In the early morning of September 27, Beijing time, in the third round of the Turkish Super League play-offs, Galatasaray played Istanbul. Icardi scored the only goal of the game and Galatasaray won 1-0. There was an interesting scene in this game: Icardi and his teammates "saluted" Messi's classic penalty cooperation, but unexpectedly overturned...
In the 36th minute, Galatasaray won a penalty opportunity. Usually, Icardi, the team's number one penalty taker, will take the penalty.
Still, 30-year-old Icardi wants to play tricks. The second brother gave the ball to teammate and Turkey international winger Akturkoglu, and in Galatasaray, Akturkoglu was the number two man in attack, contributing three goals and five assists in six league games. Icardi high-fived Akturkoglu before exiting the 12-yard line.
Actulkoglu stood at the 12-yard line, ready to take the penalty. The moment the Turkish winger made a kick, the opposing goalkeeper had already fallen. However, this is a feigned shot! Actulkoglu swung the ball, Icardi quickly inserted, facing most of the empty goal, Icardi actually pushed the ball deflected!
Icardi and Akturkoglu's cooperation was in place, but on the final kick, Icardi overturned. The second brother held his head and was annoyed, and he couldn't believe it... It was Icardi's plan, but his kick deflected and missed the lead.
"As" said that Icardi and his teammates failed to imitate the famous scenes of Messi and Suarez.
In the 2015-16 La Liga season, Barça beat Celta 6-1, and Messi produced a penalty. Messi stood on the penalty spot and lightly swept the ball and Suarez followed up to score. Messi and Su Shen's penalty combination is regarded as a classic.
Of course, Icardi has also had successful cases of penalty combinations.
July 2020 friendly match Paris Saint-Germain vs Belgian side Vasland. In the 47th minute, Paris Saint-Germain won a penalty, Neymar crossed and Icardi threw off the defender and scored. It's just that it was a friendly match, the intensity of the game was not great, the opponent was weak, and Neymar and Icardi did not overturn.
