ATLANTA, GEORGIA—Looks like the big three of Paris Saint-Germain Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe need to play with more chemistry in order to win.
PSG suffered a shocking 2-0 defeat at the hands of Stade Rennais on Sunday.
Messi the expected scorer for PSG did not live up to the billing as he failed to score a goal for his team in their defeat.
Five days after an impressive win over Manchester City in the Champions League, with Messi scoring his first for the club, the Argentine soccer superstar fired blanks on Sunday.
Mbappe and Neymar also failed to score a goal for PSG in their defeat on the road.
In signing his PSG contract, Messi is expected to earn between €30-35 million ($35-41m) net a year.
PSG was able to contact Messi on August 4 after his supposed five-year contract with Barca fell due to economic problems.
Now that Messi is a PSG player, it would increase the likelihood of Mbappe, who is out of contract next summer, signing a new long-term deal with the club.
