Stop all these. Mbappe should naturally be above Messi in the penalty heirarchy as far as PSG is concerned.

You can never satiisfy human being grin grin see what a penaldo fan is saying .
Same way they said Messi can never do without Iniesta and Xavi . The duo left and Messi kept on winning ballon d' or ,later on they said Messi is hiding under the shadow of Neymar. Neymar left and Messi still won ballon d' or and increased his scoring rate. The even said, Sep Blatter(former FIFA president ) was the one favouring Messi uncessarily . Sepp Blatter left FIFA and Messi kept on winning Ballon d' or
Now you guys are talking about Mbappe grin
Accept the fact that who God has blessed no man can curse
If Messi is used in similar position like Mbappe you will be surprised at the rate of conversion of goals

Hazard can dribble four players with an open net and then pass the ball to a teammate.

It's a major reason why his goal scoring stat is so low.

Messi does not compare at all in that department.

There is a difference between assists and been selfless.

Though it is nearly similar.

Assists is not equal to selflessness.

Assists mean you know to how to find team mates in better goalscoring positions very frequently.

Selflessness means you sacrifice personal glory for others.
You have a clear goal scoring opportunity but you gave it to a team mate instead.

Nobody does that better than hazard.

Do you understand what you wrote. let's staft there first.
you have a clear scoring opportunity and you give it to your team mate. Scenario 1: Team mate scores (that's an assist)
Scenario 2: team mate misses (that's a goal scoring chance)
Scenario 3: team mate passes the ball to another (that's a key pass).
In all 3 scenarios Messi surpasses Hazard so what are you really saying.

The problem here is you don't watch Messi play as a lot of people here. You guys just look at scores and imagine the play instead of watching the game

Messi gives Mbappé a penalty when he’s on a hat trick, and fighting for the Ballon d’Or in PSG 3-2 home win against RB Leipzig tonight.

This is not the first time, Messi has passed on such opportunities to his team mates

Messi handed 30 penalties over to his
teammates, 8 of which would have allowed him to complete a hattrick:

-Neymar (11)
-Suarez (9)
-Eto'o (3)
-Griezmann (3)
-Coutinho (2)
-Ibrahimovic (1)
-Mbappe (1)

Could Messi be the most selfless player in History?
that's the only different between him and C.Ronaldo... the dude is too humble no self centered

if messi is selfless then what do you say about bruno fernadez who was on an empty goal post but he still pases the ball to another man u player to score, has messi ever done that?? And for those of you here always calling ronaldo fraud! Please check this out, Ronaldo left real madrid to juventus in the seria A which is the toughest league in the world and he still proved himself there winning the golden boot, and he later returned to the premiership because he is not scared of new challenges unlike that midget messi who left barcelonia for farmers league because he is scared of new challenges, NOW TELL ME WHO IS THE BIGGER FRAUD BETWEEN THESE 2 PLAYERS?? if tapping even easy i know say all players for dey do am, because you always need to know how to position yourself to always be at the right place and at the right time and that automatically makes ronaldo a genius and scientist need to study him. IF YOU KNOW THAT RONALDO IS THE GREATEST PLAYER EVER PLEASE LET'S DESTROY THE LIKE BUTTON!
