Mbappé Confirms Calling Neymar a 'Bum' vs. Montpellier, Discusses PSG Transfer Drama

  Mbappé Confirms Calling Neymar a 'Bum' vs. Montpellier, Discusses PSG Transfer Drama Kylian Mbappé admitted to calling Neymar "a bum" vs. Montpellier on Sept. 25, and that not even the arrival of Lionel Messi was enough to change his mind about leaving PSG View the original article to see embedded media.Kylian Mbappé has confirmed the gossip that he called PSG teammate Neymar "a bum" during a 2-0 win over Montpellier on Sept. 25; but no, there's no rift, he insisted. After being subbed off in the 88th minute with PSG leading 1-0, Mbappé fumed on the bench where he called Neymar a "clochard," which means bum or vagrant in French.

Give the ball to Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi and let them do the rest. PSG's used that strategy to success in a home Champions League match against RB Leipzig, coming from behind to win 3-2. Messi scored twice and Mbappe had a hand in all three goals with one goal, one assist and one drawn penalty.

PSG stays atop Group A, one point ahead of Manchester City, while RB Leipzig's chances are now faint with three matches remaining. The German side, coached by American Jesse Marsch, is at the bottom of Group A after three straight losses.

It was a tough result for Leipzig, who arguably deserved more and probably felt like they could leave the Parc des Prince in Paris with a famous victory when the visitors took a 2-1 lead with about a half hour to go. But Messi scored twice in the span of 10 minutes to overturn the result, though both goals came from Leipzig gifts.

Veteran forward Tyler Ennis signs with Ottawa Senators

  Veteran forward Tyler Ennis signs with Ottawa Senators Ennis, 32, spent the 2020-21 season with the Edmonton Oilers, scoring three goals and nine points in 30 games. Though those numbers won’t jump off the page, the undersized forward is versatile enough to move around."Tyler has had a strong training camp. He’s a highly skilled veteran whose leadership qualities should prove as valuable as they were here two seasons ago. He’s capable of generating offence both at five-on-five and on the power-play, and, with an ability to play both wing postions, he’ll be a good addition for us at forward.

American midfielder Tyler Adams had a giveaway that led to Messi's first goal on a feed from Mbappe. The second goal came on a delightful Messi 'panenka' penalty kick which was earned by Mbappe, who made the most of slight contact from defender Mohamed Simakan.

PSG could have scored a fourth goal deep in stoppage time when the referee awarded another penalty to PSG, but Messi allowed Mbappe to take it and the French forward sent the ball over the bar. He still won the man of the match award.

90th min.: Four minutes of stoppage time.

89th min.: SUB - PSG looking to close out this win. Defender Thilo Kehrer on for Julian Draxler.

83rd min.: SUBS - Leipzig are having a go at this one. On come Poulsen, Forsberg and Henrichs for Mohamed Simakan, Angelino and Andre Silva. It's now four in the back for Leipzig.

78th min.: Leipzig firing shots left and right trying to get back into it. No luck on the shots and Keylor Navas tips a deflected ball over the bar. The corner leads to no danger.

75th min.: It's a panenka from Messi on the penalty kick! PSG up 3-2.

"It's possible. I'm not sure," Capitals coach Peter Laviolette told reporters about the future Hall of Famer.

73rd min.: Kylian Mbappe draws a penalty! He tries to dribble past Mohamed Simakan, who puts his hands up to hold him off and Mbappe makes a meal of it.

72nd min.: Dangerous Leipzig set piece into the PSG box and Gvardiol heads off target. But that was dangerous.

70th min.: SUB - Leipzig brings in Josko Gvardiol for Lukas Klostermann, who picked up a knock. Still a 5-4-1 formation when defending. PSG moved to a three-man back line with the insertion of Danilo and Georginio Wijnaldum.

67th min.: Equalizer for PSG! And it comes on a giveaway by American Tyler Adams in midfield. His backpass sends Kylian Mbappe through and he crosses to Lionel Messi for the goal. Messi's first shot comes off the left post and he follows it up at the goal line.

65th min.: PSG's Achraf Hakimi goes in the book for a foul on Ilaix Moriba after Leipzig sprung another dangerous transition. And this is how PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino feels about it:

Messi and Mbappe lead PSG to victory against Leipzig

  Messi and Mbappe lead PSG to victory against Leipzig Lionel Messi scored twice and Kylian Mbappe played a starring role but later missed a penalty as Paris Saint-Germain came from behind to beat RB Leipzig 3-2 in the Champions League on Tuesday. The Argentinian was set up by the France star for the equaliser and then coolly chipped in a 74th-minute penalty awarded for a foul on Mbappe. Mauricio Pochettino’s team, who also saw Mbappe miss from the spot in injury time, are now top of Group A at the halfway stage, a point above City, who won 5-1 at Club Brugge earlier.Leipzig, beaten by PSG in the semi-finals in 2020, are bottom without a point to their name.

61st min.: SUBS - Two changes in midfield. Danilo Pereira and Georginio Wijnaldum on. Ander Herrera and Idrissa Gueye off. Meanwhile, Leipzig brings on Ilaix Moriba for the injured Amadou Haidara.

57th min.: Leipzig takes the lead! Another ball wide left to Angelino, and another beautiful cross to the far post, where Nordi Mukiele puts it home first time. Very similar to the first goal.

56th min.: Rare spell of pressure from PSG and first Marco Verratti, then Lionel Messi trying to penetrate, but Leipzig holds firm.

