Lionel Messi Scores First PSG Goal vs. Man City in Champions League


In his third start for PSG, Lionel Messi finally has his first goal for the club—and it came in memorable fashion against Manchester City.

With PSG already leading 1-0 in the 74th minute, Messi finished off a quick counterattack by cutting in from the right and finding Kylian Mbappé at the edge of the penalty box.

Mbappé, always looking for the quick one-two, rolled a pass back to Messi before the Argentina star buried his shot into the top corner for his 121st career Champions League goal—and his first for anyone but Barcelona.

The 34-year-old forward joined PSG earlier this month after more than 20 years at Barcelona, which couldn’t keep Messi due to the club’s well-documented financial troubles.
