Since leaving his Childhood Club Barcelona in the summer, the Argentine Captain has been widely criticized on social media for not being able to find the net in France’s top flight.
However, all that changed as Nantes headed for Parc des Princes on Saturday afternoon with Messi breaking his Ligue 1 duck in a fun way.
The Parisians suffered a minor concussion during the match with Keylor Navas receiving a red card and Nantes equalizing despite Mbappe netting early. But luck turned to PSG when Dennis Appiah tried to stop Messi from finishing third in the final to see him score one of his goals for the rest of the season.
And while PSG may feel very lucky to once again get the lead under amazing conditions, there is nothing lucky in the way they set the stage for Messi to score.
Lionel Messi may not have made his debut in Ligue 1 with the Puskas Award rival, but it should come as no surprise that he has found the net with the best individual goal.
