After their recent game, PSG now leads their group, though they are tied on points with Club Brugge.
Messi and Kylian Mbappe's chemistry is what created Messi's magnificent goal in the second half. The former Barcelona captain took advantage of the vast space in Manchester City's midfielder, and with a little help from Mbappe, Messi scored for his new team.
Messi made his PSG debut last month. He entered in the ground as a substitute in Reims' 2-0 away win.
Although his previous matches weren't good enough to please many, his recent performance and goal for sure did the work. Messi himself was enjoying the moment, which he even showed in an interview after the game. As per Messi words,
"I'm very happy to have scored." Further, he adds, "I hadn't played in a while, and this was only my second game in this stadium. I'm getting used to my new team." He goes on, "The more we play together as forwards, the better our relationship will be. We must all work together o grow, improve, and continue to give our all."
Moreover, Messi said, "They were formidable opponents. It was critical for us to in the game after our opening draw with Brugge. I was desperate to get out there. I haven't had much time to play. I'm still getting used to my teammates and the team, and today was a big day."
