Lionel Messi has finally scored his first goal for Paris Saint Germain and it he did in sublime fashion as the former French champions best Manchester City 2-0 at the Parc Des Princes.
PSG had earlier taken the lead as early as the 8th minute via a well-worked goal scored by Idrissa Gueye before Messi doubled the lead with fifteen minutes from time.
Messi’s goal came via a blistering counter-attack which saw Idrissa Gueye lay a pass to the Argentine on the flanks leaving him face to face with the Man City defenders who tried to cover acres of spaces left open.
Measi’s pass to Mbappe and a deft touch by the French International gave the six-time Ballon D’or no choice than to bury the ball in the top left corner of Donnarumma’s goal.
Messi’s goal against Manchester City is his 27th against English oppositions in the UEFA Champions League.
