Messi’s Phenomenal Bicycle Kick Creates Rampage at Clermont Foot Securing Victory With 5-0

It was an sensational start to the season for PSG, who managed to keep all their stars.

The PSG version of the 2022-23 season made their Ligue 1 debut on Saturday with a spectacular 5-0 win over Clermont, including Lionel Messi’s splendid overhead kick that sealed the win. In addition to its quality, the goal was a clinical finish that “La Pulga” has achieved only a few times in its career.

It was an powerful start to the season for the French side, who managed to keep all their stars, led by Kylian Mbappe.

Under the leadership of Christophe Galtier, PSG will aim not only to seek victory in the domestic league, but also to reach the Champions League.

Messi excelled in the closing stages of the game, scoring twice with one goal in the 80th minute and another in the 86th minute.

The latter was a fine overhead kickoff a long ball from Leandro Paredes. He controlled the ball with his chest and twisted his body in the air to pass in front of the goalkeeper.

Players who Played a Vital Role in PSG’s Win including Messi

Another very strong player was Neymar, who scored the first goal of the game with three assists in the ninth minute.

Achraf Hakimi made it 0-2 in the 26th minute and Marquinhos made it 0-3 in the 38th minute. The first goal came when Neymar effortlessly pushed in front of the goalkeeper after an assist from Messi.

The home side did not react and their lead extended in the 25th minute when Hakimi shot full speed down the right side of the box.

He received the ball, shot past Mory Diaw, and before the break Neymar played a cross to Marquinhos who literally used his head to score. PSG dominated the game in the second half, with Messi scoring two goals, including an overhead kick. 

Next weekend, PSG will play Montpellier at home and Clermont will go up against Reims.
