Lionel Messi scores maiden goal for PSG in 2-0 win over Manchester City

The Argentine superstar, Lionel Messi scored his debut goal for PSG, helping the Ligue 1 giants take a 2-0 win over English Premier League champions Manchester City. It was Messi’s 121st goal in the Champions League. He became the only second player after Cristiano Ronaldo to score in the 17th consecutive season of the UEFA Champions League.

The 34-year-old dribbled towards the box and played a one-two with Kylian Mbappe, and then Messi struck it into the top left corner to score his maiden goal. And with this win, PSG opened their Champions League campaign after a 1-1 draw against Club Brugge two weeks ago.

“I hadn’t been able to play recently and this was only my second game in this stadium. I’m adapting to my new team. The more we forwards play together the better our relationship will be. We all need to grow together and improve and keep giving our best,” Messi said after the win (To UEFA)

Messi also expressed his happiness to have helped his team secure a win after their disappointing draw against Club Brugge in the Champions League opener this season.

“They were great opponents. It was very important for us to win the match after our draw against Brugge. I’m very happy to have scored,” he added.

“I’ve spent 20 years watching him score goals from the other side of the opposite pavement. And it’s the first time he scores for a team I manage so I had to celebrate. You need this type of performance and players like him need to feel the back of the net. He needs to create links within the team after 20 years in Barcelona. He’s feeling different things, there’s a lot of new feelings for him.” said PSG’s head coach Mauricio Pochettino
