The issue of penalty duties has been a topic of debate throughout the season at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). At the start of the season, Mbappe and Neymar had a disagreement over who should be the first choice penalty taker, with Mbappe ultimately taking on the responsibility.
With Neymar unavailable for the upcoming game on Wednesday, Lionel Messi is likely to become the default penalty taker in Mbappe’s absence due to injury.
Additionally, Mbappe’s early exit from the game is of greater concern to PSG’s coach, Christophe Galtier, than the missed penalties. He had finally managed to reunite his full attacking lineup, but now he is faced with fitness worries over both Mbappe and Neymar.
