Julian is going to make way as Thilo Kehrer enters the fray to help see this out.

21:45 , Malik Ouzia

84 mins: To say this would be harsh on Leipzig would be an understatement. They’ve been excellent tonight and are pushing for a leveller now.

21:39 , Malik Ouzia

78 mins: Penalty appeals at the other end now as Verratti makes two heroic blocks in quick succession. The first of them saw the ball fly through his body and strike his arm on the floor behind him but VAR doesn’t fancy it.

GOAL! PSG 3-2 Leipzig | Lionel Messi (p) 75’

21:36 , Malik Ouzia

Panenka!

He’d had a quiet night but Lionel Messi has come alive and he puts PSG ahead with a delightful dink down the middle from the spot.

21:34 , Malik Ouzia

73 mins: Penalty to PSG!

GOAL! PSG 2-2 RB Leipzig | Lionel Messi 67’

21:28 , Malik Ouzia

He’s come up with the goods!

Brilliant from Mbappe, a lovely pull-back into the path of Messi, whose effort is actually a little tame but Gulacsi can only push onto the post.

The ball rolls across the line and probably would’ve gone in off the other post anyway but Messi follows in to make sure.

21:26 , Malik Ouzia

64 mins: Achraf Hakimi’s had an absolutely torrid evening as well, not in the picture as Angelino delivered the cross for either goal. He’s now in the book, too, for halting a Leipzig break.

21:22 , Malik Ouzia

61 mins: Here comes Pochettino’s response. Danilo is on for Gueye, who has been rubbish, and Wijnaldum is on for Herrera.

You’d think they might shift to a back three and push the two full-backs higher.

GOAL! PSG 1-2 RB Leipzig | Nordi Mukiele 57’

21:18 , Malik Ouzia

Brilliant! And no less than they deserve!

It’s another sensational cross from Angelino on the left and Mukiele times his run perfectly to meet it with a cushioned, side foot volley into the roof of the net.

21:17 , Malik Ouzia

55 mins: It’s so, so passive from PSG at the moment but Verratti almost makes something happen as he surges through the gears and bundles through the challenges but is eventually crowded out.

21:10 , Malik Ouzia

49 mins: There’s been no response from PSG at the start of the half - in fact, it’s Leipzig straight back on the front foot and winning a free-kick on the edge of the box.

Oof, and it’s not all that far away as Nkunku curls a yard or two over the bar.

KICK-OFF!

21:06 , Malik Ouzia

We are back underway in Paris...

Here’s how Mbappe opened the scoring...

20:55 , Malik Ouzia

HT: PSG 1-1 RB Leipzig

20:49 , Malik Ouzia

Mauricio Pochettino will not be a happy bunny...

20:44 , Malik Ouzia

42 mins: Shocking from PSG and they’re so nearly punished. Hakimi takes a throw to Marquinhos, who acts like he’s got a cigar on and is robbed, allowing the Germans to break.

Kimpembe does well to hold up Nkunku but he still shimmies inside to get the shot away, firing just wide.

20:42 , Malik Ouzia

40 mins: Finally a decent bit of PSG pressure but it’s halted by an offside flag against Mbappe. Leipzig look more like the side we’ve been used to seeing in Europe in the last few years than the one that has been struggling in the Bundesliga this season.

20:37 , Malik Ouzia

35 mins: Mauricio Pochettino looks a very angry man. PSG just can’t get any sort of rhythm going in possession - all their best stuff has come on the counter-attack through Mbappe.

GOAL! PSG 1-1 Leipzig | Andre Silva 28’

20:30 , Malik Ouzia

He won’t be denied this time!

PSG are all at sea as Angelino finds acres of space down the left but still credit the full-back for a superb low cross that leaves Silva the simple task of powering home.

Post!

20:29 , Malik Ouzia

27 mins: Almost brilliant. Nkunku nods down to Silva, who cushions with his first touch and then fires at goal on the volley as he swivels but he’s denied by the post.

20:28 , Malik Ouzia

25 mins: How has this stayed out?

Leipzig float a free-kick in from deep and it’s hooked across the face of goal by Haidara but Marquinhos manages to power it over his own bar rather than into his own net.

20:23 , Malik Ouzia

21 mins: Mbappe looks none the worse for that collision as he springs the offside trap again but his attempt to lay into the path of Gueye is half cut out and the ‘keeper is out to do the rest.

20:20 , Malik Ouzia

18 mins: And now Mbappe is down, too, having been absolutely flattened by Orban off the ball. The Leipzig man legs it to the other side of the field to try and evade the referee’s attention but he’s not fooled and the yellow card is out for the first time this evening.

20:18 , Malik Ouzia

16 mins: A bit of concern here for Nuno Mendes, who is down and in some pain after a crunching challenge in midfield but it looked a fair one.

He’ll be fine to continue, it seems.

GOAL! PSG 1-0 Leipzig | Kylian Mbappe 10'

20:11 , Malik Ouzia

Leipzig are furious - but what a finish!

The Germans want a free-kick on the edge of the PSG area as Messi challenges Silva but nothing’s given and the home side break brilliantly as Draxler finds Mbappe.

The Frenchman shapes for the far corner but drags his shot low and hard in at the near to leave the ‘keeper no chance.

20:09 , Malik Ouzia

7 mins: Good response from the home side and they get their first sight of goal as Herrera curls an early ball towards the back post, where Draxler leaps high to connect but can’t keep the volley under the bar.

20:05 , Malik Ouzia

3 mins: Big chance for the visitors!

Nkunku is unsurprisingly the man who leads the charge but he actually plays a pretty poor pass to Laimer on the overlap, who has to check his run and is denied by Navas at the near post.

KICK-OFF!

20:02 , Malik Ouzia

The Eiffel Tower sparkling in the background, we are underway...

19:57 , Malik Ouzia

The players are in the tunnel at the Parc des Princes. We’ve just seen pictures of Lionel Messi embracing his former Barcelona teammate Ronaldinho pitch side ahead of kick-off.

15 minutes to go...

19:47 , Malik Ouzia

19:33 , Malik Ouzia

In the other game in this group, by the way, Manchester City are romping to victory against Club Brugge, which means that PSG are going to have the chance to go a point clear at the top of the group but they will have to win to do so.

Here’s how PSG did it last time out...

Standard Sport prediction

18:35 , Malik Ouzia

Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe should have more than enough between them to fire PSG to victory without Neymar. Leipzig are slowly gathering momentum but this will be too much of an ask under the lights in Paris.

3-1 to PSG.

Leipzig team news

18:24 , Malik Ouzia

Jesse Marsch’s Leipzig is without Brian Brobbey (thigh), Marcel Halstenberg (ankle), Dani Olmo (thigh), and Marcelo Saracchi (knee).

PSG team news

18:15 , Malik Ouzia

Neymar will miss the game after suffering from groin pain since his return from international duty.

“The priority is always the wellbeing of the player,” coach Mauricio Pochettino told a news conference. “Neymar has a little problem which we hope he will only last for a few days and he will be back with the squad as soon as possible.”

Sergio Ramos (calf) is yet to return to full training and Leandro Paredes (thigh) is out for a month. Angel Di Maria is suspended with doubts over Keylor Navas (muscle), Julian Draxler, Layvin Kurzawa (both illness) and Mauro Icardi (personal).
