In the 26th minute, Messi picked up a pass from the bottom of Nuno Mendes’s bottom line and then hit a dangerous shot into the far corner, opening the score for PSG. This is Messi’s 702nd goal in professional competitions in Europe, surpassing the achievement of his colleague Cristiano Ronaldo (701 goals).
Messi still has the opportunity to improve his performance at least until the end of the 2022/23 season. Meanwhile, Ronaldo has left the European football environment to switch to the Saudi Arabian league. Here, CR7 continues to increase the record of the most goals scored in history, in all competitions (834 goals), 32 goals more than Messi.
According to the European press, Messi is likely to leave PSG after this season. However, the Argentine superstar will not be in a hurry to leave Europe. He is said to be in talks to return to Barcelona as a free agent. This is also the wish of Messi and his family after a period of not being able to adapt to life in Paris.
Recently, Messi is being turned away by PSG fans because of the defeat in the Champions League. The World Cup champion was just silent and showed his professionalism with an impressive performance on the pitch.
Messi’s goal helped PSG end a two-match losing streak, while maintaining a 6-point gap with Lens in the Ligue 1 championship race.
