You're close, it just needs a few minor fixups.

When a card is not matched in create_row:

            row.append('   ')                  # same number of spaces an item would take

Then in create_grid:

      print_row = f'{row} | '                  # adjust spacing
      get_row = self.create_row(row)
      print_row += ' | '.join(get_row) + ' |'  # eliminate extra bar and adjust spacing
      print(print_row)                         # and remember to print the row!

Then finally:

#  print(game.create_row(1))    <- none of these are needed because create_grid does it
#  print(game.create_row(2))
#  print(game.create_row(3))
#  print(game.create_row(4))
