Little magician Lionel Messi has boosted his hopes of winning the FIFA BallonD'or Award for this year after he scored two second half goals to turn the game on its head at the expense of German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in the Champions League this week.

PSG and RB Leipzig met in a Group A clash as far as this season's Champions League group stage campaign is concerned and the French Ligue 1 leaders had to rely on two second half goals from Messi to win the game. Argentine national team skipper Messi is seen by many as the favourites for the FIFA BallonD'or and he didn't do his chances any harm by making a big impact to lead PSG to victory. The ex-Barcelona star finished on the podium for the FIFA BallonD'or Award last year behind the duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski and he would be hoping to go two better by winning it this year.

For the RB Leipzig game, PSG took the lead through the impressive KylianMbappe inside nine minutes after the layoff from Julian Draxler. The away side drew level thanks to summer signing Andre Silva on 28 minutes off thecross from Angelino as the two teams went into the break on level terms.
Angelino was a menace on the left side of the RB Leipzig team and he also provided the second goal scored by Frenchman NordiMukiele with the hour mark approaching thus paving the way for the Messi show which produced two goals in seven minutes. PSG were behind for just ten minutes before responded with the first of his brace off the assist from Mbappe. Messi scored the winning goal of the game with a panenkapenaltyon 74 minutes after Mbappe was brought down. Mbappe had the chance to make the scoreline a more comprehensive one in the final moments but he fluffed his lines to hand Messi virtually all the headlines at the end of the game.