52nd min.: Dangerous Leipzig attack. Laimer with the cross from the right and it goes across the box with no teammates close to connecting.

50th min.: Wow. Idrissa Gueye with another hard foul in midfield shortly after picking up a yellow. That could've been a second yellow, and Gueye gets off easy.

48th min.: Yellow card for Idrissa Gueye for a foul on Andre Silva just outside the box. Nkunku attempts to curl it over the wall, but it's high.

46th min.: Second half is underway. No changes.

Halftime: PSG 1, RB Leipzig 1

Halftime: It's the typical PSG performance this year: They have moments of pure brilliance, but they're not strong enough to take the stranglehold of a game. Kylian Mbappe is the best player on the field and he got the breakthrough goal on a solo run, but PSG can't regularly create attacks and danger. That's not the case with RB Leipzig, which has succeeded in turning the ball over and then has clear ideas and movements in the attack. This PSG defense can be exposed. All to play for in the second half. While we wait, enjoy this Mbappe skill move.

42nd min.: Nkunku comes close! On a quick transition, he shows off his skill near the top of the box and fires the right-footed shot just wide with a defender in his face. He's been dangerous.

41st min.: Great defensive play by Leipzig's Willi Orban who pokes the ball away from Mbappe in the box. Nothing comes of the PSG corner.

36th min.: Leipzig is having success at forcing turnovers in midfield with its press. As long as they can contain Mbappe, it doesn't look like other PSG players are set to pose any danger.

28th min.: And there's the equalizer! Leipzig carve up PSG's back line, switch the point of attack to the left and Angelino delivers a fantastic cross to the far post where Andre Silva scores first time.

27th min.: Leipzig hit the post! Andre Silva with the excellent control and shot in the box and Keylor Navas was beat. The ball goes off the base of the right post. PSG seems passive now and Leipzig taking advantage.

25th min.: Free kick for Leipzig into the box and PSG captain Marquinhos has to clear over the bar! That was dangerous. PSG clears the corner kick, too.

23rd min.: PSG seem to be relaxing after taking the lead. Mbappe and Messi attempt the give-and-go into the Leipzig box, but Leipzig's goalkeeper comes out to snag it.

Kings reportedly seeking trade for depth right-shot defender

  Kings reportedly seeking trade for depth right-shot defender With Drew Doughty out for at least the next eight weeks due to a knee contusion and Sean Walker out for the rest of the season after tearing his ACL and MCL, the defensive depth for the Kings has certainly taken a hit, particularly on the right side.  To that end, Pierre LeBrun of TSN and The Athletic reports in the latest TSN "Insider Trading" segment that Los Angeles is looking to add a depth right-shot defender at a minimum.

19th min.: Willi Orban picks up a yellow for putting the block on Mbappe before he could sprint again. Learned his lesson the first time.

7th min.: Julian Draxler stretches to meet a cross into the box and his redirection nearly puts the ball on net.

1st min.: Kylian Mbappe with the run down the left and RB Leipzig can barely catch up. His cross from the left goes across the box. His teammates couldn't catch up either.

1st min.: We're off. PSG kicks off.

  Lionel Messi injury update: PSG star subbed out at halftime, status uncertain for Champions League PSG star Lionel Messi was subbed out at halftime of the Oct. 29 Ligue 1 match against LOSC Lille. Although it was a precautionary move, his status for the Champions League is uncertain.Messi had a poor first half playing the role of "false nine" at the center of the forward line. He gave the ball away and was often swarmed by defenders as Lille clogged the middle of the field. He struggled to create with his back to goal, threading a ball to compatriot Angel Di Maria in the one instance he was afforded a brief running spurt at the Lille defense. He finished with two shots off target and lost possession seven times.

2:30 p.m. ET: Looks like warmups are happening:

PSG vs. RB Leipzig: Starting lineups

Without Neymar (adductor) and Angel Di Maria (suspended), manager Mauricio Pochettino would normally be expected to field Mauro Icardi at center forward flanked by Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi. But the personal issues that forced Icardi to miss a couple of training sessions have also cost him a spot in the squad. Julian Draxler will team up with Mbappe and Messi on the forward line.

PSG starting lineup (4-3-3, left to right): 1-Keylor Navas-GK — 25-Nuno Mendes, 3-Presnel Kimpembe, 5-Marquinhos, 2-Achraf Hakimi — 27-Idrissa Gueye, 6-Marco Verratti, 21-Ander Herrera — 23-Julian Draxler, 7-Kylian Mbappe, 30-Lionel Messi

PSG subs (10): 50-Gigi Donnarumma-GK, 60-Alexandre Letellier, 24-Thilo Kehrer, 22-Abdou Diallo, 20-Layvin Kurzawa, 17-Collin Dagba, 39-Nathan Bitumazala, 15-Danilo Pereira, 18-Georginio Wijnaldum, 28-Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe

Interesting changes introduced by RB Leipzig manager Jesse Marsch, who has switched up the forward trio. Instead of the usual Forsberg-Poulsen-Nkunku line, he gives Andre Silva the start. Tyler Adams is also back in the starting lineup after being rested over the weekend.

RB Leipzig starting lineup (3-4-3, left to right): 1-Peter Gulacsi-GK — 16-Lukas Klostermann, 4-Willi Orban, 2-Mohamed Simakan — 3-Angelino, 27-Konrad Laimer, 8-Amadou Haidara, 14-Tyler Adams — 22-Nordi Mukiele, 33-Andre Silva, 18-Christopher Nkunku
