Paris Saint German won Manchester City in yesterday’s group stage fixture. It was a well deserved victory for Mauricio Pochettino’s side as they finally got the better of Pep Guardiola’s side. They failed to get the better of Manchester City in the Champions League quarter final last season season but made it count yesterday.
Lionel Messi scored his first goal for Paris Saint German after a long wait, it was a brilliant goal from the Argentine forward with Kylian Mbappe setting him up for the goal. It was Lionel Messi’s fifth goal against Pep Guardiola’s side, Paris Saint German were completely dominance yesterday and deserved the win.
Following yesterday’s match up, Lionel Messi laid at the bottom of Paris Saint German’s free kick wall in the final minutes of the second half. Paris Saint German conceded from a free kick the last time they met in the Champions League, they wouldn’t want to allow the same mistake. It was shameful for Lionel Messi to stay in that position it’s so unlike Lionel Messi to be below the wall.
Paris Saint German had players who could do the job for them but instead Lionel Messi agreed to lay below the wall. It was a decision Lionel Messi made himself, not often do we see top players laying below the free kick wall. Lionel Messi’s display yesterday showed he’s someone of great character.
