On Wednesday, Kylian Mbappé for Paris Saint-Germain missed a penalty attempt twice before blazing past an open goal after the ball fell back to him on his second attempt.
The World Cup star then left the game against Montpellier in the middle of the first half due to an injury.
Video playback determined that center defender Christopher Jullien had hauled back Sergio Ramos in the seventh minute, and PSG was given a penalty.
Mbappé’s first attempt was stopped by goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte, who then produced an incredible save to knock Mbappé’s strike onto the right post after the referee requested a second attempt.
When the rebound went to Mbappé, he fired the ball high over the crossbar, strangely missing an open goal. Mbappé was bewildered despite having scored two penalties as part of his hat trick for France in the World
Cup final and another in the loss to Argentina in the penalty shootout.
Mbappé accepted the challenge, sat down, and pointed to his left thigh. In the 21st minute, he was replaced and was able to leave the field on his own.
After around 30 minutes, Ramos left the game hurt.
On February 14, the first leg of PSG’s round-of-16 Champions League encounter against Bayern Munich will take place.
