Leo Messi scored the goal in the 74th minute of the match. It was the citizens who were attacked. Leo Messi got the ball in the middle of the counterattack. He grabbed it and hurried to the D-box of Man City. Defender Emery Laporta, who was attached to Guy, was avoided and passed to Kylian Mbappe.

Mbappe did not keep the ball to himself. Messi gave a return pass at the first touch. By then, Messi was standing in the gap in the face of the D-box. The six-time Ballon d’Or-winner made it 2-0 with a left-foot magic shot after receiving the return ball. Earlier, Guye scored the first goal in 8 minutes.
