Leo Messi is expected to start his first match in Paris Saint-Germain with Olympique Lyon on Sunday night and the pressure is still there.
Since arriving in France this summer after spending all his career in Barcelona, Leo Messi has been heavily tested.
PSG got off to a good start in their Ligue 1 season, winning all five of their matches so far, but after a clash with Club Brugge in their UEFA Champions League opener, there was criticism.
Since his first appearance at PSG, Leo Messi has received criticism from people like Michael Owen and another Argentine and former PSG player Omar de Fonseca.
If you line up with the front lines of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Messi, anything other than a win will be considered disappointing.
The European hiccup, which is linked to Argentina’s salary details at the club, revealed by L’Equipe, has increased pressure over the past few days.
The multi-talented side is expected to win every single game no matter who they face, and they need to get back to winning in Messi’s first outing in front of his new home fans.
