The Paris Saint-Germain trio of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar produced a sensational comeback to beat Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League group stage

Paris Saint-Germain came from behind to win 3-1 at Maccabi Haifa on Wednesday, making it two wins from two in the Champions League group stage. Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar all scored. Tjaronn Chery’s incredible volley gave Maccabi Haifa the lead after 24 minutes, much to the delight of a raucous Sammy Ofer Stadium. In the beautiful atmosphere and a green-clad Sammy Ofer Stadium, the Parisians immediately sensed the fervor of the home audience, which had been waiting for the return of the Champions League for more than 12 years.

The first half was tense, forcing the Rouge et Bleu to retreat to defense. In the second half, Mbappe scored his 30th Champions League goal for the club, tying Edinson Cavani’s record. Mbappe’s speed, on the other hand, assisted Lionel Messi in scoring an equalizer. Neymar sealed the deal late. Leo Messi came close to scoring twice before Mbappe repaid the favor as the pressure mounted. The ball was sidefooted into the far right corner of the goal by the No. 7 (1-2, 69′). As a result, he and other players shared the club’s Champions League scoring lead. A significant historical event. Until the very end. Neymar’s clinical strike on the final attack gave his team the victory (1-3, 88′).
