Standing almost at the concluding stage of his professional career, Lionel Messi is still a top-class goal scorer and he can prove it any day. Over the years, fans have poured their immense love and support into their favorite player. And why not? From time to time, the Argentine star has proven to be wonderful and brilliant.
Messi’s shining performance for PSG with a goal and an assist
Lionel Messi did an outstanding job for PSG in its 4-3 Ligue 1 home win, defeating Troyes, after scoring a goal and an assist in the contest. Messi’s only goal in the match was one of his best displays of the season. The phenomenal outside-the-box goal from the PSG forwards leveled the match to 2-2 in the second half.
Overall, Messi has recorded a mind-blowing 38 outside-the-box goals in the league game since the 2017-18 season. It makes him stand first among all the names in Europe’s top five leagues during this tenure. The second name on the list is Kevin de Bruyne, the Manchester City midfielder with 19 amazing goals.
Will he look to extend the streak in the upcoming matches? Surely yes!
In the bigger scenario, Messi has recorded at least one goal in his last three matches for PSG in all competitions. He will be looking ahead to keep up this streak in PSG’s UEFA Champions League away group stage match, where they take on Juventus on Wednesday.
In-form Messi is surely a bigger attraction for fans all over the globe before the Qatar World Cup, in 2022. With high chances of him playing his last World Cup, excitement will be at its best. What awaits there? Let’s wait and watch!
